Week 21 - Still down 13 pounds

Week 21 has shown no change. I do feel that I have lost inches but no change in weight this week. Not good....not bad....not discouraging. Hopefully less next week!

Week 20 and Moving in the Right Direction!

Today I weighed in and was very pleased. I noticed that I have been eating less and leaving more on my plate this week. My exercise only consisted of one day walking as my walking partner has been sick but all in all I did well.

Drum roll please...........I have FINALLY surpassed the original 10 lbs I had lost since starting this 20 weeks ago and then falling off the wagon and putting some back on.

This week I am down 3.5 pounds for a total of 12.5 lost!

Week 19...missed .......Week 18 - I'm a Loser!

Week 18 I did not get time to report in. I stayed the same that week.

Week 19 - I am down 2 pound making it 9.5 pounds lost so far. .5 pounds away from being the lowest I've been since starting this mission. .5 is promissing as I had fallen off the wagon for a while but lately it seems to be easier to get my head back in the game and being that close now will give me a goal to break.

Losing weight is a mental game. My head has to be in it in order to lose. I also know that the only way I can lose is through a lifestyle change such as Weight Watchers and not through one fad diet after another. I have to be able to eat whatever I want but know my limits and control portions.

My goal for this week is to start exercising again. I have not done any exercising in a while and today my boss and I are going to start to walk again after work. We have had one excuse after the other.....heat....rain, etc. I miss it and I noticed that when I was walking, it was much easier to bend, get on the floor with my grandson, etc. so I have to do it. I also started writing down what I eat so hopefully I can make a full week of writing. I've been trying to do it over the past several weeks but don't last more than 2 or 3 days.

I also continue to love my new drink container and this has probably helped me to lose weight this week as I always carry it with me and it stays cold. Here's a picture. It is marked with ounces and milliliters, has a pop up straw, doesn't leak and has a convenient metal clip to clip to my purse or whatever.

Well...until next week!
