After a gain last week (I think mostly water retention), I weighed in at 147.4 pounds this week, down .8 pounds. This puts me back to within 2 pounds of my goal weight which is what I am shooting for during this period of just working on maintenance.
I did go to my meeting and got my umbrella charm, which I really wanted. Yes, I like the charms.
And this is the charm on my Weight Watchers key ring.
At one time I wanted to sue the key ring as my actual key ring, but ring part kept separating from the bar at the top (which has WW on it in the picture). I had at least 3 of them break before I simply gave it up. So the charms live on the ring in my desk drawer. I’ve thought about getting an actual bracelet or maybe a necklace to wear them on.
Anyway, things are going well now. I went to personal training today. It was really hot in the Y today and I got easily exhausted. I think they must have turned up the thermostat because kids went back to school so the Y had a lot fewer people in it than it had last week. It was hot enough to just be intolerable to me. So, we’ll see if it is better Wednesday. If it isn’t going to get better, then I’ll have to find somewhere else to go.
I don’t have to weigh again until the first time I attend in September. Now that I got my charm, I really don’t think I have to go to every meeting any more. In fact, now is probably the best time to take a bit of break from Weight Watchers’ meetings. They will probably have a winter charm similar to the summer one (attend 10 out of 12 weeks) so I will want to go for that. And, there will be the new program coming out in December and I’ll certainly want to find out about that. So, I’m thinking that during September I probably won’t go to more than 1 or 2 meetings.
I’m thinking right now that I’m going to just work on maintenance during September and then will try to start slowly losing a bit more in October. I am mostly focused on working on body composition right now. I think I’ll probably end up about 135 or so in weight, but not really sure. We’ll see.
