Week Two

29th March 2012

Just weighed myself this morning – here’s how I did using the gems:

Woo.

What did I do differently this week? I cut out Starbucks, Diet Coke, bread, pasta, and junk. I’ve also been drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day.

I’ve been eating lean proteins, tons of veggies and salads with 1tbsp olive oil & vinegar as dressing, low GI fruits like apples and berries, and Greek Yogurt.

It’s working and I’m spreading out my meals so I’m not hungry. The key really is to eat protein with every meal and snack.

The hardest part really has been cutting out the Starbucks trips and the Diet Cokes. However, after watching Hungry for Change online, I just can’t drink another Diet Coke – I like my brain cells too much.

I highly encourage you to watch it – it’s online for free until the 31st of this month (Saturday) – just enter your name and email and you can watch the movie here: http://www.hungryforchange.tv/

This week, I’m determined to start working out!

Week Two:

Weight LOST this week: 6.5

Weight Lost to date:  9

Weight left to Lose: 91

Weight Watchers Point Plus – Week Two

17th January 2011

Let me tell you about Week Two.

Meh.

Not a shocker, but week two for me is ALWAYS a downer. No matter how much I succeed during week one, and I’m pretty sure week one can be considered a success, I usually suck at week two. Don’t get me wrong, I followed the plan for the most part, although I had a couple of indiscretions (hello vanilla bean scone and french fries – I blame my girly sleepover with my friend, Sarah). But it’s the week where I always realize the size of the mountain that I need to climb to get to the end, because no matter how great I do during week one, week two will always be a smaller number, in terms of a weight loss.

The Biggest Loser, this is not.

This is where the whole mental thing really comes in for me. I tell myself that I can’t do it, because I have SO MUCH WEIGHT to lose. The negative talk in my head is non-stop and really kind of pathetic. I kick myself when I’m down at every turn. I wish I only had to lose 15-20lbs so I wouldn’t feel so damned overwhelmed every time I think about it. I’m really trying to think positive, but I’m kind of a weight loss failure, if you haven’t noticed. I totally suck at it, because mentally, I just tell myself it can’t happen.

Another thing that ALWAYS hurts my chances – a certain individual who feels the need to ask me a million questions, each and every day, about what I’m eating, did I exercise and how much weight have I lost so far. They mean well, but it’s brutal on my motivation, and killer on the self-esteem.

Things I did right:

  • Stayed on plan for the most part

Things I did wrong:

  • Haven’t started exercising – although I did purchase a treadmill, I didn’t actually get it home until the night before my husband left on his business trip. It is still in the box, and will be assembled TONIGHT.
  • Made some bad food choices as mentioned above.

What did I lose:

Weighed in this morning, and was thankful and sort of surprised to find out that I’m down another two pounds – praying works!

Total Weight Loss:

8.5 lbs
