Current Short Term Goal: 217 (50 pounds lighter)
I had another good week on the scales this week! I am 0.2 lbs from -30! Exciting. And only 3 lbs away from -50 pounds overall.
I went over my weekly points again... I am just not being disciplined enough. Maybe this week I'll be back on track. I've been eating more fruit again and menu planning helps a TON.
I only got 28 activity points this week, which is almost double my "goal" that the Weight Watchers website gave me. But I like to walk a lot. Like at least an hour at least four times a week. Unfortunately I hurt my foot last Friday. I went for a walk in what turned out to be an ill advised pair of shoes. That night, my foot hurt and when I posted about it on Facebook several of my friends suggested that it sounds like Plantar Faciitis. Which... well, it's annoying. I can do stretches and try to stay off it, but four days later it still hurts and I haven't been able to go for a walk in four days. I can't afford to buy expensive shoes, but luckily I do have a pair of Keens and one of my friends said hers are really good for this. In any case, we'll just have to see how things go. I talked to Justin the other day about bringing the eliptical machine in from the garage. Yeah, it'll be an eyesore but we pretty much never have people over anyhow, and I could do it while we watch TV after the kids are in bed which would be really nice. So maybe I can get him to help me with that in the next couple of days.
Last week I mentioned my goal of being under 200 by my birthday on November 23. Well, I looked at the calendar and I have 25 weeks until my birthday, so I would have to average less than a pound a week in order to meet that goal. When I put it that way, it sounds pretty do-able, doesn't it?! The idea of being under 200 pounds is really exciting to me. For a long time I had the idea in my head that if I ever got to 200 lbs, THEN I would FOR SURE do something about it. Then it turned into 210, 225, 250 etc. Well, I am finally ACTUALLY doing something about it, and this will really mean a lot to me if I can make it happen.
Next week I think I'll update my measurements and see what's happening there.
