Crystal Light Challenge and Weight Watchers Update #9

For new readers (hello!), go check out the Crystal Light Challenge and join on in! It’s simply a challenge to meet your own exercise goal. I am shooting for 90 minutes a week.

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

If you’d like to be added to the challenger list, please leave your name, exercise goal, and website URL (if you have one) below and I’ll happily add you to the list! You can also email me your info to ccthoughts *at* gmail *dot* com or use the Contact form at the top.

Crystal Light Challenge Update

I continued walking briskly at least 10-25 minutes every day around my job’s parking lot.  That means I hit my 90 minutes goal this 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 158 (down 18 pounds overall so far!!!).
  • My waist hasn’t changed much in the last 2 weeks (although I have lost 3.5 inches overall).  Most of my weight loss seems to be in the padding I had around my sides and face – I look ALOT thinner.  Size 14 slacks are pretty loose and a size 12 is pretty tight.
  • I used 205 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!

    Yeah on losing another pound. Congrats on keeping up with the walking. Pretty soon it will become a habit and you won’t have to even think about doing it.

    I didn’t hit my 6 days this week. Was a little under the weather so I missed a couple days this week. Still going to start running outside this week (assuming the weather cooperates).

  • You go girl. Keep it up. You even inspire me to be more active. And regarding your BFS budgeting post, buying new clothes because you’ve lost weight is certainly a worthwhile expense. I would have no problem at all forking over a small fortune on a new wardrobe if I dropped a size….although I’d probably hit the thrift stores first.

    Look at this way–you’ve lost 18 pounds in just 2 months!! That is wonderful! Could you have done it ‘on your own’? I’m thrilled for you!

    I just joined WW and my second meeting is this Monday. I’m excited to see how I’ve done so far.

    Good luck to you!

  • @MikeS, this reply is late, but get better soon!

    @First Gen, I’m actually taking a trip to Goodwill next weekend. :-)

    @Barb, good luck to you too! Keep us updated!!!
