I weighed in at my Weight Watchers meeting today and am – finally – in the 170s officially (i.e. not just in my bathroom in the morning). I lost .6 pounds to end up at 179.8 pounds. I was reasonably happy with this. I’ve been on a bit of a plateau the past few weeks as my activity has been lower. First, that was due to allergies. Now, it is because my knee is bothering me. I took off from activity starting last Sunday and plan to continue that until this Monday. Then, I plan to start walking again. We’ll see how it goes then.
I was happy with my eating this past week and had a really good week, even with an unanticipated meal out with visiting family on Tuesday. This week will also have a special occasion meal as my mother is visiting and we will take her out for her 90th birthday on Sunday. I think that I’ll be able to do reasonably well at where I think we will be going. I ate out today at Chili’s after the meeting and felt OK about it. When I’m not being active, I really have to watch what I eat more carefully. So, having had a 22 point lunch, I just had a 2 point dinner. With a few snacks I’ll definitely go into my weekly points today but will have plenty left for the rest of the week.
Having officially reached the 170s, my next mini-goal is to get below 175 pounds which would put me in the overweight category. I am hoping to be there before my birthday in late April.
