Week 1 loss: Down 3.2

I was really only expecting to lose about a pound this week. I was going to be thrilled with that, since I overdid it a bit over the holiday weekend. But I'm down 3.2.

For you Biggest Loser fans, that's a 1.8% loss. Not bad!

I am going to switch to Tuesday weigh-ins too, because this meeting was much more fun than last week's. There were about three times as many people, and there was a nice mix of ages and different stages of progress.

Since it was over the lunch hour, I stopped in at Kroger's for some sushi (Dragon Roll, which is 8 pieces of California roll plus some extra avocado, 8 points) and a nectarine (1 point). Maybe a largish lunch, but I had a strength-training class right before the meeting so I was famished.

I did get to sample a Red Velvet Minibar (1 point), which was much tastier than any other WW bar I've ever tried. Still, I am not so sure there's anything particularly healthy in those bars, so I'd rather eat real food.


  1. Great weigh-in - well done!

  2. Congrats on the weight loss!

  3. Whoo Hoo!! Congrats!

    I like to keep some minibars around when I want something sweet.

  4. A 3.2 pound loss for the week is awesome. Especially during a Holiday. I weigh in tomorrow and I think I may have found your 3.2 pounds or maybe more ;).

    Great job and I'm glad you like your new meeting better.

  5. Congrats - pretty dang good I'd say!

  6. You did great, Jen! All that running and other exercise, as well as eating healthy, paid off big time. Finding a meeting that you enjoy is very important coz if it's dull, you may be less motivated to go. Works that way for me. I agree that the bars are tastier but they're still empty calories. Real food is better :)
