I rejoined Weight Watchers and yesterday was my first progress weigh-in. As always when cutting back on calories and volume of food I was pretty hungry the first 3 days but it became manageable after that. It was a good plan week and I’m happy to report a loss of 3 pounds. Let me shout that:
Loss: 3 Pounds
Victories and Challenges: The biggest victory was that number above but I would say also eating within plan the entire week. I ended the week with 19 weekly points unused as well as a few exercise points.
Tracking and Healthy Checks: For me to stay on plan I need to track what I eat. I use the mobile app and track online which makes it easier to keep it up. Healthy checks are making sure a member eats the recommended portions of food categories such as fruits and vegetables, dairy and healthy oils.
That last one is my biggest challenge. I only met the recommended two teaspoons of healthy oil two days. Unfortunately, oils in food already prepared don’t count.
Next week: I purposely didn’t try to start an exercise plan my first week. I thought it was enough of a change to follow the plan and track. This week I plan to start tracking exercise and am starting off with a modest goal of seven exercise points.
We’re having a celebration lunch at work Thursday and the menu is barbeque. It’s hard to stay on plan with corn pudding, pulled pork and potato salad but I will have a plan in place to make sure I am in control.
What’s your victory and challenge this week?
