My Weight Loss Journey

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 7

I only started this blog last week so I’m missing weeks 1 to 6, but I plan to provide an update every Monday, which is my weigh in day. Blogging is part of my incentive to keep myself accountable, and on track to reach my goals.

Last week I had an unusual week where I lost over 4 pounds, so I was prepared for little to no loss this week (this is not my first time doing this after all), and I was correct in my thinking. I was only down .2 pounds this morning when I did my weekly weigh in, but even that little bit made me happy!

One of the challenges I’m facing is to stay excited about making good, healthy choices for meals and snacks. To help keep myself on track I’ve been looking for new recipes, trying new ways to cook things, and rediscovering my love of cooking. Shortly after starting Weight Watchers I went through my cupboards, and then went out and purchased some good, quality oils and vinegars, some of which I’ve never used before. I’ve also been trying some new foods that I haven’t cooked with, or eaten before.

I hope that as time goes on, I can come up with some recipes to share here. In the meantime, I’ll be trying new things, and keeping myself on track.

  1. Congrats on last week! I love those unusual weeks. And you’re right – any amount of loss is a great week! I used to be very disappointed when there would be no change from the previous week but then I thought – NO GAIN is just as good as any amount of loss! I love the idea of looking for new recipes! I can’t wait to see what you find! I actually didn’t have as good of a week – I think I felt too overconfident in with thinking I’ll just have a little bit of this and that with the Easter holiday and I gained back 1.5 pounds. It’s okay this is a new week and today is a new day to make better choices!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I do love those unusual weeks! I’m trying to keep myself positive, even when I have a slow week. I keep trying to focus on short term goals because if I think about the main goal, it’s a bit overwhelming. As for your bad week, you’ll get back on track. I know what you mean though, it’s easy to lose track of the little bits you have here and there. I have to track everything I eat or it sneaks up on me.

      1. You are so right! I need to keep a journal. I bet if I have to right it down I’ll think twice before eating it. One thing I do need to do is get outside and exercise more, I don’t like “working out” but I do like walking and gardening and activities like that. ๐Ÿ˜€
