Pain is a temporary feeling, but quitting never stops hurting.

Today I am going to take about some weighty matters. (I am so punny!) I have decided to start a Wednesday Weigh-In on my blog. I am not brave enough to actually post my weight yet, but I think I will get there. On Wednesday’s I weigh in at Weight Watchers and so afterwards, I will be sharing my victories (darn well better be victories) with you.
I have about 40-50 lbs to lose. The thing about being fat and active is that it freaking HURTS. If I was just going home everyday and sitting on the couch, I am sure I would be fine, however when you have athletic goals, it makes for a lot more pain. Your feet hurt, your knees hurt, and you just do not feel great about yourself no matter the distances you cover with your aching feet. Basically, what it comes down to is that even though this is a triathlon blog, my weight is holding me back and therefore should be part of this blog. I know that there are several others that share weight loss goals and if you care to share about your journey or provide tips, please do.
The reason I am going with Weight Watchers is that it is easy for me to do. I can go online, enter my foods and have a point range to stay within. My problem with losing weight is that I am a binger, especially after working out. WW is a great way for me to track my foods and exercise and make sure I am not out eating my workouts.
Anyways, with that all said, I just got back from my weigh in and am DOWN 2.2lbs! Perfectly on track for my goals!
