Weight Loss Wednesday- The After Holiday Downer

If you’re missing Wordless Wednesday, have no fear!  I’ve reinstated my blog Pictures of Jello where I’ll be posting my photography Smile, so be sure to go check it out Smile

Wednesdays will now be Weight Loss Wednesday Smile  I have a visual for you to keep in mind over the next week as you make eating choices.  I’m going to keep it at the forefront of my mind, considering I gained 4.2 pounds over Christmas.  Yes.  I was shocked too.  But, it is what it is, and all I can do is move on from here….    Here’s the visual:

Ugh.  Yuck.  Blech….  Wow.

If you feel like you’ve done all this work and “ONLY” lost 3 pounds, or 5 pounds, or 15 pounds…  where ever you are, visualize this in relation to what you’ve lost.  It might change your vocabulary and take the “ONLY” out!

Last week we had a substitute leader and she asked us to set a goal of where we want to be at Valentine’s Day on our journey.  Then we took out our weight trackers and on the back marked where we want to be on the graph.  I set a conservative goal of 10 pounds lighter by Valentines Day (7 weeks of weight loss).  This week I stayed the same, but I wasn’t surprised because of New Year’s Eve and the chocolate fountain Winking smile

My goals for this week are:

  • Get back on track with my water.  It’s hard when it’s cold…
  • Get back on track with my fruits and veggies.  Also hard when it’s cold because I don’t want a smoothie…..
  • Earn at least 14 activity points this week
  • Stay within my points range for the week.  Haven’t done that for at least 2 weeks…

How about you?  What are your goals for this week?
