The challenge started last week with our first weigh in and this is where I was. I am thrilled to say that I have had a super week. Every night I walked on the treadmill for about 45 minutes at 3.5mph with a 5-6 incline. I did wonderful with my water although that really isn't a problem for me since I seem to drink tons while teaching. The veggies and fruit counts weren't too bad either although I only made all 5 maybe 3 days. Most of the time I would get 3-4 in. I did struggle with staying within my points! I am now at 20 points a day and let me tell you that it is hard to stay in that range. I have given up the 100 calorie packs and really tried to cut back, but even on really good days I am still over by 2-4 (that is counting my activity points) and on not so great days I am over by 6-7. Yuck!! Last week I didn't really start counting until Monday and figured that I probably used all my weekly allowance points from the weekend so I was disappointed in myself for not staying within the range.
Are you ready for the numbers?
Week 63 / -3lb / -43lb
So for the first week on Operation Spring Weight Off I am down 3lb! Wahoo! This puts me right on target to hit my goal weight by my b-day.
So far this week I am doing well. I am pretty much staying within my range. Saturday I was actually 1 point short as I was so involved in cleaning that I forgot to eat, yesterday I went over 7 points, but I did do walking as we shopped and more cleaning which were activity points that I didn't count. The extra points were also in my weekly allowance so as of now I am ok. Then today I used 2 WA points. I am trying to walk some more at school even if it is just around the room and have been parking further from stores to add a few more steps. I haven't walked on the treadmill, but have been so busy cleaning that I think I will be okay with activity. I am crossing my fingers for at least two pounds this week!!!
