Take that!

Friday weigh-in was a success! After gaining a pound last week and swearing that would not happen again this week, I successfully lost 3 pounds. I was so happy about that. I was confident going in that I lost something, I just didn't know how much. I was a little surprised at how much, though, as it was not my best week for walking. I only logged 8 miles for the week (short of my goal of 15 per week) and I also did TaeBo one day (short of my goal of twice a week). BUT, at the end of the day, I did the best I could given how busy I was.

I do best when I have my meals all planned out and when I can get home in time to do  my walks and/or TaeBo as planned. It's when I have crazy busy days and other stuff gets in the way that I struggle with eating right and trying to at least get some activity in. I need to be able to roll with the punches a little better. My problem is my type-A personality and my controlling nature. Something to work on.

My total for 4 weeks back on WW is 8.6 lbs. gone. I hit my 5% and got my first star. My next goal is to hit my 10% which will put me halfway to my goal. I am definitely up for the challenge!


  1. Great job getting your first star! You had one setback but you reversed it PLUS went above this week so good for you!

    Have a great weekend :)

  2. That's great :) I am hoping to be successful tomorrow, but I'm just not sure what the issue is... I kind of wish at times like these that I went to the meetigns rather than online so someone could look at my points and tell me what I'm doing wrong. I log everything - I'm rarely ever using my weekly points, and still nothing.. I guess I just need to push myself with more exercise.. more than 3-4x a week... bah. who knows.
