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
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).
