I made the mistake of not figuring out the point value of dinner early in the morning and it ended up being more than I had thought. Oh well it was AWESOME! Then Chris was like “lets go get a starbucks” and I figured..Im already over… what the heck.. so tomorrow I REALLY need to make sure I walk cos now I’m chasing activity points!

More Conversations w/ my trainer..

  • NB: Are you feeling ok?
  • ME: Yeah..sort of.. might die soon.
  • NB: You always look so stoic so I can never read your face to know if you are ok.
  • ME: I try not to think about it.
  • NB: What ever gets you through it.
  • (Makes me wonder.. what does everyone else do/ say..look like cos he tells me I'm easy.. I'm not going to fight him or tell him I'm not going to do what he wants me to do... if it was easy I'd have already been doing it! I'm paying him to tell me what to do for a reason.)

Conversations with my trainer...

  • NB: Sorry about Tuesday (when he had to bail on me 1/2 way through the session)
  • ME: That's ok

  • ME: Oh awesome (VERY sarcastic)
  • NB: Is it ok if we redo your push day?
  • ME: Sure
  • NB: GREAT!! Let's go... circuit style 10 seconds on 10 seconds rest for 4 laps. 1. Kettle Bell Squats, 2. Push throughs 3. Leg steps ups 10 seconds per leg and 4. Dumbbell crunches. You can rest for a few minutes then we start the second round 1. bent leg lunges 10 seconds each leg 2. Strap push ups 3. jump squats 4. leg lifts.
  • ME: (wants to run away) Awesome fun...

Help! I’ve reached a plateau

Our take: Just one week of unsatisfactory results doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress. Here’s how to know for sure if you’ve hit a plateau: figure out your average weekly loss since you joined, excluding the first three weeks. If it’s under a half pound you might be on a plateau, but don’t panic. There are two very simple and possible explanations:

  • You’re actually burning fat instead of the glycogen stored in your body because the glycogen is gone (used up by the need created by your reduced caloric intake). Fat doesn’t hold water and requires twice as much energy to burn, so your weight loss seems to be slower.

  • Most plateaus are caused by a relaxed adherence to the plan. As you progress through your journey you become better adept at following the plan—understanding portion size for example or knowing how the details work. Sometimes that makes you believe that you no longer need to weigh and measure your food or track. Even if you aren’t aware of the subtle relaxation, the scale is. Don’t sweat it. This is a learning process, and with time and experience you will determine exactly what you must do to achieve weight loss on the plan
What you can do about it today
Go back to basics. 
Consistently use your measuring spoons and food scale to make sure that you are consuming the right number of PointsPlus values each day.

Look at what worked for you in the past and do it again.
Use a week of eating from one of your first weeks on plan. Pull out an old tracker or print up a week from your online tracker and follow it to the letter for a week. It helped you lose weight the first time and probably will again.

Turn to the Simply Filling technique.
Do so for a week or more. This can shake things up and introduce you to new and interesting meal ideas.

Don’t fall into a rut.
Boredom can be one reason for relaxed adherence to the plan. Keep it interesting by trying a new recipe or two. Browse these subscriber favorites for something to make this week a success.

"Thanks for tracking your weight. You lost 0 lbs. Weight: 166.1 lbs - Change from start: - 33.7 lbs.
Thanks for tracking your weight. If you’re satisfied with your weight this week, keep doing what you’ve been doing. If not, the suggestions below may lead you in the right direction.

Best of luck and see you next week!"

WW online. well 0 change is better than a gain but not what I’m working for so obviously need to do things different this week and that will include making sure I get my walking and gym schedules back on track and snacking on fruit and veggies.

I wore my exercise outfit all day planning to walk but life happened… I have so much work to do..ugh. Tomorrow I’m back at the gym with Nudieboy though..I’m sure it will kill me after not being there in over a week and not being consistent on my walks.

I have my happy hat (which Chris and Miranda make fun of but I LOVE it) and my fave Bondi Band.. gonna grab some tunes&#8230; I&#8217;m thinking the new Mastodon album THE HUNTER (hunt the sugar monster please) and head out on the road to put some serious activity points in the bank!

You lost 0.6 lbs this week! Congratulations, and keep doing exactly what you’re doing!

See you next week.

Weight Watchers online -

Um you wouldn’t say that WW if you REALLY knew what I was doing. I’m not proud of this loss because it wasn’t deserved..but I’ll take it and move on. I think I need a big slap in the face wake up call or something. No gym today so I’m going to walk and start this week off right. Put my game face on and my protective gear against the sugar monster.

This little dude here needs to go the fuck away&#8230;he has been hounding me for the past 2 weeks and he&#8217;s TOUGH! There is also no denying it&#8230;. I am a stress eater and I have no expectations tomorrow. I&#8217;ll be lucky if I don&#8217;t gain&#8230;AGAIN.
TAKE 2 on starting fresh&#8230; I need something to banish this little monster though.

Every single day losing weight is a battle. A battle to make the right choices, a battle to work out even though our muscles are sore and there are a thousand other things we’d rather be doing. But most of all, it’s a battle to not give up. Every day, it still seems like we’re so far from our goal weight and it takes all of our willpower to keep going, to not give in. This isn’t easy… but it’s definitely going to be worth it.

You gained a little this week. You gained 1.4lbs.
Change since start -34.5
So, you gained a little bit this week.
Gaining is a normal part of the process and can happen for a lot of reasons.

Look back at this week and see what you might be able to change; then let go of what you can’t. The best thing to do is focus on is making this coming week a success.

"

Weight watchers online - thanks WW…

Ok so I didn’t gain 40 lbs in a week but it sure felt like it.
