Fat to Fit #1

If you're an office slave like me then I hope you enjoyed your day off. If not, I don't feel bad for you because I'm sure there is some holiday you get off that I don't. Yes I'm gloating. No I'm not sorry.

I'm even more un-sorry as I've spent the weekend with Little Miss and some other favorites. Which accounts for the fact that this Sunday post is appearing at 10:30 on a Monday night. 2 year olds are more fun than drafting posts.


Here we are starting week 3 of my overhaulin' project. I struggled something fierce in my first 5 days back on WW. And by struggled I mean blew it. I tracked everything so I'll give myself a bronze start there but I demolished my extra weeklies were gone by Sunday night. #fail

Week 2 was a little better. I pre-tracked some of my meals and even though I had a department party and a brunch to go to, I think I did well. My weigh in for week in was 186.2 so I was down 2.8 #WIN

Week 3 was good food wise. I tracked everything, stayed within my points, barely used my weeklies, went to the gym once and.... I gained. It was only .2 and I'm not even acknowledging this because of TOM and I'm chalking it up to bloat and water weight. I plan on going into week 4 with a loss!

This week finds me back at school so I need to find meals that will keep me full much longer than usual; and I need snacks that I can take to class with me. I mapped out my weekly schedule and I'm going to make a serious effort to get to the gym the three days I'm not in class.

This is one of my favorite weight loss inspiration quotes. It's exactly what needs to be done to be successful and get where I want to be.

  1. We are in the same SITS tribe!

    hahahah... so need to introduce myself to you

  2. Hi there! It's Alison, your fellow SITS tribe member. I love the two quotes, especially the second one. Like you, I'm trying to be in the gym at least three times a week. Today I'll have to do weights at home. It's a snow day and they're advising people to stay home.Keep at it! Make sure you have good healthy snacks, like nuts and fruit, on hand for when the munchies hit. And they will!

    Take care,


  3. I've been back at WW for 2.5 weeks now. The first week I didn't try hard because I was going out of town for several days (and gained 2.2!!) Last week I did really well using the new Simple Start program. The only points I tracked were the "indulgence" points every day, and I still went over 7 each day. I did go to the gym 3 times that week. I lost 2.4 lbs. I don't know which program you're doing, but the Simple Start has worked well for me so far. It is so much less overwhelming and difficult since you only have to track a few things instead of every.single.thing. Keep your head up though, you're on the right track! It definitely takes time to get in a groove.

  4. I'm trying not to quit too! I'm actually trying to find a happy medium that's for health and not bikini contests. I'm getting too old for that shit, but I still want to be at optimum health and strength!
