This will be the last week I attend Weight Watchers meetings on Monday. I don’t like worrying about eating out on the weekend (due to salt; not overindulging). Plus, it’s a big interruption in the work day.
My new meeting day will be Saturday. Regardless of worrying about the salt, I did have a loss of 1.4 pounds this week. That means the grand total is….
Total Loss: 6.0 Pounds
Victories and Challenges: We ate at Macaroni Grill Saturday evening and I counted every last bite including that awesome bread! I selected one of their low calorie menu items, Pollo Caprese, that still managed to have 22 grams of fat!
The big challenge was exercise. I had some back pain after walking so had to back off. That and rain did me in and I didn’t come close to my goal of 8 exercise points.
Tracking and Healthy Checks: Tracking is essential for me and I kept it up the entire week. Oil is still the challenge in terms of healthy check but I’m getting better.
Next week: I plan to get the Xbox setup and try one of the exercise games. I think it could be fun.
What’s your victory and challenge this week?
Congrats on your weight loss! It is fun to see your progress, and I am so glad that menu planning is working for you. It makes a big difference, both physically and financially.
I’m re-joining WW tomorrow!! I love saturday weigh ins. Saturdays we’re always my ‘cheat’ days…weigh-in, eat whatever I want alllll day but be a good girl sunday-friday. Good luck!
I’ve been doing WeightWatchers a few months and I was stuck in a rut. I just added in regular exercise a two weeks ago, and so far I’m keeping it up.

Congrats on 6 pounds already! Woot! I’m only maintaining right now, but I will probably be getting back on the Weight Watchers wagon in March if increasing my exercise doesn’t start helping…

Slowing down a bit, but that’s natural. Keep at it! Have fun with the XBOX.

I was doing really good with exercising three times a week for a few weeks and then just suddenly stopped, I have no idea why. This is a reminder that I need to get back down on that bike starting tonight!
