Week1 Weigh-In: 242.0 lb (-2.8 lb)
Weight: 242.0 lb
Loss: -2.8 lb
Total Loss: -33 lb
My first week on Weight Watchers went well, all things considered. I am allowed 36 points a day. Which is plenty of food...especially since fruits and veggies are FREE. And I STILL went over my points. Every. Single. Day. I don't really know how this kept happening. Well, I did kinda binge a bit on my days off from work (shoving cheese sticks in your face can rack up points quick). I only work three days a week (yes, I am jealous of me too). Those two days off are land mines. It is so hard to eat right on my days off.
Every day after I had written in my cool pink food journal I went to add up my points... and needed a calculator. I went sooo far over my daily points allowance. For this week, I planned ahead to make sure that doesn't happen again.
Even though I didn't exercise every day Monday through Friday as I had planned, I did get to the gym three days this week and walked on the treadmill for 45 mins at 2.5 mph (i know that's really really slow...go ahead and laugh, I won't think less of you). Best of all, I managed to get to they gym BEFORE work in the morning.
For those of you who have met my alarm clock and have seen the scars on its snooze button, you probably already know that I am not a morning person. But getting to the gym early seems to be the secret to my getting to the gym at all. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Could I have done better this week? Sure. Could I have done worse? Absolutely. I am happy with my results. And I plan on doing even better Week2.
