Weigh-In Wednesday : Jan. 28th




Ugh... that wasn't really the result I was hoping for but I'm not shocked by it either.  I had only tracked my points for one day this week.  I just can't seem to get in the habit of tracking.  I have the app on my phone.  Hell, it even sends me notifications every night!  

On a positive note, despite the cold temps and "The Great Blizzard of 2015, I was able to get out and go for a walk a few times earlier in the week.   Even though it never got above freezing, the sun was shining and it just felt so good to breathe in some fresh air.  I can't wait for Spring so I can get out and walk more often.  (Only 50 more days... but who's counting?)  

At tonight's meeting we talked about setting goals and how we can make them more realistic and obtainable.  I know I've already set a long-term goal of losing 18 more pounds by my birthday in May, but I thought it might be a good idea to set small weekly goals for myself. 
Thinking about my eating this past week, I decided that I want to try the Simply Filling plan to get my eating on a more healthy track.    Sure, I can stay within my points every day but having them consist of snacks, pizza and low sugar ice cream isn't going to get me to my birthday goal.   

So my leader Cathy made me a challenge, to eat and track following the Simply Filling plan for 3 out of the next 7 days and bring it to her at next Wednesday's meeting.  I can do that.  I am also going to track my points plus values for the other 4 days and bring those too.  This challenge will be all old school, I'm actually going to write it in a tracker instead of using my phone.  

It's going to be a challenge for sure, but I'm going to kick butt this week and prove I can do it!   

What's your biggest weight loss challenge?  What goals have you set for yourself?  Want to connect? I'd love to give and get support.

  1. Tina going out and walking in this weather is an accomplishment as big as major weight loss in my book so congratulations. I hear ya about the tracking points. I try to plan my day/night and track all of my points in the morning and try to stick with what I've agreed to.

    I do very well all day until I get home at 7:30p from work exhausted, starving and stressfully jumping from my work day #1 to my work day #2 (homework, prepping for tomorrow etc). I need to do a much better job having snacks/food ready for me when I get home so I don't mindlessly eat whatever's leftover in the lunchboxes.

    I think I do better when I eat a light dinner around 5p when I'm still at work (like soup). But maybe I need to eat a bigger meal then and then just like a crunchy salad when I get home. I like to stress eat crunchy foods.

    The filling foods is really a great system too (and probably more healthy in the long run since it's all whole foods and really nothing with chemicals and preservatives... that alone can bloat you and when you stop ingesting it you can lose quite a bit of weight from that alone). K off to eat a grapefruit ;D
