I just wanted to check in to let you all know how I’m doing. Today I’ve been on WW for exactly one week. For those of you who don’t know, I changed my weigh in day to Sunday, just because it’s the beginning of a new week and I can weigh in right before church. I’m recording my weigh ins on video, so normally someone will be here to do the recording and I will be showered, with hair and make up done…a plus for YOU.
Well, with all the excitement this week (my first grand daughter was born Sunday) and through eating on the run and at the hospital I managed to keep track of my points and to stay within my daily allotment, or at least not use all of my weekly extra points…yet. Ha. No, but now that Remmy’s home, I’ll definitely be able to control what I eat more and stay within my daily allowed without using the extra points.
I have made some healthier choices which I’m quite proud of, like eating apples and oranges instead of chips. Why do I love chips so much? Why oh why?!? I did have some kettle cooked potato chips yesterday, but I did count out the serving (3 points for 18 chips). I am going to have some popcorn tonight as a snack instead and will try to choose popcorn over chips from now on.
I do love eating less. Tonight I made a pot roast in the crock pot, along with some potatoes and corn. Back in the day I would eat a huge heaping chunk of meat, at least 2 potatoes smothered in butter and sour cream and, I don’t know, a ton of corn slathered in butter. Tonight I had 2 ounces of meat, 1 potato with no butter or sour cream, just pepper, and 1/2 cup of corn with 2 tsp butter. It was so good and I am so full! I had a salad for lunch and a fiber bar for breakfast, so I still have 13.5 points to use today.
Uh, need to get back on schedule with the exercise though. Will really work at doing that tomorrow, barring any unforeseen occurrences, like having to run my son to an appointment or something like that.
Well, that’s my weekly check in for this week. I’ll try to stop by periodically as I feel so lead to update and check in.
How are you doing with your weight loss goals?
