Weight Watchers - Week 7

 Start Date:  Jan. 5, 2012
Starting Weight: 198

Today's Date: Feb. 23, 2012
Current Weight: 189.6

Week 7: Lost .2
Total Loss: Back to 8.4
Well I lost the .2 pounds that I gained last week although I expected a little more. Even though I used a lot of my 49 extra for my birthday, I worked out really hard at the gym, so I expected at least a pound. I have to admit, I almost cried. But my amazing husband reminded me that it took years to put the weight on and even though 7 weeks sounds like a lot, in reality, it isn't. It's going to take my body time but with some perseverance the weight will come off.
Note: My Daily Point Limit is now 31 points down from 32 because I've lost 8.4 pounds. You also get an additional 49 points a week to use however you want (a little everyday, all at once, or not at all). You also earn points for the activity that you do. 

 Day 1: Used 33 points. (Used 2 of my 49 extra)
Earned 4 points for 45 minutes on the stationary bike 
Earned 1 point for 15 minutes on the elliptical  

Day 2: Used 59 points. (Used 28 of my 49 extra ~ Hubby took me out for dinner and drinks for my birthday)
Day 3: Used 30 points. (1 point remaining) 
Day 4: Used 31 points points. (0 points remaining)

49 Extra Weekly Points Used: 35
Activity Points Earned: 22 VERY proud of this number. (Didn't use these for food)
 Week 8 Goal:
Same as last week: Drink more water a day, go to the gym at least twice, STOP SKIPPING BREAKFAST (which I didn't AT ALL this week) and I'm adding stay positive and keep going despite the scale!
