Fat Burnin' Friday

Yes, I know it isn't Friday, but with a busy week end and weekend, I just didn't have the chance to put the post together.

It was a week that started out rough for me, last Friday when there was a carry-in lunch. It wasn't in my department, so I was fine at lunchtime, but when I learned after lunch that there were leftovers, I just couldn't resist the homemade egg rolls. Of course, when I grabbed one of those, the other treats looked very tempting. I survived Halloween, with little desire to eat any of the candy. Then, I had both lunch and dinner out on Wednesday...a set back, but choosing healthy meals, it was minor set back.

At my weigh in on Monday, I finally passed the 5% mark with my weight loss. I was very pleased with that. I really like how Weight Watchers sets up incremental goals for their members. In fact, they want you to lose 10% before they even help you determine what your goal weight should be. Large goals can be daunting. I think that it is a lot easier to succeed if you are measured against small goals. As you reach each goal, you feel accomplished.

On Friday, when I weighed in, I lost another 1 1/2#. I now only have 26.2# to go and am 1/3 of the way to my original goal.
