Healthy Steps – Week 25

When I stepped on the scale today, I told my WW leader, “Anything that’s not a gain is a victory.” And I didn’t even mean that. I meant, “Anything that’s not +5 pounds is a victory.” Imagine my shock… I was down 2.2 pounds and am now less than 1 pound away from my Big …

Healthy Steps – Week 24

Progress Happens. This is the quote from this week that I sort of hung on to. I’m late posting this week, not because I did badly (I removed 4.2 pounds for a total of 35 pounds lost!) but because almost every other area of my life felt like too much and I couldn’t figure out …

Healthy Steps – Week 23

It was no shock to me that I gained 2.8 pounds this week. I camped and hiked and ate. I ate a lot of unhealthy foods, and I realized that I’m dangerously close to losing all progress. Before I could even think about that, I had to rush out of Weight Watcher’s check in to …

Healthy Steps – Week 22

Please forgive me; this post is a day late. I have been working on a project and time got away from me last night. I was down .8 pounds this week, leaving me 3.7 pounds away from the BIG TARGET. I’m pretty happy with that, especially considering how much cheating I did. I wish I …

Healthy Steps – Week 21

I am delighted to report, after the gloom and doom of my last post, that this week I lost 6.4 pounds, erasing last week’s gain and even dropping a little bit more. In fact, I am 4.5 pounds away from a big milestone: 10% gone! My goal when I started this 16-week Weight Watcher’s booklet …

Healthy Steps – Week 20.5

Oops. In so many ways… Last Wednesday (it’s Monday evening now) when I got on the scale I had gained over 5 pounds! Now, I was expecting an increase, but the amount surprised me. I resolved to work on the basics again, and have made some progress decreasing to 1 frappachino a day (again). But, …

Healthy Steps – Weeks 18 & 19

I’m not sure what happened to my post from last week (week 18); I guess I wrote it in my imaginary blog? It was a nice post. I gained 1.2 pounds and it was about how it’s the kick in the pants I need to get back to making changes. It was obviously a motivational …

Healthy Steps – Week 15-17

No, I haven’t forgotten about this. I just haven’t been home on a Wednesday so I could go to Weight Watchers and get a report! After two weeks and SO much traveling, I was very nervous about today’s weight in. While I had made a concerted effort not to eat my way around Oregon in …

Healthy Steps – Week 13

I lost (a frankly amazing) five pounds this week. While I am thrilled about this, I have to admit to being surprised. While I made some good choices, there were a lot of extremely questionable choices in there. This got me to thinking that a theme that keeps coming up is that weight removal is …

Healthy Steps – Week 12

I gained weight this week. In a perverse way, I am relieved. While I didn’t go off the rails like I did last week, I certainly didn’t snap back into shape. But it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, and frankly for the last two weeks, I’m still down a little. I’m feeling …
