During lunch I went to my weekly WeightWatcher weigh-in today. As background, for the past few weeks I had plateaued with very little loss on the scale, but I did notice that I lost another inch around my waist since last measurement – so I was cautiously optimistic about today’s result.
I’m pleased to report that I was down -4.0 lbs this week. So far I’ve lost 28.0 lbs since my first weigh-in back on April 7th, 2010.
For the record, here’s the week-by-week break down of my adventures in WeightWatching thus far:
Week 1: -4.8 lbs
Week 2: -3.2 lbs
Week 3: -1.0 lbs
Week 4: -3.4 lbs
Week 5: -3.6 lbs
Week 6: -2.2 lbs
Week 7: -1.2 lbs
Week 8: -2.4 lbs
Week 9: -1.2 lbs
Week 10: -0.0 lbs
Week 11: -1.4 lbs
Week 12: +0.6 lbs
Week 13: -0.6 lbs
Week 14: -4.0 lbs
So after 14 weeks, I’ve lost an average of -2.0 lbs per week.
What I had done differently this week was focus on getting more steps in every day - I got 10K steps in seven-out-of-seven days – in addition to a minimum of :30 minutes of some other activity at least four-out-of-the seven days.
I’m trying not to be too excited about this result, because I want to be more neutral in my response regarding both the highs and lows of this journey.
Well, that’ll do it for today – hopefully there will be even less of me to write about next week!
