Weigh In - Week 2

This has not been a perfect week.  I've gone over my points a couple times.  I didn't get as much exercise as I'd planned.  But I stuck with it and didn't go crazy.  I went to a ladies retreat and so had to guess at the point values of what I was eating.  It's possible I over estimated.  And for that I'm glad.

So would you like to know what I weighed this morning?  Well, I'm going to tell you, even if you don't.


That's down 1.9 lbs.

I'm sorry to my friends that don't even eat all their flex points and struggle to lose even a couple ounces.  I know my weight loss will slow down.  But I did jog a total of almost 10K this week.  That might have helped.  And I'm pretty sure my body really wants this weight off.

And if I've learned one thing, it's that weight loss isn't always pretty.  And we can't always predict it.  Also?  I tend to be able to to eat more that WW's allows me.  Perhaps it's the 50 billion stairs in my house that I'm up and down many, many times per day.  Or the 30lb child that insists I carry her almost everywhere.  Or still being 30lbs or so above my goal.

I dunno.  But what I DO know is that I am so glad to have a fresh week and 35 fresh flex points.  I can promise you that I won't be eating them all in the next couple of days because I really don't like being without flex points.

The best news of all is that tonight is Brian's last shift, so he'll be home as of tomorrow for 4 days and then will have a couple 8 hour training days before he goes back to his 12's.  That means help around here and some extra accountability for me.  (Did I tell you he's back on WW's too?)  I can hardly wait... I miss my husband.

2.9lbs til I hit my new 5%.

See you in a couple weeks 5%.


  1. Oh my dear, you do NOT have to apologize!! I'm sorry I complained to you last week. You should be nothing but PROUD to post that loss. You're doing so awesome. I can't believe you went to a ladies' retreat and still lost weight - that is a huge feat in itself! It won't be long and your small clothes will be fitting again - woohoo!! Keep it up.

  2. You are doing great! I fell off the wagon but will be hitting it hard again on Monday. I've decided to cancel my WW membership and do it on my own. However, that money was better served by joining my local gym so I can get my booty moving. So it all starts Monday! Blessings!

  3. Congrats on your weight loss!
