OK, after 1 week I've lost 5 pounds! Very typical for me to loosing that much the first week. The most I ever lost after 1 week of WW was 11 pounds, but that was over the summer when I was still nursing and exercising about an hour to hour and half a day.
I'm shooting for a 2.5 to 3 pound loss per week. If I can at least hang around the 2 to 2.5 pound loss a week I would be ecstatic. If I loose 2.5 pounds a week I would be at my goal just in time for our 6 year wedding anniversary. Also it would be about the time we would open our pool for the summer. *keep focused, keep focused*
I did so good with my eating this week and did not go over my points. I did not start working out until Saturday though because I was still getting over a sinus infection....well and you know what happens when you exercise with that stuff ;-)
Something I tried a couple times this week was eating more for lunch and less for dinner. I have read this many times with other diet plans and it makes a lot of sense. What you eat earlier in the day you have more time to burn off. I also found that I am not starving by dinner and I fill more fulfilled when eating a smaller amount. I am going to try to continue doing this the best I can this week and see how it goes.
I started back running with the Couch to 5k program on Saturday. Since it's been about 6 weeks since I've (but much longer since I've ran 3 miles) I started off on week 3 and did pretty good.
This morning I finally used my "Your Shape" game/workout. Wow, I totally underestimated how tough it could be!! Such an awesome program and I really look forward to using it. It automatically has me set up for 5 days a week to workout. I really wasn't wanting to do 5 days a week, maybe just 2 since I run 3 days and wanted to continue doing the 30 Day Shred for 2 days as well. But, what the heck!! I'm trying to get this weight off right??
I've also thought a little ahead to when I reach my goal weight. It's so important to me to keep the weight off when I get there and not slide back into old habits. I'm thinking of doing a bi-weekly or monthly post on a challenge to work on for that period of time. Maybe a food and fitness challenge. I have plenty of time to think about that.
Here's to another great week ahead and I'm excited for the next two weeks as I settle into the "real weight loss". My husband's birthday is Sunday (yes, Valentine's Day) and I will be making him a cake. I'm thinking I may not be eating of it though....
