Weight Watchers Friday-- Week 3

Week Three had a little more of "normal" life than the first two weeks. We went out to eat with some family friends last week. There was a big family holiday over the weekend and I ate pizza on Friday night. I also went to dinner with my friends last night. The biggest difference between this last week and my old "normal" is that I planned for all of these meals. I worked out like crazy and saved my points for those bigger meals. I chose healthier things to eat too and passed on most of the carbs.

New outfit, it feels so good to be in new (smaller) clothes!

This week I accomplished:
1. A WHOLE MONTH WITH NO DIET COKE. This is a huge milestone, people. The only time I have even remotely wanted it were the two times I had Mexican food this week, but I stuck with water.
2. Still no added sugar, eating just a little gluten.
3. I exercised EVERY day. No days off this week. My goal was to burn at least 500 calories a day and most days I hit around 700.
4. Buying new clothes. A size of jeans I haven't been in since before I had my kids. Not the size I want to stay in, but a smaller size which is a milestone!

The struggle:
I really had my sweet tooth flare up this week. I drank a protein smoothie one day and ate fruit another day. Both of those things did the trick. No chocolate involved.

The results:
I lost another 2 pounds, which means 8.4 total pounds! I am so proud of myself and the hard work is paying off!!!

55.6 lbs to go!

How was your week? What did you accomplish?

  3. I have a chocolate protein powder from Walmart. Its about 150 cal per scoops and I do half a scoop with a frozen banana and almond milk. Sometimes I add pb2 or peanut butter! Tastes just like a shake! And I promise once you start and see results, you'll never feel better! You can do it!

  5. Why is it that Mexican food always tastes better with a Coke?!

  6. Way to go, Jenna! I've been staying on course lately too! One thing I love when I eat Mexican is sweet tea. However, I haven't had anything but water for the past few weeks so I always ask for water with lime and that adds just enough flavor to do the trick! Keep it up! :) Lana
