Getting in Shape: End of Week 25

This week looks to allow for some more posts than last week. Well, we can hope anyway. Here’s the weigh in on the weight loss from last week.

Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.)
Wii Weight on 4-17-14: 202.6 (a loss of 2.4, and also my weight today!)
Total: 21.2 pounds LOST

Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 3-25-14: 207.6 (the same)
Total: 16.4 pounds

New dog tricks: This weekend we had an Easter brunch, and I planned for it. I did not plan for my Red Lobster binge on Saturday, but I seem to be okay so far. I have done A LOT of exercise, so maybe that’s countermanded it. I think we’ll know more tomorrow.

I’m trying to eat small snacks between the major meals to keep the metabolism going, and I’m shutting food down no later than 7.

Unhappiness: In spite of my reflux strategies, I’ve been more gassy this last week. Could it be…STRESS? It could. I’m also keeping an eye on what I eat before I have an attack. Today, it seems awfully hard to believe it could be oatmeal and blueberries…but there you go.

The Future: I want to be below 200 for Wiscon. That gives me 5 weeks to loose 2.6 pounds, and not gain any more weight. Let’s see what happens.

I need new clothes. Just got back into some 14s from the past, and summer will be a good time to buy some transition pieces.

  1. Hi! Congratulations on progress towards your goals. 🙂

    I know we have some differences in dietary sensitivities, but oatmeal is certainly a big problem for my gut issues. I have to be moderate about dietary fiber in general, which is really super annoying, and is a food trigger for my IBS that’s not often mentioned.

    Good luck with everything!
