WEIGHT WATCHER WEIGH IN- Results


I went to my 12:15 Weight Watcher meeting yesterday and found out that I had maintained my weight, not gained or lost. So I am still at 8.2 pounds lost after three weeks. While that's still ahead of my goal of 2 pounds a week...I am stepping up my program!! I am intensifying my battle plan!!


This morning I got up and did my walk and added situps to the routine. While my coffee is perking I will be doing situps from now on! Also, because of school starting on Monday, I had neglected my usual walk all week....no longer! School has started and I will still continue to walk my 14 blocks 5 times a week!


I am writing down every point of every morsel of food! Last night I had dinner with Jessi and Emma at "Chris Robin" on the north side. Before they arrived I talked to the waitress about what on the menu would be Weight Watcher friendly. She had been to Weight Watchers and
knew the point total of the kid''s turkey burger with or without bun with steamed veggies and teriyaki sauce. So I had that (without the bun) :)


Thanks to Jessi for her encouragement about taking a swim class at SCC (I'll look into that today) Thanks sweetie for your support and encouragement and being proud of me for my efforts! It means a great deal to have your support!


And thanks to Amy for your continued help in getting to meetings, your constant checking in (how is your eating going today?) and for the text message that boosted my spirits! Going with you to those meetings makes all the difference. Also, thanks for making me a Weight Watcher lunch yesterday after the meeting! It is so helpful and fun to do this together!


I am encouraged by Galatians 5:1 that says "Thank you Lord that it is for freedom that you have set us free. Help her to STAND FIRM and not be entangled again in this slavery."
I do not want to be entangled in a slavery to eating poorly! Thanks Aim for sending me that perfect devotional!


Also I saw an impactful advertisement on TV for talking to your kids about drugs. It showed a Mommy talking to a little girl (probably 3). The little girl says, "Mommy, why is Nana gone?" The Mom with a tear in her eye says, after a long pause, "Honey, you know how the pretty spring flowers come and then they go away?" The little girl says "Yes". The Mommy says"Well that's what happened to Nana."

The ad then says if you can talk to them about death you can talk to them about drugs! Oh my gosh...I started to cry. I could see Kayla, Emma, and Jenna's face in that little girl! I am their Nana, as well as Jacob's, Zac's and my other grandkid's Nana.

I KNOW I was meant to see that ad to help me resolve to get healthy so I can stay on the planet longer!!!


So...today I am stepping up the battle plan! I am armed with my WW Tracker, my support sytem, my Bible quote, and my own STAND FIRM resolve! This body is God's temple...and I am improving how I take care of it!

Look out pounds! No more maintaining..you will be gone!!

Love and hugs to all who read this! God Bless! Love Linda (aka Nana)

Linda: Thank you for your comments on my blog. Now. . . you are amazing. I know the ultimate goal is to lose but for me the journey and lessons of our goals is more important than the outcome. I am thrilled for you when you lose because you are thrilled. I think even more of you because you are able to see the big picture and acknowlege the path.

I'm proud of you for going and for being accountable...no matter what. It takes a while to get good habits and I know that you can do it! I love you.

If YOU CAN SEE IT...
YOU CAN ACHEIVE IT........

Find a picture of that you love of yourself at a favorite weight....

Study the picture carefully.....

Get it engraved in your mind....

Then try to remember how good you felt at that weight....

You deserve to feel that way again....

And you will.....

Stick to your plan....

I am cheering for you....

Love you.....
