Week 23

Week 23: 208.0
Last Week: 211.4
Progress: Down 3.4
Starting Weight: 270.2
Total Weight Loss: 62.2
Average Weekly Loss: 2.70

Today was the last weigh in for my at-work challenge. I lost 18 pounds in the last two months and was one of four people through 1:00 today to make it to our goal. There were about 40 people involved, so it should be a good pay-day. Out of the 4 that had made their goal, 3 were in my department. Could be because we do some much walking daily. Today without taking any extra walks, I have topped 15,000 steps. That is not too unusual for a day with a special event going on. Escorting wheel chairs sure adds up the steps.

Lost 3.4 at my WW meeting tonight. We discussed what holds us back from making progress. I added to the conversation, even though it really didn't pertain to me. I am not having a problem so far staying motivated to get below 200. The biggest problem for most was getting sick of planning menus. I haven't had that happen yet either. Very rarely do I plan what I'm having beyond breakfast. I have been bringing my own lunch to work the last two weeks, and that has seemed to be a good thing. Planning around how many points I can eat for dinner, which is usually the meal I do not plan for, has helped me. I save a majority of my points for dinner and snacking and it seems to be working right now. I'll stick with it till I need another change.
