Weigh In Wednesday: June 10

Height: 5'7.5''
SW: 224.4
May 29: 216.0 (+1.6)
June 5: 217.0 (+1.0)

Total Loss: 7.4

Woof! Since joining Weight Watchers this is my first time with two gains in a row. This is definitely not the direction I would like to be moving in.

I'll just be honest with you guys, I've still be slacking on tracking my food and really trying to meal plan for the week ahead. The Weight Watchers app reminds me to track but when I'm eating crap and a lot of it it's much easier to avoid tracking it. Tracking my food does it's job, it makes me think about what I'm eating and evaluate my choices. But when I'm off the program it's not fun to track that to have proof that I've messed up. But I know on days when I don't track or only track a meal or two that I went off the program and quit caring. I've been tracking the last few days even if my food choices haven't been the best, so we'll see where that gets me. Next week will be better once I actually have some good food to eat in my fridge.

Today I attended my second Body Pump class of the week. I've been going to Body Pump once a week for a while and have thought about adding a second class but never pulled the trigger on it. Without someone to go with it was always easier to not go to a second class because no one was expecting me. It's an excuse for sure, I'll admit it. And I'll even admit that the only reason I went twice this week is because I had people to go with me each time. The plan is for it to continue to be that way so I'm going to keep on this twice a week Pump regimen. And even if one of my Pump buddies can't I'm going to do my best to go it alone. No reason not to, right?

Group fitness classes seem to be my jam because since trying Pump for the first time I've been the most consistent than I've ever been with workouts. So even though I've slipped up on the monthly goals again this month one thing I want to do before the end of the month is try a RPM class. And I'm going to have to overcome my fear of trying new things alone because neither of my Pump buddies are interested in a cycling class. Wish me luck and that I survive the first one!

Until next time friends!

Short and Sweet

Real quick I want to check in because its been a while again.

I realized tonight that I have been blogging since 2009 (maybe even 2008)! No matter how many breaks I have taken from blogging I have never walked away from it completely. And now that I have a new blog design in the works I'm feeling excited about blogging once again! Be sure to check out Erin if you're looking for a new blog design, a button, or even invites! The girl does amazing work.

Now it's time to get down to business...weigh in business.

Height: 5'7.5''
SW: 224.4
May 15: 214.6
May 22: 214.4 (-.2) 10 pounds lost!
May 29: 216.0 (+1.6)

Total Loss: 8.4

That May 22nd weigh in was a big one for me. Over all of the years that I've been trying to lose weight I have never lost 10 pounds! It was exciting to be able to say that I had lost 10 pounds since I joined Weight Watchers. Even though I gained the next week I'm sure I will get back down to that 10 pounds lost mark again and move on to the next milestone.
