Okay, it's not really gold, but close enough. I earned my first 5-pound star! I have to say I am a sucker for virtual praise and have found it works quite well for me. Getting recognition for small successes really motivates me and these little icons hold special meaning. Joey also got his star but he isn't nearly as needy as me on the praise front.
These past two weeks have not been hard at all, but we have had to make conscious changes. The only thing I am really noticing is that I am eating a ton of fruit and, I have to admit, I am bitchier. The fruit thing is good, the bitchy thing is not, so let's pray that Cranky Kelly takes a hike fast.
So, congratulations to us! There is still a long way to go (26 more pounds for me), but we are off to a great start and we need to celebrate each milestone along the way no matter how small. By the time we're finished I will have a horn o' plenty of little Weight Watchers stars!
