Getting into Shape: End of Week 17

This is the week of transition to no Weight Watchers at Work. I dug deep and went to a center after school yesterday. You’ll be seeing a 0.8 pound gain, because I’m now weighing around 4 pm, and there is a 4.6 pound difference between weighing then, and weighing on my Wii at 5:30 am. So, actually, I’m doing well. Here are the stats.

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 2-18-14: 205.5
Total: 18.3 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 2-11-14: 210.4 (an overall gain of .8 for the week)
Total: 13.6 pounds LOST

So, I lost about a pound last week. Weight Watchers will start to catch on next week.

Challenges: I am still coming in over points at the end of the week. All of the exercise seems to be fending that off, but it won’t forever. I need to think strongly about ways I eat out, because an eat out can cost me about 20 points, and I do it frequently. So, gotta think about how to do it for 13 points, and I’d actually be fine. That sounds like cutting out bread, or getting more rigorous about cutting portions in half. This is a goal for next week, then.

There is a gaming convention this week, and both lunch and dinner will be out this weekend. I will need to exercise caution.

And speaking of exercising, in theory, there is no time to exercise for the next three evenings. Two days I got covered. Stepping at work. Saturday I’m just gonna have to go for a walk.

Well, we here in Cold Land salute you, and we’ll see you next week. Off to teach some wonderful conditional verbs.
