Post-weigh-ins – Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Yesterday was the weight lost contest’s monthly weigh-in. I’ve lost 3 pounds since the last weigh-in. I’m down 10 pounds since the beginning of the contest (2/1), according to the weigh-ins. I’m quite sure I’m not a contender to win or place in this contest, but it’s been fun and motivational for me.

Today was my weekly ww w-i. Last week I had a slight gain, so I was really hoping for a loss, and I got one – a good 3.4 pound loss. πŸ™‚ I’ve reached my 5% goal. πŸ™‚ Onward to the 10% goal.

I never think I have a really good week on WW – I mostly exceed my daily points, and always have gone well over my weekly points allotment. But I do still track my eating on the SP tracker and my calorie intake is definitely less than what I was eating pre-ww, so it’s working, regardless of regularly exceeding my points.

This past week, increased activity may have played a part in my loss. I took three long dog walks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I did a circuit class and on Sunday I did a Zumba class.

I’dΒ like to bump up my exercise more consistently. I have my Kettlebell class starting soon (need to look up when!), so that’ll help.

    Laura, you are doing GREAT! πŸ˜€

    As far as wanting more consistency with your exercise, maybe you should create an exercise ticker! It really holds me accountable. I look at the calendar, figure out exactly how many times I will exercise that month (roughly 6 times a week), calculate the number of minutes I want to average, do the math, and that’s my goal. If I’m short one day, I gotta make it up somewhere. If something seriously unexpected happens to derail, (sickness, emergency, etc.)…I can change the goal number, but it’s got to be a good reason like that, not simply laziness. LOL Each month, new ticker with new goal number created. Just a thought. πŸ˜‰

    This is such an awesome update–congratulations! The key to WW is the tracking and you’d already gotten pretty good at it anyway, so I don’t think it matters too much if your over here and there. Anyhow, aren’t you supposed to get extra points for any exercise?
