Week 2 is down!
I figured I would report on them so that I can be held accountable. Kind of like training recaps when leading up to a big race.
I can honestly say that for the most part I am eating the same as I was prior to rejoining WW. The 2 biggest changes are that I have been even more cognizant of portion sizes and am replacing snacks with more veggies than fruits. I love not calculating fruit/veggie point values (I was calorie counting them, ugh).
I am also not snacking as much at night anymore. And have replaced my 4 + large coffees a day with a lot more green and herbal tea. I do tend to still back load my calories. I like to make sure I “save” for the night (in general though I am not that hungry in the morning ever a quest bar pretty much does it, I am not making myself go hungry) in case I get snacky but I don’t just eat because I have the points left so there have been nights with 1 or 2 remaining.
Some days I eat activity points some I don’t. I cashed in on my weeklies my first week but only used I think 15 last week - because, wine.
Which is good because after this weeks weigh in, I went down a points plus value to 27. Insert crying sad face.
Which obviously means that I had another loss!
Weeks weight loss = 2.2 lbs
Total loss to date = 6 lbs
I wasn’t expecting more than a pound loss but I will take it.
I should also note it has been a really rough week in terms of the IBD – I seem to have taken a step back this week which hasn’t been too fun and has curbed my desire to eat as well as effected my workouts since it’s been a struggle. So there’s that.
I know it’s not all about weight but I am happy that I am losing – in general these past few weeks as I am being more mindful I have noticed my pants are starting to fit better and less bloated than before (also helpful that I am getting the IBD treated now).
Happy to be back on WW I sang its praises previously when I lost about 30lbs on it – it works and teaches you about balance. Want to splurge, go ahead just balance it out. And isn’t that what it is all about?
Until next week!
Wooo! Six lbs down! That's awesome :) Not so awesome is the IBD... sorry to hear that. Hoping it improves soon!ReplyDelete
