feedback, not failure

Weight Chart

I was up a little, which is disappointing but not a big surprise. I had various things come up and let them interfere with following my program. Anyway, it's feedback, not failure. Do I sound like a Weight Watchers drone yet?

Today was the first week of my new Weight Watchers @ Work session, so my leader went over program again. It never hurts to review the basics, especially those Good Health Guidelines that many of us find so easy to forget about. I'm lactose intolerant, so I'm not a big fan of the 2-3 daily dairy servings. I often miss those, but otherwise I follow the program closely.

Today is Day 2 for me in the Beck Diet program. The task for today was easy for me: Find two diet plans, a primary plan and a backup in case the first one doesn't work. Since Weight Watchers has two plans, I'll just use Flex as my primary and Core as my backup plan. I know that Flex works well for me when I actually follow it, and I'm thinking of trying Core when I am maintaining and have a few extra weekly allowance points to play with.

I am absolutely determined to get this last seven pounds off in the twelve weeks of my current @ Work program. I think that's doable, especially in the summer, which usually offers a lot more opportunities for outdoor activity.

So, goals for the summer are:
  1. A complete first draft of my dissertation
  2. Get to weight goal and stay there
  3. Find some way to contribute financially to my household income in the fall, even if it's not a full-time job
Yes, of course the dissertation is my number-one goal. How crazy do you think I am?


  1. i think its great that your work has a WW program going, what a great incentive! you'll lose that 7 pounds for sure! :o)

  2. Great blog with great information I hope you can visit my website that has links to Weight Loss Programs
    best regards John
