Slow and Steady Wins the Race

I have lost a bit more weight this week! WW thinks I lost four pounds, but actually I probably just lost 1.8 pounds. I was wearing boots last week, and flip flops this week, thanks to the lovely lovely spring-like weather. When I got home I weighed my boots and they clocked in at 2.2#

I'll take it!

So, on my WW booklet I have lost 5.4 pounds so far. I have the gold five pound star. It's a good feeling.

I had a good week, tracked all my points, etc.

I did NOT exercise very much this week. The mono fatigue reared it's ugly head and I had to deal with that. So, lots of "Oh, it's 3:30 pm and time to crawl into bed for a couple of hours." type of days.

But life happens and I was steady on the plan. That right there, is a good thing.

After all, it's not so much about losing weight. It's about changing habits. And those habits have gotta change for a lifetime.

Such a good way to approach it!! How are you liking the new points plus? From what I've read it sounds good...I'm considering going back!

Tyla, I LOVE the new points plus plan! I believe it truly teaches a person how to eat healthfully. I love the fact that I can grab a banana or an orange, etc. if I'm hungry between meals and it costs me NO points.

Me too on the "gotta' make this a lifestyle change" bandwagon. Not only that but exercise will build muscle offsetting your 4# LOL. Enjoy it!
