Getting in Shape: End of Week 19

This week’s statistics:

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 2-18-14: 205.5 (a loss of .6)
Total: 18.3 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 2-11-14: 209.2 (a loss of 1.2)
Total: 14.8 pounds

So…it’s going down a bit. The lowest Wii weight this week was 204.4, which is the lowest I’ve been since 2010. (Once I hit 200, then I’m moving in 2007 territory). But mostly I’m skirting around 205.5, give or take a pound.

While I didn’t come in at exact points last week, I did a pretty good job staying close. I’m really working it this week. My thinking is to make sure my snack food is smaller and healthier, and eaten only when I need it (which is pretty much what I’m doing right now). I’m also going to make a concerted effort to keep more accessible veggies around the house.

The culprit in my life continues to be eating out. We eat out a lot. We often leave late from town, or don’t have a lot of zip. Actually, eating at home is quite a treat for us! Ironically, since I am now attending my Weight Watchers meeting after school, it’s another day I eat out.

People lose weight when they eat out. It’s a matter of what you eat, and how much. So, it’s not as big a deal as it seems. It’s harder to get variety, though, in veggies and fruits.

I’d like to make 201 by the end of this month.

  1. Ah, plateaus. How I hate them. Keep at it! Dunno if I’ve asked this before, but have you tried packing bento box lunches? They’re a nifty way to control portion size.
