Default What I Ate - Wk of 1/20 - 1/26

Just thought I'd quickly start a new thread for the new week. Hope no one else duplicates it unknowingly.

Anyone's welcome to post. Some people count points, and some people (like me) just journal.

Monday

Breakfast
Raisin Bran with skim milk
Morning Star breakfast patty
1/2 grapefruit with a sprinkling of sugar

Lunch
Hummus & feta sandwich, on a pita roll, with lots of veggies
Serving of Veggie Booty
Serving of peanuts

Snack
Dannon Fit 'n Light Yogurt

Dinner
Shrimp Creole over rice
Healthy Temptation mini ice cream sandwich

Exercise
18 minutes of stair climbing (30 flights)

Woo! I got to add exercise to my list for the first time. It almost didn't happen. After setting my alarm early, I remembered my exercycle had no batteries. Then I couldn't walk, because it was raining. I decided to climb stairs in the building's stairwell -- down 5, and up 5. It kicked my butt!

Oh. And a coworker is starting Weight Watchers -- one of those elusive male WWers. He went to his first meeting last weekend. He also found one with a male leader. The program didn't work for me -- I do much better just on my own -- but I hope it helps him at least starting out. I estimate he's about 300 pounds, maybe 325, but at least somewhat active. He's a pretty big guy, nonetheless. It's kinda fun watching him get excited about tradeoffs he's learned when counting points, and having someone to banter about 'low point snacks' (I still remember the lingo!) with.

Lizzard- I added up the points for what you ate yesterday, and you had approximately 23 pts. What is your daily pts. range? Maybe you need to eat a few more points? Or if you're in the lowest pt. range, maybe you need to eat a few less points? Anyway, Welcome! Hopefully by journaling here, you'll find a pattern!

Lauren: Congrats on conquering bowling night! that is amazing. You must feel so good.

Scuttle: Good job on the stairs. Glad to hear you found a "diet buddy" at work. It makes it much easier.

Lizzard: Welcome! Lauren added up your WW points and got 23. If your stats are correct, you should be eating 20-25 points a day (for weights 150-175). So, it sounds like you are on target. Also, fruit veggies and h2o are so important, along with exercise, but it sounds like you have all of that covered to. So......GREAT JOB! Don't worry too much about the scale, it will catch up to what you are accomplishing. Give it a little time: You are doing SUPER and deserve a big loss!

Cowtail = stick of caramel with cream in the middle

Lizzard- You know, I was just taking a look again at your journal. I wonder if all the exercise has anything to do with it? Sometimes it takes a week or so to catch up with you. Bailey's right, the scale with catch up! I wonder if maybe you should alternate days of aerobic and strength training? Maybe just do 10 minutes of aerobic to warm up on the days you do strength training? I'm certainly no expert, just trying to help!
