Crystal Light Challenge Update

A couple of migraines and 2 new blog staff writing positions trumped exercise for me this week.  Darn it.  But I will pick up the pace again next week.

How did you do on your goal?

Weight Watchers Update

I joined Weight Watchers on January 4, 2011:

  • Weighed in at 176 pounds
  • Wore a Size 14/16
  • Assigned up to 252 points a week plus whatever activity points I can earn (and was told to stay above 203 no matter what).

The goal I made January 1st, 2011 was to weigh 163 or less by July 4th, 2011 and fit into a Size 12 since that was the halfway point to my end of year goal to weigh 150 and fit into a Size 10. I hit my 163 goal by February 7th, 2011 (YAY!!!), so I’m making new goals.

My current goal is to weigh 150 or less by July 4th, 2011 and fit into a Size 10 or 12. I will ultimately be shooting for 140 pounds by December 31st, 2011 and will shoot to maintain that from there.

Here is where I stand today:

  • I now weigh 157 (same as the last 2 weeks and 19 pounds overall so far…it’s getting harder…).
  • I fit into a Size 12!
  • I used 230 points of the 252 I was assigned (remember, I have to stay above a minimum of 203 to stay healthy).

Thanks for keeping me honest! I hope all of your goals are going as planned!

    Hey, we take small victories too. Last week, you “technically” fit into a 12. Now it’s “I fit in a 12″. Yeah!!!!

    I managed to get my 6 days in. Nothing special to report. Still running 5 miles 3 days a week and almost done with my Biggest Loser program. I’ll go back to the BoFlex (3x a week) next week for a while to change it up.

  • @MikeS, we’re almost done with the biggest loser program here at my job too. The final weigh-in is next Monday. I’m neck and neck for 5th place and $50. :-)

    I will take this victory. :-) I do flat out fit into a size 12 now! I also technically lost 0.4 pounds. I went from a 157.4 3 weeks ago to a 157.6 2 weeks ago, to a 157.2 this week, lol.

    I will be pushing this week to go to a solid 156 by next week so I can have officially lost 20 pounds…

  • I’m three pounds away from a “healthy” weight. Go Spring!
