Weight Loss Check In

I have officially completed my first week on Weight Watchers and I think I did pretty well.  I went to an earlier meeting because it was the only time that would work with my schedule.

I lost 2.8 pounds!  Since my first weigh-in was a Sunday and I weighed on a Friday, I am sure my weight is actually quite a bit different.

Here are my stats:

Starting weight:  221 pounds
Loss:  -2.8
Current weight:  218.2

What worked for me this week:  I tracked like crazy.  I also drank a ton of water.  When I was hungry for a snack, I tried filling up on fresh fruit.  As a result, I needed to buy more fruit.  I stocked up on oranges, apples, pineapple, blueberries, grapes and peaches.

What was my biggest challenge:  Since Jason was gone for the long weekend, I had to take care of both boys on my own.  This didn't give me a lot of time to meal plan, track or update.  My phone isn't compatible with the Weight Watchers site.  As a result, I decided to not track and just eat as healthy as possible.  While I didn't do awesome at this, I am now back to tracking and hope that the scale has a good number for me on Sunday.

I cooked some great meals this past week.  I will update my blog post for a Week's Worth of Dinners sometime soon.  I want to be able to share some tasty and healthful recipes with my readers.

Goals for this week:  Continue to cook healthy meals, keep up on my water intake, and only use 20 of my Flex Points (since I didn't track this weekend, I want to make sure I don't overeat the rest of the week).
