It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 38 and this week I lost 0 lbs. for a running total of 37.5 lbs. I am ecstatic about this!! Why you ask, because after eating carni food all weekend at the Court Days festival I attended I was dreading a gain this week. I guess the fact that we walked all day every day cancelled out all that crazy food. Can I get a hallelujah?!
I am doing something a little different in this week's WW post, as well as in the next few weeks to come. I have recently made a fabulous new blog friend (the Domestic Princess in Training), and she is hosting a weekly weightloss challenge from now until November 12. I have been needing something to get me more motivated lately, and I think this is just the ticket. In a nutshell, she has a few questions she posts on Mondays and we answer the questions, list our goals, and follow up with the others who have linked up for the week. It is a great idea for some accountability and I am in desperate need of that this week. SO, here is the list of questions and my answers:
1. What is the goal are you trying to reach by November 12th?
My goal is twofold. First I want to accurately journal every.single.morsel of food I put in my mouth. Secondly, I am switching over to the Core Plan instead of the Flex Plan. I was supposed to do that last week, but being that I traveled more than I was home it just didn't happen. I am focusing mainly on my food because I have found a good rhythm regarding exercise but my food choices are still a struggle and I have to be better about journaling. One other benefit to keeping a food journal is that I can keep track of different things I eat and swith them up so I don't get as bored.
2. What are you going to do to support yourself in reaching your goal?
I have made some new food journal sheets in Excel and I am printing a stack of them off tonight and decorating a cutie-patootie notebook with the thought that I will be more likely to use it if it is cute. That is just how I am. I make no apologies.
I am also going tomorrow to find a small notebook to put in my purse that I can have when I am out and eat something so that I won't forget to journal stuff.
3. This one is optional but if you like include a picture/pictures of the things that you are going to use to get you moving in the right direction.
If you do Weight Watchers and want a free food journal you can print out, here is a link to a good one.
If you want to buy this little beauty, here is the link. I don't know this seller personally, but they have some awesome notebooks. I will post pictures of my notebook either when I finish it or next week on WW Wednesday.
Last but not least, if this accountability thing sounds like something that interests you, here is a link to the Domestic Princess In Training. She is awesome and so sweet to host this for the next few weeks. I hope all my WW buddies had a great week and I can't wait to hear from you!
