Slow and Steady Wins the Race.
This week I weighed in at 157.7 pounds, a 0.5 pound gain. I’m still fitting comfortably in a size 10, no tight waists (some are even loose) or constricting sleeves or legs. This is the reality of the weight loss venture, up, down, up, down, down, up, up, down and down. We really have to focus on the L..O..N..G term results which in my case are ultimately down. Way down from my all time high of 223 pounds.
So how’d I do this week?
PRIORITY #1 “Do-It” : Get a smaller sized dress. No progress still, other than knowing exactly what I want. There’s a world of dresses out there, and yes, I will get the red on that makes my head spin with giddy happiness. What I DID do this week is purge my closet. Because this time is the final time, I’ve been giving away my large clothes. I’m not keeping them in the attic ‘just in case’. I am banning them from my life.
DO-IT: I’m a Weight Watchers fan, so I’ll stick to my points, 29 daily points 49 weeklies. This week I stayed within my daily allowance, and only ate extra points if I earned them with activity.
DO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week. Got this! Exercised six days – biking, Zumba, walking and some situps, pushups and one (ONE) pull up. I earned 52 activity points this week.
DO-IT: Consistency. Consistent I was this week. No binges, no slacking on exercise. I enjoyed some extra points again this week with a hamburger and chicken marsala, but I worked off the extra points within 48 hours.
DO-IT: Hydrate. Done!
DO-IT: Read a book. I purchased Refuse to Regain, but it was only available through Amazon in the Kindle format. I’ve started converting the file, and plan to start reading it tonight.
DO-IT: One update post a week. I’m still giving myself credit for posting at the Christmas Dress Countdown site, and I posted here, too. Good Me.
DO-IT: Link up to your weekly updates. Done.
DO-IT: Be supportive. Yes! I’ll see you all this week, too!
