Well, this was the week that wasn't. Wasn't good for exercising (I did none. I'm still coughing and using that as an excuse), wasn't good for eating (I had 2 pepsis, gooey chocolate/coconut bars and chocolate chip cookies), wasn't good for losing weight (I only lost .2 lb this week). But, it WAS a week that I did log everything I ate, stayed within my points for the week and DID lose some weight. This week I'm determined to stop making excuses and get my butt on the treadmill at least! It's a journey, not a race!!!

Well, it's been an ok week. I'm still fighting off this cold that has been hanging on so I didn't work out this week. WW is going good. I'm still constantly having to remind myself that it's ok to lose this slowly. Every pound is one closer to my goal and I lost 1.8 lbs this week. Repeating my mantra...It's a journey, not a race...

Well, it was an interesting week. Sunday night I started getting a sore throat which turned into me being sick for the WHOLE week! All I did all week was sit/lay around reading/watching TV/computer. So, so much for my big plans to really work out this week. I did keep up with WW and even with no exercise I managed to lose 2.2 lbs. I have to say, with all my hesitation about starting it, I really am happy to be doing it. It's so easy to figure out and enter the points and now that all fruit has no points, it makes it even easier. I did have a serious talk with myself about unrealistic expectations. I, of course, want to lose this weight fast. But, I'm trying to remember that no matter how little I lose or how slowly it comes off, I'm still going to weigh less than now. My new motto: It's a journey, not a race!

Well, I finally feel like maybe I'm on the right track! I did join WW online, started Monday and by Sunday am I had lost 3.6 lbs. I really like doing it online because it's so easy to just input the information and I don't have to go to meetings. I did intervals on the treadmill twice this week which was ok but not great. Hopefully next week I'll do better with working out. So, I actually feel hopeful and I'm trying really hard not to have unrealistic expectations about the amount I will lose each week. I'm trying to look at it as a journey, not a race!
