I went to my Weight Watchers this meeting and weighed in even though I don’t have to weigh in again until August. I did this because I knew I would see this:
At long last, a star for losing another 5 pounds, my last one before I get to goal. I weighed in at 147 pounds, for a loss of .8 pounds for the week. The big thing though was that this puts my total loss at 60.4 pounds. I have one more pound to go to get to my goal weight of 146 at Weight Watchers. Actually, at home I was at 146.4 pounds so it is getting super close. Loss is just awfully slow now as I get close to goal.
I had a good week from an eating standpoint, since I had a stomach virus much of the week and wasn’t hungry. There was that one day I was tempted to have Subway because I felt sorry for myself but it would have put me way over where I wanted to be for that day, so I decided not to do it.
The negative of the stomach virus was that I had a total of 38 minutes of exercise this week. I usually average about 300 minutes, but I want to be careful. Years ago, I had a negative pattern where I would get sick, have to quit exercising while sick, went back too soon, got sick again, and eventually got totally derailed. This time I’m being really careful so I don’t do too much too soon. Probably will feel like doing my regular exercise on Sunday. We’ll see.
Despite the low calorie burn due to the low activity, I had an OK calorie deficit since I didn’t eat as much as usual. Once I realized I was going to hit my 60 pounds lost, I decided to actually weigh in this month.
I do have to weigh in at my first meeting in August. That could be next Saturday, but I may weigh in earlier in the week and then wait to weigh in until the following week. Haven’t decided yet. My main goal for August is to lose 1 more pound to get to 146 finally.
