So, tonight I had my first weigh-in since getting back on track and I was delighted to find that I’ve shed 3.5lbs!

I’m really pleased as I’ve put a lot of effort into making healthier choices with food and exercise this week.  I think the real test will be this week though.  In recent months, whenever I’ve had a ‘getting back on track’ phase, I’ve struggled to last much past the first week.

However, I’m still feeling different and more committed to making changes this time around.  I’m also taking inspiration from one of my fellow Weight Watchers this week.  She has lost 83lb in 9 months and said in our meeting tonight that once she got started on her journey, it got easier and easier as she was seeing results and her momentum picked up like a snowball rolling down a hill.  That made me remember feeling a similar way during my first round of weight loss with Weight Watchers.  I really want to feel like that again so thanks to that member for reminding me of it.

So, what has worked and what could have been better this week?

The Good

Planning out my meals and shopping in advance has helped me to stay on track with my meals this week and I’ve repeated this for next week.

I went to both my yoga class and swimming this week.  I was pleased to see that I’ve somehow mainted a good level of flexibility in the yoga class.

I have eaten quite a bit of chocolate this week, but I’ve pointed it all.

 

The Bad

Although I’ve pointed all of the chocolate I’ve eaten, I have eaten quite a bit of it and I know that this is not the healthiest choice I can make.  With this in mind, I’m going to conciously try to make better choices when it comes to snacks.

 

The Plan for Next Week

My small weekly goal is to get rid of some more weight again.  I’m not setting a figure on how much – given my recent track record, I’m happy with every ounce I shift!

The slightly bigger goal I’m aiming for is to get rid of 7lb in total to earn a Silver 7 sticker – I haven’t seen one of those bad boys for a while .  When I achieve this, I’m going to treat myself to some new earrings that I’ve seen.

To help me achieve these goals, this week I have again planned all of my meals, shopped for the necessary ingredients and I’ve prepared my lunches to take to work for the week in advance.  I’ve also booked in time to go to my yoga class and to go swimming again.

I’ve got no real social engagements planned for this week so staying on track should hopefully be relatively easy.

 

I’ll let you know how I get on.
