Last night was weigh in at Weight Watchers. In all honesty I wasn't expecting to have lost that much. My fingers were swollen and I just didn't feel any different. I was surprised to see that I was down some. Here are my results:
17.4 lbs to go!
I guess that is a good start. I won't complain. It's not like I'm a contestant on the Biggest Loser or something. This stuff is going to take time so I will celebrate these accomplishments each week no matter how small. After weigh in there is a half hour meeting. In all honesty I figured I'd be bored but I really did learn some things from the other members.
We did a major grocery shop over the weekend. There is a local dollar store that sells produce and frozen items. I was able to get quite a bit of fruit & veggies there. They also had Lean Cuisine frozen meals for a buck. Those are usually quite expensive in a regular grocery store. I also hit up Trader Joes which has a variety of things that are lower in sugar, which is great for my diabetic husband. We stocked up on whole wheat pasta, turkey meatballs, edamame (I love that with a little bit of sea salt), whole wheat english muffins and almond butter. I think part of being successful at eating healthier is variety.
My goal for this week is to increase the exercise. I went out and ran/walked on Saturday, but that was it for the whole week. Time to step it up.
