I’m really late in doing this post, but it’s been a busy weekend!

After a gain in week 7, I tried my best to make sure I had a loss this past week. I know there’s only so much I can do and some of it is out of my hands, but I controlled what I could. I stayed on point with meals and I was pretty active for the week. I ran twice and went to hot yoga twice. So, I was very happy when I weighed-in and saw this…


WW Weekly weigh-in Week 8


Down 2.8 pounds for the week! That was definitely something to celebrate. It’s so easy to get psyched out by a gain, so I was happy to see this loss and know what every bit of my hard work for the week paid off.


Things I did right this week are:

  • Still tracking….I mentioned this at the meeting too. Even if I eat badly or something that has an obscene amount of points, I still track it.
  • Water. This will likely never change.
  • Extra activity… Having the ActiveLink was a huge motivator for me the first full week using it. It’s easy to check at any time an see where I’m at. Being the over-achiever that I am, it motivates me to move more if I’m not near 100% for the day.
  • Went grocery shopping last Sunday and stocked up for the week. After tracking and water, stocking up and being prepared may be the most important tool.


What I will focus on this week:

  • As I continue to use and learn more about my ActiveLink, I will strive to get the most out of it on a daily basis.
  • Try to run twice this week, for 30 minutes.
  • Focus on specific goals. We talked about this in the meeting – sometimes our goals are too broad and we don’t achieve them. If we are specific, we are more likely to reach them. For example, rather than saying I will work out twice this week, I am specifying that I would like to run twice, for 30 minutes.


Here is my ActiveLink stats for the first full week. I earned 19 activity points! I am still convinced that I was under-estimating on some of my activity points and this proved that to me.

So, I have work cut out for this week, to keep up both the weight loss and the activity level. Two months back at WW and I am still very happy that I went back. The weight loss is proof once again that it does work. #ExpectAmazing
