Sweet 75! The holidays were definitely a challenge, but I came through it with a loss. The week, one person hit 25 pounds, one person got their 10% and I hit 75 pounds. What more could Weight Watchers ask for the day after a major holiday when there were at least twice as many people as usual at the meeting.
At our meeting, we discussed what our goals are for the new year. On the GOAD board, I posted three goals for the new year:
1. To hit my goal by my birthday. 5 pounds in a month seems doable especially now that the holidays are over. Unfortunately, there are many family birthdays coming up in the next two months starting with about 5 in January and 3 in February along with a new baby being born somewhere in there as well.
2. To average 12,000 steps a day for the entire year. This past year, since June 1, I logged over 1500 miles of walking. That my friends, is a long way.
3.) To eat at least 5 fruits and veggies daily. I'm not having problems with this at all, but I know it will continue to be a key to staying on track.
We also got a new Book 4, which discusses dining out. Yesterday, I took the family out to IHOP. The key to staying on track for me was to go to their website and order before I even got there. It made it a lot more manageable as I wasn't tempted by the higher calorie choices, since I knew what I was getting already. I always thought that suggestion seemed ridiculous, but it worked and I'll be looking at other websites before going out to eat again.
