Healthy Steps – Week 11

Folks, I went off the rails this week. A combination of hormones, doctors, work stress, pet drama, and heaven only knows what else just go to me. There was pie. There was Easter Candy. There were multiple pizzas. And the Frappachinos are back. When I got on the scale today, I was braced for the …

Healthy Steps – Week 10

Drum roll please! This week I  lost 4.6 pounds, bringing my total to 23.4 pounds removed!!! Second drum roll… I’ve also been off Frappachinos for 3 days. Feeling shaky, but I’m trying. I wish all this meant I was thriving, but honestly, both of my feet hurt now (I’m concerned I’m developing plantar fascitiis in …

Healthy Steps – Week 9

I’m a day late in posting this. I sat down at my computer last night and did lots of stuff, but not this. It could be I was procrastinating. I gained 2.2 pounds last week. It wasn’t a shocker. I tracked 2 of 7 days and went to see my mom (I think we bring …

Healthy Steps – Week 8

This was a challenging week for me; a three-day weekend, a trip, several stressful meetings, and a slow period at work. Any one of these can and did trigger my desire to eat EVERYTHING. I didn’t eat EVERYTHING, but I certainly did eat plenty. Thus, is was a pleasant surprise when I was down .4 …

Healthy Steps – Week 7

This week I was down 3.8 pounds. This makes a total of 20.6 pounds (12.2 of those in this year) removed and… drum roll please… 5% of my starting weight. Weight Watchers doesn’t celebrate this milestone anymore, but I’m going to because I need the validation! So I was thinking this evening about all this …

Healthy Steps – Week 6

In spite of a week that in some ways got the best of me, I am down another 1.6 pounds this week! Frankly, it seems like a miracle because there was A LOT of emotional eating in there. But my goals, small though they were, were there and at the end of the week progress …

Healthy Steps – Week 5

Another 1.2 lost! I’m very pleased with myself! I am also trying to get another project done tonight, so I’m just going to reiterate my goals (still, no change….) with last week’s status in paraenthesis: Tracking – 7 days, 3 in “blue dot” zone (none last week) Have 1 Frapachino in the morning (4 of …

Healthy Steps – Week 4

On Tuesday, I posted this picture on Weight Watcher’s social media app “Connect.” I also contacted the WW help app to grumble and be reminded about “long term goals.” This was after a week of tracking, three days in the “blue dot zone”, and seven days of hitting my FitBit 10,000 steps a day. Did …

Healthy Steps – Week 3

Right off the bat… I lost 3.6 pounds this week. I’m a little surprised, but so thrilled. It wasn’t a stellar week, and my steps were absolutely tiny, but at least I’m heading in the right direction. Once again, I’m not ready to take on more, so I’m going to stick to my basic set …

Healthy Steps – Week 2

This week I gained 2.6 pounds. Honestly, while I’m disappointed, I feel like it’s more the category of “staying the same” because I’ve been gaining and loosing that same 2 pounds for about a year.  But, I did make some healthy (small) steps. So, all is not lost. Last week I said I was going …
