The Weekly Facts of Loss – 34.6 pounds

Weekly Recap

It has been a productive week; I have found “my” Weight Watchers meeting at 8:45am on Thursdays. Despite not working out much, I lost 1.2 lbs, so I’m happy.  The meeting is very interactive and upbeat. I loved the leader and the atmosphere she created.  After this little triumph of losing a pound, I am re-energized for the process. Still looking for a work out buddy. WW leader thinks I should be able to find one in the Thursday group. I am hopeful.

The Olympics is dominating my schedule. I can’t get enough of it. Instead of motivating me to move myself, I am sedentary watching the play by play and marveling at the accomplishments of the athletes. Normally, my TV is kinda background noise to my activities, but not so with the Games. I am focused watching them to the exclusion of all other activities. I can’t even work on my drawing while the Games are on.  Writing is hard as I can’t think up anything new to say because of the distraction. Good thing this event will be over in a week.

Tip of the Week

Kashi Peanutty Dark Chocolate Granola Bars. 3 points and the chocolate is really rich. They aren’t as sweet as the other bars on the market because they don’t use high fructose corn syrup.  They are more expensive than the more popular brands, but I think they are worth it for occasional treats.

It Sux To Be Fat I really like this site. She’s on Weight Watchers as well. Well written and interesting.

Plan for the Week

Try to move more. I won’t put down how many days because I just want to move more. When I say 4x or whatever number and I don’t do it, I feel bad, and I don’t feel motivated, just defeated. So for this goal, I will be vague and see if it results in more movement.

Continue eating the way I have been. It’s working. But I do want to watch my portions more. I’m kinda lax about that. If I tighten up, then maybe I’ll get better numbers next week.
