Getting into Shape: End of Week 16

Bad news, old things. Last week was my last Weight Watchers meeting at work. We couldn’t get enough people to sign up again to make the meeting fly. So, right now I’m debating whether I want to commit to an out of work meeting, or just continue this on my own. I am pretty undecided at this point, but I am not rushing any decision at this point.

Last week looks like this:

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 2-11-14: 206.6
Total: 17.2 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 2-11-14: 209.6 (an overall gain of .2 for the week)
Total: 14.6 pounds LOST

What this means: things are slowing down. Again, I’ve really kicked up the exercise, so muscle versus fat. Also, I’ve lost 17 pounds, so you know, it probably will take more work to lose now than it did then.

Goals for next week: Figure out whether or not to keep doing the Weight Watchers thing. Extrinsic versus intrinsic! Try to make sure I’m balancing my exercise a little better, ie not doing the same thing every night. Tonight, for example, I’d best do some stretching and core work, because my legs are getting sore, tired, and crampy.

I still hope to make my goal of 200 pounds by April 1st. My average weight loss has been approximately 4 pounds a month so far, and I have 6.6 to go. Another two in February and another four in March, and I’ll be very, very close.

  1. Yes. The pills have seemingly done it. My GP wants me to talk to my allergist about retesting my allergies, just in case I’ve picked up more. He’d rather I just treated with shots and flonase.

    But hurrah! No more headaches. It seems that the eye trouble could be that I need stronger glasses now, which could also be part of the headache problem. My new pair are coming soon.

    Thanks for all your advice and input on the sinus issues. It’s always good to talk to someone who can give you good background.
