Weigh In Wednesday - 3/25/09

Wow! Wow! Wow! I think I'm pretty much speechless this week. I lost 3.2 pounds last week! Now that's according to my scale. I stopped at Weight Watchers to weigh in before I went to the dentist. According to their scale (probably more accurate than mine), I was down 5.2 pounds!!! I updated my figures at the bottom. My weight loss to date on the top is smaller than the bottom chart because I had to work my way out of a few gains.

I still really didn't get any exercise in except for spending a lot of time walking around. I did climb the stairs at the EJ Nutter Center a few times on Saturday when we went to the Thunder Nationals. That was quite a workout each time I did it. Other than that, I've been staying busy and getting out of the house now that the weather is warming up. I find that I'm not snacking as much and eating to feed my feelings. It's paying off too!!

One thing that I've really been focusing on is "Stop, Rest, and Assess" my hunger. I'm trying to find my satisfied point rather than eat until I'm extremely full. I'm also eating more filling foods that way I avoid being extremely hungry. My biggest hunger comes on the weekends. I don't know what it is...maybe everyone being home all day and we really aren't on a schedule. I'm working on figuring it out though.

My goal this week is to drop 1.5 pounds and workout for at least 30 minutes 4 days this week. I've really got to get back into working out. I've made it to week 4 (maybe 5, I don't have the sheet in front of me) of the Couch to 5K and would like to finish the program and run a 5K before summer is over.

How did you do this week? What challenges are you facing? Are you seeing that you are more active now that the temperatures are warming up?
