Fat Burnin' Friday

There have been lots of challenges for me this week. We went out for dinner for my husband's birthday, we had a catered lunch during a work meeting, everyone brought in birthday treats at work for my birthday and my kids and mom made me a birthday cake at home - which of course, I had with ice cream.

On the positive side, I did get to go on a decent walk one day at lunch, which not only felt good, but was good for me. I did a really great job drinking plenty of fluids and choosing a variety of foods.

This week I joined Weight Watchers. Things have changed some since last time I joined. Your daily points target is based on your current weight, your age, your gender and your height. What this means is that every time you pass a decile, your target points go down by 1 point, with a minimum daily target of 18. What hasn't changed is that they also give you a bank of weekly points, to allow you a splurge if you want or just a few extra points each day as you adjust. If I can lose another 2 pounds, I will lose a point next week. I'd like to do that.

There are more challenges in the week to come - another birthday party and travel for work. I'd like to start reintroducing P90X next week as well.

Despite all of the challenges I encountered this week, I was still able to lose 1.5# this week. I feel pretty good about that. It gives me faith that even if I have small set backs along the way, I shouldn't let them turn into bigger set backs assuming it is a lost cause, because I can still lose if I watch the remaining time. I have lost 5 pounds so far since starting my adventure two weeks ago.

Pounds to go: 35#
