Weight Watchers: Week 9

Starting weight: 147.2

2 weeks ago: 143.4

Last week (whoops…I forgot to post last week): 143.2 (YAY!  Down 0.2! A loss is a loss!)

This week (WEEK 9): 141 pounds (Down 2.2 pounds)

TOTAL LOSS: 6.2 pounds!!



So 2 weeks ago I was down because I hadn’t lost anything.  I had actually gained.  What a bummer.  And I said I was going to do better.  And I have.  I’ve been tracking religiously.  But the foods I’ve been eating haven’t been the best.  Because it seems like I’m always going over my daily points.  I am not going over my weekly bonus points and they say you can lose even if you use them but I don’t see it. And another blogger who is also doing Weight Watchers after her second baby said the same thing.  So even though my sweet tooth has been in full effect (hello peach pie!) I am going to have to really work on what I’m eating.  And if I want to eat those little extras (yeah, I’m still talking to you peach pie.  Seriously…it was delicious.  I really wanted to lick my plate it was so good) then I need to make sure that what I eat during the day won’t make me go over my points values if I eat the extra stuff.  Also, I am back into exercising.  I had not been doing very well and so my motivation was zero.  But last night I got off my lazy buns and went out and did week 1 day 3 of the Couch to 5k.  And it was a lot easier this time.  I don’t know if it’s because the weather was pretty much perfect last night but I didn’t get too winded.  So that was a bonus!  I’m hoping I can do week 2 days 1 and 2 by the end of the weekend.  And hopefully I can motivate myself to do a few videos I have.  So I feel like I’m moving in the right direction.  And I have 7 weeks left to meet my goal of 10 pounds.  So that is 3.8 pounds that I still need to lose.  I got this!

You're still down, you haven't gained overall, I say you're doing great!

Yay, you! Way to go. You totally have this! And you looked great zipping around St Mary last night, while the rest of us plodded along! You looked like it was easy breezy!

Good for you! It's hard to remember that it's a looooong process and not to get discouraged if you have a bad week. I think you're doing great. One thing I found when I was doing WW was that it helped me keep my overall daily points down if I made one of my zero point salads for lunch. I'd make a HUGE salad of all kinds of greens and vegies and then just put salt and a fancy vinegar on it as a dressing. I started buying some flavored vinegars and didn't miss the oil at ALL.
