Day 6 & 10 lbs of Flubber GONE!!

I'm Kim, I just joined the 6 in 6 yesterday! I started my journey to lose weight on the 1st, as my New Year's resolution. I'm counting Weight Watcher points, but since I'm kinda too poor to be spending money on the meetings or even the online version, I'm just counting points by myself. So, after six days of counting points I've lost 10 pounds! I'm so excited about that! My ultimate goal is to lose 100 lbs, but I could probably stand to lose closer to 150 lbs. Starting out at 300 lbs, it's probably a lot easier for me to drop the weight quickly in the first week then it would be for someone that is a lot lighter. And I'm sure it will take me a good 30 lbs before I start noticing it in myself. I'm not even sure if I'll be down a size after 30 lbs. I guess we'll see.

My biggest problem is exercise, I really don't like doing it. And I live in a very rural area, so a gym is out of the question. Especially since my husband works weird hours and I have three small children that I don't want to have to take with me. But, yesterday while I was at a church function a gal came up to me that is a friend of mine on facebook, so she heard me talking about my weight loss. She told me that on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at one of the local church buildings they have aerobics at 8:30 in the morning! Which is free!! It just so happens to be right across the street from my kindergartner's school, so I think I'm going to go ahead and do it! One less kid will be great for me and my baby, who is 4 months old, can come and sleep in her car seat and my 3 year old can play with all of the other women's children. It's kind of a win win for everyone. And on the days that my husband doesn't have to work until late he can stay home with the kids for me! So, tomorrow I'm going to go. I'll probably get my big butt whooped, but that's what I need!
