In four weeks, I’ve gained 0.8 pounds. Something is off point. I’m not following the plan as it was designed. Not all points are created equal and every bite needs to be tracked. My challenge for this week is to follow the healthy guidelines. This week (minus today) I will do the following each day:
- Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables
- Eat at least 2 servings of lean protein
- East at least 2 servings of milk
- Eat whole grains
- Consume at least 6 8-ounce servings of water
- Consume up to 2 servings of healthy oils
- Take a multi vitamin
- Exercise for at least 30 minutes
- Limit my sodium, sugar, and alcohol intake
According to weight watchers, if I check all of these boxes I will be success in reaching my goals. Let’s see it they’re right.
Have you ever followed weight watchers? What is your key to successful weight loss?
Below is my progress so far on weight watchers. In the last 4 weeks I’ve gained 0.8 lbs. Not terrible, but certainly not the goal. My goal for May was to lose 10lb. I’m not off to a stellar start. But what do you expect when take a whole week off from exercising. With that in mind, I’m happy with my 1lb loss. Now let’s see what happens when I drag my tail to the gym. My legs have fully recovered from my most recent ½ marathon experience so back to the gym!
As you can see, I had a pretty bad eating week. I used the excuse carb loading in preparation for my run to consume a massive plate of pasta on Friday night. To be honest, it was not really that good. If you happen to visit Ma.x and Er.ma’s, pass on the pasta and shrimp dish. It’s 37 points and nothing special. Saturday was a total failure! I consumed way too many tortilla chips all in celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day. Only to find out that Mexico’s Independence Day is actually September 16th.
Despite completing a 1/2 Marathon, I succeed in gaining 1.8 lbs. Oh well! Today is a new day and I’m determined to loss weight so back on the plan.
Yesterday was the beginning of week 10. Down a total of 8 lbs.
7lbs below the goal. The good thing is that I’ve not quit.
But I’ve gotta get a move on…April will be here before we know it.
Today is the start of week 8. You know what that means…weigh in day. This week after drinking much wine and eating pizza and brownie bites, I’m up 1.6 lbs. I know…wrong direction.
