First let me thank all of you who commented on my last post! I truly loved hearing from each of you and will be checking out the blogs of those I haven’t visited before. I appreciate all of my readers, and I am glad you took the time to comment. It’s not to late to comment, so if you’re a lurker who’s being shy, come out from hiding! 🙂
Today marks the beginning of my 3rd week on Weight Watchers. Y’all, week 2 was TOUGH stuff. I went over my daily points allowance every day but one. Fortunately, the plan also gives me 49 “extra” points to use throughout the week, and supposedly I can still lose weight even if I use those points. I ended up using 23 of those extra points this past week, whereas the week before that I only used 15. I was concerned about how this would affect the scale, but one thing made me feel better: activity points. Every time I exercise, I get points for that activity. The points are determined by what kind of exercise it is (walking or running, etc.) and how long I exercise for. For example, I get 2 activity points if I walk for 30 minutes, but I get 6 activity points if I run for 30 minutes. I can then choose to “eat” those extra points if I want. Obviously, this motivates me to exercise more and more specifically, it motivates me to run more since I get so many more points for that. I ended up with 30 points for the week, enough to make up for the extra points I ate and then some.
Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: my weigh-in.
I hope you all have a great week!
