It's been a really rough two months but I'm back. Current weight: 158. Goal: Shed 10 pounds in the next 10 weeks.

Eating: I was at +80 over points last week (bad decisions etc) so I'm aiming for a lower week. My goal is to touch about 15 or fewer of my points outside of the normal 29
I'm going to the store tonight and going to cook a bunch of food for the week.
I will plan out the the next 4 days on WW tonight.
I would like to do 2-3 days of yoga; 2-3 days of weight lifting + 30 min of cardio on each of those days. My… Continue

This is the lowest I've been in my adult life. The only time I was this close was around 14 when I had just come back from a cruise and barely eaten. And people thought I looked good. So rock on!
Here's an updated goal sheet. This is important. This will take us all being aligned here because I really really really want to hit this goal by mid April. So I have 10 weeks and I need to be really focused. My body and I need to be focused-- this is us working together instead of me trying… Continue

1) Continue to workout: 2-3 body pumps/week; 2-3 spin sessions/week; 1 yoga class; yoga at home a few times/week; lots of walking-- goal is 10,000 steps a day + long long walks on weekends. So: probably getting about 60 activity points. 75 are planned here and I bet I won't do them all.
M: walking (5), spin (8), bodypump (4)
T: walking + yoga (7)
W: spin (8)
T: bodypump (4), walking (5)
F: yoga (4) walking… Continue

Today was much higher than I would have liked. What happened? The last two days have been great!
1) Breakfast was different. I eat oatmeal + 1 egg every day and I love it. I instead had some beans + oatmeal without the egg and that set me up in a bad way
2) The bf and I were together and he was starving by 1 but I wasn't hungry. I got him food then wanted some (might as well) but this put me around 17 pts by 1 without having felt like I'd had lunch. And I wanted more.… Continue

I had another two rough days but I've recovered and I'm doing well. I'll post again in the next few days.

And really 5 of the last 6 days. I'm now +57 on weight watchers. That's over the 49 points already. So not good. And especially a bummer since I just spend 2 weeks shedding weight from holiday. Ok, let's get to it.
Plan is to be OP for the next three days and then to have a light following week and I'll be back to where I was. It's not a race and it's about me learning to eat well when I am in stressful situations.

- Working out 5 times/this week with a combination of cardio, strength and yoga
- Working out first thing in the morning
- Staying OP, eating my activity points but ideally not my 49 extra. Aim to use maximum 35…

That's the theme for my time so far. I'm staying with friends who are amazing cooks and there is constant food around. So far every day I've been here has been around 50-60 points/day. Now for those of you on WW, you know this is not good. They are the new points, which is good. But this is going to lead to a gain, which I was really hoping to avoid. I am so hoping that after the holidays it calms down so I will take the -30 to -45 points, which I'll end up with at the end of this week. But… Continue

I gave up these whole wheat pitas that were a bit addictive earlier in the week but took on rice cakes instead. I just found out that the new brand of rice cakes I got are 70 calories for ONE not 70 calories for 2 like I'd thought. Booooo! They are so yummy with laughing cow cheese but they are incredibly unfilling. I had about 20 of them over the past 3 days. So that is not awesome.
My goal tomorrow is to have a very clean eating day with lots of veggies, fruits, protein and… Continue

Last weigh in was 156 2 weeks ago. And you all know how much this plateau has been frustrating me. So. wow! I'm not completely going to let it go to my head as:
1) I haven't lifted weights at all in 10 days after doing it regularly b/c of my foot. There has got to be some muscle mass loss here. Plus, my body looks less toned
2) I probably was a bit dehydrated
3) WW's scale was off? (that could happen, right? at a location that only did this once a… Continue

So, I'm all of those things. I did the new WW program last week (monday-sunday). I didn't touch my 49 extras but I did eat all of my activity points. I ate a lot of f&vs. I weighed in yesterday after a few days, which were maybe higher than they should have been but still part of the program and I was up .2 despite the fact that I was at a morning meeting instead of a lunch meeting, so it might have really been higher if I'd been consistent. This knocked me on my ass. I know, it's only… Continue

today was good. About 1525 calories I think and I feel good. I started the day with a run for about 32 minutes. I ran a 5k and ran the whole thing. I think that burnt about 350 calories.
I also weighed in at 153.4 which was AWESOME. I *so* want to keep that up for the weigh in on sat, which will be my first official weigh in in a few weeks. My goal is to be below 150 by the end of the year. I'd love to get below that before I leave for xmas vacation, which will be a… Continue
