After arriving home close to midnight Friday, I wasn’t sure I would make my Weight Watchers meeting the next morning. I did and I didn’t. I slept too late for my usual 7 a.m. meeting so went to the 8:30 one instead.
The topic last week was about using the tools we’ve learned to make smart choices. Key points included:
- Include at least one vegetable or fruit in every meal
- Plan for activity
- Have alternative treats to high fat/sugar items
- Use at least some of the weekly PointsPlus allowance
- Change self-talk to positive thoughts
- Plan ahead when dining out
Traveling makes it harder to stay on plan just because it requires more decisions and temptations. I stuck to the plan and ate within my points and it was reflected on the scale. For the second week in a row I lost 1.8 pounds which makes the
Total Loss: 18.8 Pounds
Only 1.2 pounds until it’s another 5 pound star. Since I’m traveling over the weekend this week, I’ll weigh in early on Thursday.
I walked three times this past week but didn’t make any of the pilates classes. This week I plan to take two and will try to walk three days.
I’ll be in Kansas and it’s not very walker friendly in the town where I’ll be visiting family. There aren’t many sidewalks or parks with trails.
Like last week I plan to bring some snacks for my travels and to make sure I have something to eat. The challenge will be to make the choices I want to when surrounded by favorite “home” foods. I’ll let you know how I did next week.

Woo hoo! Thanks so much for visiting the blog and letting me know.
Good job! Although I am not trying to lose weight, I find just moving around keeps my activity level up. It is not a active as walking or bicycling, but better than just sitting.

Krantcents, you’re right. Activity is more than what we think of as traditional exercise. Unfortunately, my job requires sitting at a desk most of the time and I need to make up for those hours of physical inactivity.
