Again the important thing is to just keeping doing every day what needs to be done. One day at a time.
The blog started by recording my weight on May 31st at 390.2 lbs. The last four weeks resulted in an 8.0 lb loss or an average of -2.0 lbs per week. You may notice the total loss is -28.2 lbs. That is the amount since I first went back to WW last year. But I wasn’t being consistent and I wasn’t exercising. I realized that I wasn’t using all the tools available to me to make a real change in my health.
For food the key for me is to write it all down and keep good records. Remember again, Weight Watchers is the method I have chosen to eat healthier. WW allows me to eat whatever I want as long as I write it down and stay inside my allotted points. Too complicated, well use the link on my web page and check out Weight Watchers.
Last week I went over my daily allotment one time. Michele and I had a fantastic dinner with friends visiting from out of town. That night caused me to use more points than my daily allotment. However, I had looked at the restaurant’s menu in advance online. That helped me make better choices as to what I ate and for sure better choices regarding volume. I even had a couple of glasses of wine. I couldn’t eat that way every day and still lose weight. But one meal in two weeks gave me some freedom and I did not feel like I was imposing my “Diet” on our friends.
Remember, this is for the rest of my life, one day at a time.
NOTE: I still intend to highlight some wonderful recipes and photos of healthy meals we have experienced. Proof you can enjoy a wonderful meal and eat healthy. I will try to have some of them up later this week.
