Two weeks of Weight Watchers down and it’s getting a bit easier to remember to track and make good choices. I had a loss of 1.6 pounds this week which was nice but not enough to give me a 5 pound award.
Total Loss: 4.6 Pounds
Victories and Challenges: I made my exercise goal of 7 points by walking several times this past week. The office BBQ lunch was challenging because there really wasn’t any low point foods. I selected the pulled chicken for my entree (other choices were beef or pork) and small sides of baked beans and cole slaw. This was a victory because the other sides included potato salad and corn pudding which I like but have a lot more calories and fat.
Tracking and Healthy Checks: I did better on my healthy oils but not as well on dairy. Weight Watchers recommends members in my age group have three dairy servings a day and that’s hard to do consistently. Tracking was a breeze and I kept up with the mobile app.
Next week: We don’t have any social events planned this week so it should be status quo. My main challenge will be with increasing activity since I like sitting in front of a computer.
What’s your victory and challenge this week?
