Weigh In Wednesday - 5/6/09

Here it is again...another weight loss post! I'm down 1.6 pounds on my scale and 2.2 pounds on the WW scale. It was definitely more than I had expected. I was feeling like I had gained about 3 pounds this past week.

I'd have to admit that my workout this week weren't the greatest. I ran here and there. If I only had 15 minutes, I ran for 15 minutes on the treadmill. Whatever time I could dedicate to working out, I did even if it was only 5-10 minutes. I did a lot of walking on Saturday then on Sunday I worked in my fiance's mother's yard and ours. I finished our yard on Monday. I really didn't do much sitting around this past week.

As far as eating, I'm finding that I'm eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. It seems to happen this time of year. My favorite food this week was my WW bagel topped with WW cream cheese, Tastefully Simple Green Tea Peppercorn (sprinkled on) and a slice of tomato...yummy! Since they lowered the price of the Tim Horton's small Iced Cappuccinos, I think I've been having one EVERY day. Bad habit that I need to kick.

One topic that I've really been trying to work on is - "When you turn the negatives into positives, you will see positive results." I'm one to say, "Yeah, I've lost 17.8 pounds at Weight Watchers BUT I have a lot more to go." Or "I already blew it for the day, I'll start back on my diet tomorrow." I think I'm on the right thinking path now.

My goal this week is to workout everyday. Yep, everyday. I've been running,walking and strength training but feel that I need to do a little more. I'd really like to lose 2.2 pounds this week to hit my goal #3 of 20 pounds and be 40 pounds away from my weight loss goal for the year. My weight loss goal for the year may change as I near the goal. I'm finding that my weight may not be the ultimate determination of my goal. My real goal is to be toned and trimmed - not read skinny.

How did you do this week? What challenges are you facing? Did you try anything new this week?

Great job. I haven't weighed in yet this week. I'm afraid too. I know its going to be bad.

Thanks! I definitely thought this was going to be a bad week. I felt like I had gained at least 3 pounds. I was surprised.

I would jump on the scale and get it over with. I probably won't be as bad as you're thinking. If it's bad, I know for me, it motivates me to get moving and eating better.

Good luck!
