Finally, I got another 5 pound loss star at Weight Watchers. I ended up having a terrific weigh in. I lost 1.4 pounds to get to 151.8 pounds.
I know, I know, some people aren’t happy with anything less than a 2 pound loss, but this is a terrific loss for me, particularly so close to goal. I was just ecstatic. I’m only 3.8 pounds away from not having to pay to attend to Weight Watchers meetings (5.8 to goal).
What I was happy about was that I had the week not start out that great, but managed to come up with a plan for the rest of the week. Last Saturday was a family occasion and we ate out. I ate over 1900 calories (53 points) for the day. Then, Sunday, we went out again. This was a more ordinary eating out, but I barely had a deficit for that day. When Monday morning rolled around I had no calorie deficit for the weekend and was in the hole by 500 calories. I needed to get back to a deficit and I wanted to do well enough that I hoped I could get at least below my previous low of 153 pounds.
First, I planned to eat toward the minimum for the rest of the week. I really worked hard on the fruits and vegetables to eat foods that were lower calorie. Then, I really worked on exercise. I really turned up the volume of exercise and walked a lot, both outside and on the treadmill. Friday, it was raining outside and I wanted to be careful with my knee not to walk too many days in a row, so I used the exercise bike. So, I was really happy to get up this morning and see that was going to have such a great loss this week.I plan to try to follow a similar exercise plan this week, but spread my calories out more evenly over the week in terms of eating.
