My 15% milestone/goal has been hit! Indulged more than I should have over the weekend but it seems that my running is really paying off. Not to mention I haven’t been eating my weekly points so I was probably ok to go a little crazy over the weekend.
So close to 30 pounds, I can feel it!
I’m not going to invest too much time and/or energy into being upset over this .4 pound gain. First of all my last weigh in was somewhat unofficial since I didn’t do it at my usual meeting place, and it was on a completely different scale. Yes, either way I look at it, it was a gain. But I am going to look at it as loosing .8 pounds in the last two weeks.
I didn’t get to do any days of simply filling last week. This week I am going to make it to at least 2. I also need to get in way more Power Foods and GHG.
I earned 34 activity points and ran 14.62 miles. Not as good as last week but still very proud of myself. Was unable to make it to the gym today due to WW meeting and our board meeting at work, but tomorrow is a new day! Running really does work and I need to remind myself of that.
Running is still paying off! This week I’m not too proud of my tracking habits or my food choices but I am still very proud of my running! I squeezed in one day of Simply Filling last week but this week I’d like to shoot for at least 2. In future weeks I’d like to shoot for 3!
I earned 38 activity points and ran 17.75 miles. Not as good as last week but still hanging in there. My new work schedule is definitely effecting my work out schedule. I can’t let that happen! Another week of no excuses ahead.
I hit my 25 pound milestone at weigh in tonight!
At my meeting I was rewarded with a 25lb. charm for my WW key chain and a 25lb. magnet for the fridge. Oh, and another 5lb. star for my pocket booklet.
As my reward for reaching my 25 pound milestone I got to buy myself 2 new pairs of jeans (which I needed SO bad and actually bought last week). The first pair I tried on actually fit me like a dream. I will no longer dread going shopping for jeans!

Well, not technically 25 pounds – 24.6 pounds.
The picture on the left was me at around 189 pounds in July of 2011. I started Weight Watchers Online about half way through August of 2011 and I started attending WW meetings in the beginning of October 2011. The picture on the right was me this morning (December 30th, 2011) at 164.4 pounds. After less than 5 months on WW I have successfully lost 24.6 pounds – and I’m not planning on stopping anytime soon!
This puts me only .4 pounds away from my 164 pound January 3rd “Holiday Back On Track” goal – which will also be my 25 pound milestone!
I knew all of my hard work this past week over the holidays was going to pay off but I never imagined it would be to this extent. So to what do I owe these 3.4 pounds? It’s definitely a combination of a few things:
Let me start by saying: before beginning Weight Watchers I never considered setting goals for myself… at least not outside of school or work. Even at school and work I only really set goals for myself when I was required to.
I’ve been on Weight Watchers for about 10 weeks now – 2 and a half months. I have successfully lost 16.6 pounds in a healthy way by watching what I eat (using the PointsPlus system) and by working out regularly.
Somewhere in my 10 week journey I discovered that setting goals for myself was a huge key to my success. Not just large goals, not just scale goals. I was motivated by the WW Challenges to set small manageable goals for myself. Goals I could achieve on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Goals that will push me out of my comfort zone.
So, rather than pushing myself 100% to the max right off the bat with WW I would push myself little by little to achieve a small goal, and by doing so would be achieving one large goal.
A sampling of goals I am currently working on:
In addition to making small manageable goals off the scale, I have also decided to make small manageable goals on the scale. My first goal was 5%… second goal is 10% (almost there!) and I suppose my third goal will be an additional 10 pounds.
It’s a small start and I’m taking small steps but I think I will make it there some day
