Weight Watchers Update

January 24, 2011

So seven weeks into Weight Watchers PointsPlus Online:

  • Lost 7.4 lbs
  • Down 2 inches in my bust
  • Down 1 inch in my waist
  • Down 0.5 inches in my arms
  • Thighs and hips remain unchanged (not surprisingly, I have rather slender hips and thighs).

WOO HOO!

This means that I am currently at my lowest weight in about 6 years.

Thoughts on the new program?  I really enjoy the emphasis on fruits and veggies and NOT 100 calorie packs.  I am also approaching it differently.  When I was last on WW, I did a lot of distorted eating.  I would freak out about things that I did leading up to weigh-ins, such as making sure I went #2 or not drinking in the hours before hand.  Now I’m just going with the flow a bit more.  Yesterday, I went to the gym and lifted.  On previous times with weight watchers, I might not have done that the day before a weigh-in, since lifting can cause you to hold water.  I told myself that I was being ridiculous, and just went to the gym.  And you know what?  I lost 2 lbs since last Monday.

I’m also taking weigh-in’s with a grain of salt.  How much I weigh on a given day does NOT measure my self worth.  And if I want to go to Cold Stone with Matt, I can!

Anyone have any success weight loss or fitness related recently?

    Great job! I’m still not loving the new points system . . . I feel that I’m getting too many points, especially knowing all of the previous point values. I lost 1.5 pounds last week, but am going to tweak my approach this week. I think I would do better if I could ever string together more than 90 minutes of consecutive sleep, too!

      Hey 1.5 lbs! I have heard that sleep is good for weight loss. I can’t imagine having 3 kids (two of whom are under 1).

    WOW you are doing an awesome job. I am following the new WW plan as well. At first I thought I wasn’t doing well, I gained the 3rd week, but now I am just going with the flow. Slow and steady wins the race 🙂

      I gained the 3rd and 6th weeks. But, like you said, just keep chugging along!
