I hope everyone had a good weekend. I know we did. Although the weekends never quite seem to be long enough.
This weekend was good, especially eating wise. I did great and stayed OP all weekend, I’ve been such a good little WW’r! And to make it better, I’m learning to stick to the new plan! I’m loving that fruit (and veggies) are free, even if it did mean that points of my other favorites went up.
DH is also doing very very well staying OP. About the only time he complains is on Sundays when we go out to eat with family and everything is so many points, and he can’t get what he normally eats. But this first week back OP from his Thanksgiving Eating (and leftovers), he lost almost 7 pounds, I’m sure some of which was water weight from eating so bad. But still, way to go DH. He only has about 10 more pounds until he gets where he would like to be. I hope it takes him a month or two at least, because with him, it’s not so much about the Weight Loss as I’m trying to teach him to make smarter choices, and portion control.
DH was never one of those guys that had a weight problem (and really, even today, he is only about 10lbs over weight). In fact, when DH and I met in 2004, he was about 60lbs lighter than he is today. He HAD a hyperactive thyroid, and he could literally eat ANYTHING he wanted and not gain an ounce (hence the beginning to my weight issue!). Well overtime, his hyperactive thyroid has become normal, and he no longer can eat anything, and unfortunately his eating style didn’t change, hence the 60lbs of gained weight in 6 years.
So really for him, this isn’t about losing the weight, although I do think it will help lower his cholesterol, give him more energy and just in general make him feel better. It’s more about learning healthy eating habits and maintaining a healthy weight. It’s easy to let your weight get out of control before you know it, and I didn’t want to see that happen with him.
So I lost 1.6 pounds since my last weigh in, and I was really happy with that. The last time I had weighed was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so on that loss was Thanksgiving eating, and three days of not so great eating while trying to get the hang of the new plan. So I will definitely take it. I’m excited for this weeks weigh in, especially if I can keep rocking the plan the way I have been. I’m really really hoping that even though the holidays are this month I can still manage to lose the 5 or 6 pounds I want too.
Other than that, not too much going on here in Michigan. I’m waiting for the Baseball winter meetings to see how my Tigers round out for next year, and then of course excited to get to the College Football Bowl Games, but other than that, Nothing terribly exciting.
Hope everyone has healthy and OP week!
