Weigh-In Week Two

Things are going very well in the world of Weight Watchers.  I love the new commercials with Jennifer Hudson.  I just think she looks great and it is rated the number one weight loss program by USA Today.  That is fantastic!  So, now that I've plugged my program, I bet you are wondering about my progress.  Alright, I won't keep you waiting any longer.  I weighed in this morning at 206, which means I have lost three pounds this week.  YEAH!!!  Because I lost a good amount last week, my points count went down.  Now I can have 32 points a day and 42 extra weekly points to use if I go over.  Four out of seven days I was able to stay within my daily points range.  The other three days that I went over, wasn't by too much.  By the end of the week I still had 36 of my 42 weekly points that I didn't use.  I have earned both my star for losing my first 5 pounds and my star for 5 additional pounds.  My next star will be for losing 5% of my body weight.  I am only 2 pounds from that goal, so I hope to have that one next week.  :)

This weeks personal goal is to add some activity into my daily routine.  I will probably start slow: maybe a brisk walk a couple of times during the week, spend a little extra time cleaning or climbing the stairs at home.  Every little bit can be tracked and traded for food points during the day.  The more activity you do, the more points you can trade for.  This week I just want to add a little, then over the next few weeks I would like to get into a regular exercise routine.

Finally, I'm sad that because I am behind in starting all this and because my husband has been working so much, I am not in any shape to walk/run the 5K for my daughter's school on Saturday.  I was really looking forward to participating in that but I just don't feel that I would do well at all since I haven't been so much as walking lately.  Maybe next year!

So it has been another successful week and I have my next goals set. 
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!

Congrats, Carrie!! Keep up the good work. Maybe you could be support staff for those participating in the run/walk...handing out water or something? I've done that before when I was injured or hadn't trained for a race. It's really fun and your sunny personality would be perfect for it!!

Setting a goal and having a plan is half the battle! Go Carrie!
