wednesday (er thursday) weigh-in: week 7

Ill just come right out and say it, I got rid of 1.6lbs this week! I personally thought I would have gotten rid of more since I stuck to the plan so strictly this week, but you know what, Im still very proud of my self for getting rid of any weight! Which means I also reached the first goal WW sets for you, my 5%. And funny thing, I guess Weight Watchers actually thinks Im losing weight too fast?!?! (ironic right?) I got this little notice when I tracked my weigh-in on eTools.

For those who really wanna know my weight, you can technically do the math,
but Ill never actually say the number to you lol
I guess youre only supposed to lose 2lbs or less averaged weekly. It makes sense, but Im not sad that im losing more. lol. This also means that my daily PointsPlus target changes too. It only changed by 1 point, but I think its significant to realize here, that as you make successful steps in your weight-loss journey, its still important to reevaluate your daily intake and routines to help you continue shedding the lbs.

Couple of things Im proud of myself for this week. First, I did actually exercise! One day on the elliptical, one day doing a video, and I tried to do a third day. I busted out the old roller-blades, but unfortunately I found out once putting them on that they are both broken. To the point I cant use them and will have to buy a new pair. :( It kinda made me sad. I was really looking forward to going rollerblading during my lunch, and honestly I cant afford to get a new pair right now. (i looked them up on SportsAuthority.com and they are at least $100). And then I realized, I could totally make this my next reward for my 25lb goal! Not only is it something I want, but it will also be a great idea to motivate me to exercise. win-win.

The next thing Im proud about, the ability to walk past the donuts at the grocery store. You know, the ones they purposely place right on the end-cap in front of the fruit section. The oh-so-delicous Entenmanns' ones that have the crumb topping. With a huge sign that says "BUY 1 GET 1 FREE." I actually turned around and went back to get them. But as i stood there in front of the display, I asked myself, "Do I really need these? Or just want them? Is the taste of them so good for those couple of seconds that I would be willing to sacrifice my weight loss this week?" And the answer was no. So I proudly walked out of that store without them. No one else was proud of me, but you know what, Im not doing this for them, Im doing it for me! And then I remembered a saying I heard long ago in one of the WW meetings from the previous times I joined:

And its honestly so true!

Last but not least, I am proud of myself for tracking every single thing that I put in my mouth. The first week or two its easy because everything is so new. But by the time you past the 1 month mark, you get a little lackadaisical on the whole thing. And then come the time to input it all you may for get that you ate four two of those pecan clusters. ;) So this week I made sure that was one of my priorities, and Im happy to say I did stick with it.
