So its been three months and I've finally made decisions and time for weight loss. After a lot of research, some trial and error, getting inspired by other bloggers' successes, and the long awaited end of my research project, I am ready to start losing weight. Its my last semester in grad school, and I am taking classes and work easy so that I can focus on weight loss and working out.

This past week, I joined weight watchers and went to my first meeting on Monday. I weighed in at 198 lbs (wow), although when I weighed naked I was a lot less. I guess that's what I get for wearing winter clothes to the meeting. I later noticed most people were taking over their shoes for weigh ins!! Anyway, I got all of my tools and started tracking immediately. According to the getting started book I should get 28 points per day plus 35 weekly points to use whenever. This week, I don't have pictures, but hopefully I'll get to that next week.

I also started the 100 Push-Up Plan  and 200 Sit-Up Challenge on Thursday and am doing the second day tonight. My sister Jamie is doing it with me. More importantly I start the C25K plan on Monday.
