6 Week Milestone

I just finished week 6 of Weight Watchers and weighed in to see that I hit a milestone.

I was down 4 pounds this week and that takes my total weight loss to 21 pounds!

I have certainly had opportunities to jump off the wagon since I started. It really hasn’t been difficult to make healthy choices. Tonight at work, they brought in all kinds of treats to celebrate a co-worker’s birthday. There was cheese, banana bread, cobbler, and more. I was content to grab some cantaloupe, watermelon, and pineapple to snack on.

21 pounds may not seems like much, but it really is! This week, Andrew turned 9 months old and he weighs 21 pounds! It’s crazy to think about it that way. That’s a pretty substantial amount of weight. The road to my goal is a long one, but I’m going to do what I have to do to be healthy for myself and my family.

I will continue to celebrate each little milestone on my way to the goal. I am so lucky to have the support of my wife and friends as I do this again. I appreciate those who have reached out to support this journey. I will keep pressing toward the mark …

  1. Congratulations! I’ve been wanting to lose 20 pounds for the past five years, but can’t seem to motivate myself enough to exercise more and eat less. I starting walking a lot after my right knee replacement surgery two years ago, but stopped when my left foot and knee began hurting last December. Orthotic shoe inserts have eased the pain, but now it’s too dangerously hot here in the Coachella Valley to walk.

    1. It hasn’t been easy. Eating a lot of chicken, veggies, and believe it or not, eggs. All are free foods on Weight Watchers.

      My kids love walking the neighborhood in the stroller, so that’s my activity. 30 minute walk does the job. I shoot for at least 20 minutes a day.

      The heat can be an issue for sure. I try to walk in the morning or late evening. That helps a little.

      I’m not quite to knee replacement….yet. I have a feeling that’s coming. That makes it even harder.

      Small changes can make all the difference. Grabbing fruit instead of M and M’s is hard, but it’s really been the key…lol
