Weekly Weigh In

I usually don't do my weekly weigh in posts until later in the week even though my weigh in day is always on Monday mornings. This week though I knew I needed to post early so I can come back and look at it. I gained another 2 lbs this week!!!! And unlike last week when I gained a pound and had no idea why; this week I know exactly why. I'm actually surprised that 2 lbs is all that I gained. I'm not making excuses for myself but this week has been a horrible week for me. I've just had a lot of not so great things going on and food is a way for me to deal with things. I ate Mexican 3 times this week including 2 nights in a row. Horrible! I also had sushi and Japanese, turkey with all the trimmings (it was for my grandma's birthday party), Dairy Queen fruit smoothies twice (thanks to my friend that is also on WW, lol), and much more that I was not supposed to eat. Also, I only walked 5 miles this week; total. Last week there were several days that I walked 5 miles each day.

So here are my mini-goals for this week:

* exercise 5 out of 7 days this week
* have a loss when I weigh in next Monday (no matter how little it is, I am tired of typing a + sign)
* try at least one new Weight Watchers recipe
*continue to lift weights (I've only been doing arms so far)

I hope that everyone else is doing much better with their weight loss goals than I am. I would love to hear some of your motivations.

I had Mexican this weekend and it's tough to eat without lots of calories!

I skipped the chips pre-meal (SO tough to do), and split a taco/refried beans/spanish rice meal with my sister. If the taco only has meat and cheese (and lettuce if you want) and you eat about a third each of rice and beans, it's only about 400 calories. Not sure how that translates into WW.

Also, Sonic has a medium diet cherry limeade for only 17 calories! Yummy treat, no guilt!

Good luck this week - you can do it!

Not all weeks are good weeks! I just think it's fantastic that you're willing to put yourself out there like this and even post what you've eaten.

Those goals sound completely plausible. Random question: have you done the 30 Day Shred? I've been reading tons of stuff about it online and was just curious :-)

Here's to an awesome week and accomplishing all your mini-goals!

Mexican can be a killer.
