minus 1.4

woohoo, i'm truckin'! hopefully i can keep it up. i'm sure my progress will slow down sooner or later, but for now, i better enjoy it. by the way, i seriously LOVE weightwatchers. after i had my second kiddo, i was trying to lose weight on the sonoma diet and train for a marathon at the same time and i was ALWAYS tired. no energy. but i think it was because i wasn't eating enough calories. while the sonoma diet was fabulous for helping me to eat better (it taught me the importance of whole foods and veggies and it gave me lots of yummy recipes), i could never figure out a good balance of how much to eat. i'd either eat not enough which equaled no energy or i ended up eating too much and didn't lose any weight. with weightwatchers you have a daily points target to aim for, but when you exercise you earn extra points. i ALMOST ALWAYS use up my activity points that i earn from exercising, which, i think, has been the key for me to having enough energy for my marathon training and to keep losing weight at the same time. okay, i'm done with my shameless plug now.
