Do you track your food and exercise? Tracking was the topic at Saturday’s Weight Watchers meeting. I am very consistent at using the online tracker either from a PC or my smartphone. I was surprised how many people still use paper trackers. Whatever works!
My favorite tip is to take a picture of your meal before eating so you can figure out how many points later. This is especially useful when dining out. I’m always taking pictures of food anyway, it might as well have a purpose. 😉
Weight loss slowed down a little this week. One thing I noticed is that I ate less of the weekly points than usual. I lost .8 pounds bringing the total loss to:
I earned 24 activity points last week by attending two pilates classes and walking 45-55 minutes three times.
I didn’t get to Yoga class on Sunday afternoon as planned and probably won’t for a few weeks. The class schedule isn’t jibing as well with my personal schedule as I thought when I bought the Groupon. Grrr!
As you saw yesterday, meal planning is back in full force and at least we ate healthily all week with a few new recipes. My challenge this coming week is to get that third resistance exercise session in.
How did your week towards great health go?
Congrats on your weight loss so far! I’ve lost 120 lbs. and believe that tracking everything on My Fitness Pal app has been a huge factor in my success! Good luck going forward!

Congratulations on seeing another loss. You have been so consistent over a number of months, so I know you will keep it up.
As for me, I had a horrible month. In fact, I just put up a video about it on my YouTube channel. 🙁

Hi Khaleef, thanks for the encouragement. Even though you’re not happy about your past month, putting it out there is so helpful. It lets people know that the trend isn’t always going to be down. You have to battle through the ups!
Great job! Keep at it. My yoga class got canceled so now I need to find a new place. 🙁
Kay Lynn says
Joe, I hope you find a new class soon. Your body might start talking back to you if you don’t. 😉

Congratulations on the great overall loss – that is wonderful. I think tracking food can be very beneficial and I too know quite a few people who do it in a paper journal!
Kay Lynn says
Thanks, Diane. I’m glad the paper tracker works for some. I would leave it laying around and forget where it was (at work, my desk at home or in the kitchen). My phone is ever present so that works best for me.
