Despite eating an entire bag of Mikesells Honey Barbeque Potato Chips (my favorite of ALL time!) this weekend I managed to lose 1 pound this week at my weigh in.
That brings me to a total lost of 101.4. This is the highest loss so far. Since I have been yo-yo-ing back and forth over the past 6 weeks, I am proud to finally be able to be at the highest number so far.
I have been working hard since the weigh-in Monday to stay on track this week, hoping I can fight off that bag of chips I ate! So far, so good. I was stress eating a LOT last week and we spoke all about that at the Weight Watchers meeting Monday night. It was as if the subject was designed just for me.
I am attempting to be more active. I completely fell off the exercise bandwagon around November. The cold temperatures have not encouraged me to get out and walk, as I was all summer, and I have just allowed myself to become lazy again.
A friend and I began doing Biggest Loser workouts to a DVD she has last week. The low intensity workout is KICKING MY BUTT! I thought I was "in shape." Apparently I was very wrong. This week I have also been using my Wii Fit a lot more in order to keep moving.
I plan to begin the Couch to 5K program on March 1st, with hopes that I can run (jog) in a 5K this summer. Until then, I need to keep moving. A local gym is running a special to get a free month long membership. I'm considering checking it out, but I just have to stick to my guns and make sure there is no fine print that will commit me to a long-term membership.
So, now I'm off to get moving and to keep cookies and chips out of my mouth! :)
