WEIGHT WATCHERS; week 3

Week 3 didn't turn out very well. I certainly made some measuring mistakes. I ended up having quite a few points left over, but I ate every single one of my exercise ones and all of my daily ones.

My number one mistake was eating late. At least 3 nights we had late dinners ( around 9:30) and that never sits well with me. Even though I stayed within my points target eating late in general is still bad.

I had a major sweet tooth. Like major. I didn't go crazy but I definitely had a weight watchers ice cream every single night. Again, it was within my points but I'm sure I could of had better self control

And my third mistake was measuring. I never measured any meats or exact amounts of pasta and I think that's a biggy. I went out yesterday and bought a food scale and plan to measure everything this week, including all oil, butter, etc.


Overall I gained half a lb. I didn't like it, and felt like crying but it could have been worse. I'm trying to change my mistakes and move forward. I had my last day of personal training :( booo! on Sunday so now it's just me, myself and I in the gym. I started insanity ( another post about that soon!) and plan to take 2 zumba classes, 2 lifting classes and 4 or 5 days of cardio.


So we'll leave it at that. I'm planning to measure everything this week. Eat all my daily points and only my exercise points and leave my flex/weekly points alone. No more late night dinners, and a lot less sweets!

  1. Don't beat yourself up too hard. a 1/2 a pound is nothing. You will have weeks you go up and weeks you go down. I always went up a bit during the week our not so friendly friend visits and was always down the following week. It's all apart of the journey. I started WW July 2010 and lost a total of 40 pounds by December 2010. I am now at goal. and I too ate out, A lot actually. But I found places that were point friendly and ate in moderation & it worked for me. A few places would be taco bell - fresco menu. Panera. Ihop - simple & fit items. In & Out or Habit burger - Lettuce wrapped burgers. Jimboys - Chicken Taco/Taquitos. Pizza. Not sure if you have the WW e-tools or the WW iphone app but there is a restaurant guide that gives you items to choose from. If the restaurant I like isn't on there then I try and go to the website of that place and look for the nutritional guide and use my WW e-tools calculater on the website or my iphone and calculate out items and decide what I can eat that is point friendly before I go to the place. I haven't taken away my favorite foods or places to go out and eat. I just eat it moderation and switch things up. Like Whole Wheat Pasta instead of regular, etc. I also didn't excercise much. The most 2-3 days and it was mostly just walking or yoga or hanging out in my swimming pool in the summer. & I Almost always used a majority of my extra weekly points. I have now been maintaining my weight and am a lifetime member. One bit of advise I can offer is to MEASURE. It is key. It's good that you figured out where you needed to change. Good luck with your journey.

  2. I think one reason why WW is so successul is because it's about a lifestyle change...teaching you to eat better, what your portion sizes, more veggies, etc...Head up girlie! It takes time. I've had a down weight week (as in no loss, possible gain)too but I'm trying not to let it get the best of me.
