Every week I’m posting my own exercise update for the challenge. Hopefully you will comment below with your weekly results as well. :-)

Crystal Light Challenge Update

I was still sick this week but did manage to complete 90 minutes of walking (but not a minute more, lol).  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 to maintain that from there.

Here is where I stand today:

  • I now weigh 161 (down 15 pounds!).
  • My clothes are looser and I measured 3 inches less in my waist last week but I still am still not quite to a size 12…
  • I used 235 points of the 252 I was assigned.

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

    Nice job on losing another 2 pounds despite being sick. That’s not an easy thing to do.

    I upped my running distance yesterday to 4.5 miles. I’m also a little sore in a few spots from my other exercising. My wife and I have the Biggest Loser game for the Xbox. I’m been using that the last couple weeks instead of my Boflex (just for something different). Guess I’m exercising some areas a bit more than I was before.

  • @MikeS, you and your routine amaze me. It really is inspiring.

  • I’ve been doing the PX90 workouts…but not every day. I seem to be in a constant state of soreness at the moment. Great job on your weight loss. I’m so impressed. It would take me over a year to accomplish what you did in 2 months.

  • @First Gen, the weight loss has been surprisingly easy. No, really. I love the points system that Weight Watchers has because I budget them just like I budget money, lol. It’s surprising how much motivation budgeting gives me…I am weird but it works…

    You have some really good ideas! Have you tried the “7 on 2 off diet” yet? I don’t know how safe it is, but I’ve lost almost 30 pounds since the first of the year.

  • @Richie, I’m glad you’ve found something that works! I’m going to ride Weight Watchers until it bucks me. :-)
