I started Weight Watchers Online again on May 10th right after we returned from our cruise since I will be Catwoman at Comicpalooza this coming weekend. Well, Catwoman may just be a tiny bit chubbier than last year since an 8 pound loss isn’t going to happen. It’s okay. 😉
1 Week Results
On May 10th, I weighed in at 168 pounds. I was aiming for 160 pounds by May 23rd.
On May 17th, I weighed in at 165 pounds. This morning, May 19th, I’m at 164.6 pounds. That’s an overall loss of 3.4 pounds in 9 days. Even though I was crossing my fingers for being down 6 pounds by now, I’m super happy and will be continuing to tackle my eating habits even after this weekend.
I’ve been sticking to my main goal of eating 26 points (Weight Watcher’s Points Plus program) of food a day pretty well. I had a 35 point Friday and Saturday, but overall, I’m in control and have been feeling great! The extra fruits and vegetables are delicious and have been cutting down on my cravings for pure carbs. Animal crackers have been helping a lot for my sweet cravings too since they are only 3 points for 16 crackers.
My main fruits lately have been bananas, cantaloupe, and strawberries. My vegetables of choice have been broccoli, carrots, and salads (greens like lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, and a roasted tomato vinaigrette). Eggland’s Best Eggs were left after a potluck and I’ve been taking advantage of the fact that they are 1 point per egg. And my other main proteins have been beef filets, chicken boobs, and fresh salmon. I bought some Tilapia filets today for the rest of the week and we’re having turkey hot dogs tonight.
Given that I’m at 164.6 pounds right now, my short-term goal is to reach 155 pounds by the end of June 2015. That means losing around 1.5 pounds per week. Then I will aim to hit 150 pounds by the end of July 2015 and successfully maintain it for the rest of the year. I want to stay in the 145-155 range for the rest of my foreseeable future since that is where I always have the most energy.
