Another loss - yay!

So I've been plugging away at this Weight Watchers thing for a while, and it's starting to feel like my "normal." That's not something I think I would have said about any of the other things I tried in the past. So here are the numbers for today's weigh-in:

Weight: 155.4 pounds
Pounds lost this week: -.8
Total pounds lost: 6.6 pounds
Pounds to lose: 35.4 pounds

There have been a few times where even though I have stuck to my points, I haven't made the best choices. For example, last night, Jennings and I ate grilled cheese sandwiches AND cheese fries for dinner. It was a major splurge. We even split a big chocolate chip cookie. I had some weekly points left, so it could have been much worse, but afterwards I still felt a little guilty for eating all that. I just know that if I had made a better choice along with the two days I worked out this past week, I would have made more progress.

But, it's a process. So I will learn from it and see how next week turns out. I'm really hoping I can get to my 5 % goal, which is 8 pounds lost. All I need to do is lose 1.4 pounds! That is going to motivate me this week to do better.

Bump in the road

So yesterday was another weigh-in at Weight Watchers. I was not confident that I had done very well the week before. It was just one of those times where life got in the way, I think. So here are the numbers:

Weight: 157.2 pounds
Pounds lost this week: +.2
Total pounds lost: 4.8 pounds
Pounds to lose: 37.2 pounds

So I gained back what I barely lost the week before. Not my finest performance. Also, regrettably, we made a bad choice for dinner last night and went to the Jim N' Nick's that they just opened here in Tuscaloosa. Even with eating a salad, and getting grilled fish, I still went way overboard on the points. I regret to report that those yummy little cheese biscuits are a full 6 points each! I had two of them before I looked up how much they were. So pretty much two of those biscuits is equal to the points value I should have eaten last night. C'est la vie.

I almost didn't post about this because I was so discouraged. But I realize that part of this is to keep myself accountable. So I have to write about the bad as much as the good. So there it is in black and white.

Has anyone else out there had some challenges lately with a goal you are trying to reach?
