Since my last post I:

-Went to my first WW @ work meeting.  I haven’t belonged to WW since well before the points system began.  Counting points is “interesting”.  Apparently WW really has it in for anything “bready”??!!  That made me quite grumpy.  Anyway, I loaded up on fruits and veggies at the market to take advantage of zero point fruits and veggies.  I’ve been eating less this past week, even on the weekends!  This morning the scale reflected a number I haven’t seen in many years, and I’m in a new decade to boot.  :)

-Had the 2nd weigh-in for the weight loss contest at work.  It fell four days after my first WW meeting,  I didn’t eat before the 11 am WI, and I was was wearing less clothing (no cardigan), so I had a nice loss and didn’t have to pay the gainer’s penalty fee. 

-I finally got some formal exercise.  I went to the gym yesterday and did about 20 min. on the treadmill and 15 on the recumbent bike.  Gosh was it boring.  I have about two weeks before the spring session at the park district starts and I can go back to those classes.

-Decided I don’t think the gym is working for me and will register for classes once again.  The spring session starts 3/18 and for some reason they now allow the class passport to be used starting one week before the session actually begins.  That’s 3/11, or next week!  I’m going to get a passport and also register for a kettlebell class that starts in April. 

That’s about it for me.

    That’s so great on the weight loss. You have come a long, long way and really kicked both your fast food and snack habit to the curb. You’re my new idol.

    I’m doing my best over here, but it’s hard to eat less in the winter. Especially the bread.

    Gym=boring.

    I totally hear you on the gym being boring. Now that I’m used to working out with trainers and partners, I dread the “alone” workouts.

    Good job on the loss!

    Good for you for attending your first WW meeting! I hope you like it. Counting points are a pain, but I think counting calories are worse, and you gotta’ count something…LOL. I’ve been reading on the net lately about people going “grain fee” and losing all this weight. I don’t think I could go totally garin free but I thought about cutting way back to see what happens. I think it would definitely make me feel less sluggish. The kettlebell class sounds fun, I wish they had one here. Kettlebells are supposed to burn mad calories.

    YAY for the LOSS!!!

    Definitely motivating! I lost 20 lbs with my work competition a few years ago :)
