What I'm going to do about it

On my post yesterday, I promised to come back and write about my latest plans for losing weight.

The answer is: Nothing drastic, just a sensible plan that will let me average a pound a week in weight loss. I am just going to use my LoseIt app the way it was intended -- log my food right away and stop before I get into the "red zone." I even bought the book, but it's pretty basic and not worth buying unless you are brand-new to weight loss.

I'm also going to keep focusing on fruits and veggies, easy this time of year, and cutting back further on processed foods. I'm pretty good about this most of the time, but I still have room for improvement.

I am also going to try out a TOPS meeting to see if it could help provide support.

As I posted earlier, I am doing the Up & Running 10K plan this fall. I'm going to work out a new training schedule once I see what the workouts will be like.

Finally, I am going to print out yesterday's post to read when I am tempted to quit.

  1. I'm a TOPS member, but I only go for the weigh-in. I don't follow their plan and I only attend a meeting here and there. My group is very supportive, but I find the meetings that I have attended long (almost 2 hours!). It's a volunteer organization and business needs to be taken care of in order for their to be a group, so I understand why.

    In any case, it's a great alternative to costly WW...

  2. Sounds like a good plan Jen. And again so chuffed that you are doing U&R :)
