Weight Watchers

Myself and my mother went back last week.  I weighed in 2st 2.5lbs above my goal weight.  I can confirm that the majority of that is chocolate and for the most part I enjoyed every last mouthful.  Anyway after a week of pointing (I can almost do this in my sleep) and tracking (this I can’t do in my sleep and rarely did in my waking hours) we went back for our second weigh in – actually I like to think of it as our first.  Anyway I was 3lbs down!  and so was my mother – so I have to say between us we are fantastic.  I doubt I’ll have another week like that but I’ll be happy with anything from .5lb on.  So I have my goals planned out.  I want to be half a stone down by Easter and hopefully I won’t do too much damage at Eastercon.  I want to be a stone down by our holiday to Paris in June and I want to be free or within screaming distance of goal for my cousins wedding in August.  It’s not asking for a lot but there’s a lot to be done in order to attain it.  I will get there I know that so it’s back to tracking tomorrow morning.

New Year New Weight Watchers

Well I had well and truely fallen off the WW bandwagon and found that I am now 2stone above my goal weight – eek.  I sat on the bus home thinking Oh My God!  It wasn’t the figures on the scales – they were exactly what I expected but what I can’t figure out is why I did it.  That is 28lbs worth of weight I shouldn’t have to work on.  The other scary thing is that at least one of those stones is a stone worth of chocolate!  Ah well these things happen and I’ll work on it through out the year and get back down to goal (again)  The main aim is to be down by my cousins wedding in August which is achievable.

Anyway I went back to the meetings at lunchtime and had a read of the new plan – basically it’s back to points again.  I didn’t mind it works for me when I do it so here I come.  In order to try and get off to a flying start I’ve my breakfast ready for tomorrow – it’s a fruit smoothie and I’m going to start on lunch when I’m finished writing this.  I’m somewhat curious about the smoothie – normally I’d have a bowl of porridge but have decided to go for variety for the week.

Ok now I’m rambling so I’m going to stop but I want to mention that I really have to willpower and bought yet another book !  This time it’s:  Fireside: A Family Companion yet another book to keep me entertained during those long winter nights – all I need now is lessons on how to turn the telly off!

Good night!
