Healthy Steps – Week 29

I have to admit, I think I have lost a week somewhere in June or July. But I am calling weight in on July 25 as week 29 and I guess if it’s not, the counting police can come get me.

When I weighed in on Wednesday i was not expecting big things; it had been a week of good decisions with more than a few bad decisions thrown in there.  Therefore, I was thrilled to have removed another 1.6 pounds for a total loss of 40.2 pounds. Forty just really sounds like an accomplishment, doesn’t it.

When we are working in the WW books they break things down into 4 week segments. I was thrilled to notice that I had beat my four week goal and was only a few pounds away from my summer goal (by Labor Day I have a weight in mind.)

Fearlessly, I decided to put a goal EVEN LOWER than my summer goal for the next four week, which means that I could be EVEN LOWER than my summer goal weight on labor day. I guess I’ll take that as my last day to wear my skinny bikini.

It’s summer time, which has benefits as far as fruits and vegetables being available. The downside is that you have to be in a hot kitchen just to prepare them. The other benefit of summer is that when it’s 100 degrees out, I don’t really feel hungry. The downside is that I do eventually get hungry and eat EVERYTHING.

Does this mean I have a new an exciting daily goal? No. Frankly, just my four basic goals is so challenging right now that I can’t even imagine changing it up.

So I’m still tweaking my habits toward the basic.

  • Eating my prepared food
  • Hit 11,000 all seven days, taking at least one break/lunch walk
  • Tracking 4 of 7 days
  • 2 Frappuccinos per day

I just hope I don’t melt. I hate hot weather.
