Well, WW has helped me with portion control and with making smart and healthy choices. I've been able to continue eating the foods I love and be more conscious about the kinds of foods (and how much) I eat. I was a little disappointed that I didn't see too much weight loss in the first couple weeks but sticking with it I'm now starting to see it and feel it in the clothes I wear. Yay!
So, for my third week here are my results:
Gain/Loss this week: Yay! This week I was able to see about a 1.6 lb loss! Working through my lunches most days forces me to pack light snacks throughout the day since I rarely get time to actually sit down and enjoy a meal. So, always packing my water bottle and having pre-made snacks handy have been a life saver! I've also begun making smoothies to take for my breakfast. It's an easy way to pack in fruits and veggies on the go!
Total since starting: I was a bit discouraged to not see as much of a loss but sticking with it I'm now starting to see slow progress. I'm in my third week of WW and I see that I've lost 2 lbs. To keep me motivated I think of a package of ground meat and think to myself "hey I lost 2 of those!" ;)
Positives from the week: Well, as I mentioned before, I was able to see a significant loss in weight. Even if its .2 or .6 of a pound- it's something. It's nice to know the work going into this is paying out somehow and I feel more confident in my clothes. I also was able to up some of the resistance in my arm workouts, which is amazing since I have zero upper-body strength.
Something to do better: I chose this week to do better in making time for workouts. After a long day the last thing I want to do is work out. Most nights I want
Goal for next week: The goal I chose for next week is to continue drinking more water throughout the day- especially on the weekends. But, as I was writing this it got me thinking that I should have chosen getting more sleep. It's important to get enough shut-eye so your body can recover from the day but with grading and the end of the quarter coming up...and just life in general...I haven't been getting the sleep I should.
One word: This week has been very exciting AND motivating. I've reached a place where I've seen progress and it pushes me to keep moving forward.
I look forward to reading about everyone else's progress this week and be sure to link up!!!
