Weight Watchers #1

Yay! I’m so thrilled! Today I officially lost my first 4 kgs (8.8 pounds). I’m so proud of myself! I looked at myself in the mirror and said: “This might actually be happening!”

I started losing weight with Weight Watchers Online six weeks ago, which means I lost about 1.5 pounds per week. I was very skeptic of Weight Watchers in the beginning, since it’s this paid online service and I was going to have to count points. It sounded silly, but I heard some very positive stories and decided to give it a go. Well, I LOVE it. It suits me so well, and has helped me a whole lot so far.

I’m planning to do a lot of posts (maybe even videos) on my progress, my tips, my failures, etc.

Last but not least, I’ll give you some facts and figures so you know where I come from and why I’m trying to lose:

  • I’m a 22 year old student
  • I weighed 84 kgs on my heaviest point (185 pounds)
  • I’m 176 cm tall (69.3 inches)
  • I LOVE food so much. I love to cook. I love sweets, I love snacks, I love big pieces of meat, I love cheeses, I love pasta dishes (especially lasagna) and I love wine and beer. Not your typical weight loss candidate 😉
  • I started to gain most of the weight when I just started at university by not paying attention to what I was eating. I wasn’t eating fries and burgers everyday, but in general I ate too much and drank too much beer as well.

Hopefully this post will motivate you guys! Let’s do this!!

Welcome :)

So, before I start chatting away on the most randomn things, a little introduction would be in place! My name is Madeline, I’m 23 years old and I am a university student in the Netherlands. I love the internet, from youtube to online shopping to blogs, and I really like make-up. Lately, I’ve been into eating healthy and losing weight as well. I use Weight Watchers online to achieve my goals, and that’s going pretty well. I’m planning to talk about books, healthy lifestyle, make up, the interwebs and everything else I feel like chatting about. I love comments, so please do leave them and I will reply! I had a beauty blog before this, but there is a lot more that I would like to chat about, and I’m not the biggest make-up guru out there (understaaaatement) so I figured I should leave actual beauty blogging to someone else.

As you might understand, my native language is Dutch. My English might not be perfect! Please correct me when I make mistakes, but be nice as well pretty please! Also, misschattishnl.wordpress.com is my other blog that will only be in Dutch!

Please enjoy!
