Getting into Shape: End of Week 18

Da-dum! Plateau…eau…..eau….eau…


Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 2-18-14: 206.1 (a gain of .6)
Total: 17.7 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 2-11-14: 210.4 (the same)
Total: 13.6 pounds

What’s going on: Honestly, a lot of the first 17ish pounds I’ve gotten for free, without trying hard, and I strongly suspect that it has been my thyroid medication helping. Yes, I have cut back on my food and upped the exercise, but I also come in over my weight watchers points pretty steadily, and have still been losing weight, until this month, where I’ve been more or less hovering around the same weight.

Mission: Cut back to the points I can have. Otherwise, I suspect this is as far as I can get. That’s not so bad. I have twenty-nine points a day and a pool of 47 other points to spend as I will. Plus, I eat what I exercise. So, I should be able to do this. I just need to do this.

Will this be made any easier now that I have cut all the reflux vice foods out of my diet? Yes. I no longer have coffee, tea, caffeine, soda, chocolate, booze, fried food. So, there’s that.

Exercise is going well. I’m not stretching enough, though, and I’m falling into the earn it so you can eat it trap. So I’ve got to get better about stretching more beyond my 3 tai chi sessions a week

Hoping to report a loss here next week.
