As I don’t get weighed at Weight Watchers until Monday evening, all I can do today is repeat the shocking and depressing amount that registered on their scale last week when I checked in: 179.8 pounds. What’s truly sad is that this is 1.8 pounds more than I weighed at the end of 2008, before I lost 30 pounds in 2009.
Anyway, it’s been a good week, eating wise. The new points plan is very easy to follow, and I’ve eaten a wide variety of good, healthy food. While I thought I had been eating smaller servings, I now know I was still eating way too much.
If I could describe the past week in one word it would be: FRUIT! Most fruit is now zero points, and I have been having fruit with each meal and as snacks. I realized this week that while I have always bought fruit, it was for everyone else, so I wasn’t eating it. This week I bought and have eaten fruits that I like: strawberries, blueberries, melon and pineapple, and have enjoyed a fruit salad almost every day.
This weekend’s weather is supposed to be gorgeous, with temperatures climbing into the 80s. I have been out on walks twice this past week, but Mr. Losing It and I are looking forward to walking together this weekend, and I’ll walk to and back from the meeting on Monday night as well. I’m not expecting any great loss for my first week, but hopefully will be off to a good start.
