Weekly Weigh-In 7/26/09

I forgot to do my weekly weigh-in post yesterday.

On July 19, I weighed for the first time in two weeks. The two weeks before that, I’d been up a total of five pounds. When I weighed in last Sunday, I was up an additional 8 pounds (272). But this week, after having been home all week and back to my low-sodium, low-fat (on program) foods, I was down 5 pounds (267). And before I went to my WW meeting, I made my meal plan for the week along with my grocery list.

I went ahead and did a three-month subscription to e-mealz.com. Each week, I log in and download a list of seven meal ideas (with recipes). I chose the low-carb option, because for me, it’s easier to substitute lower-fat items or take out what I know doesn’t fit into my plan than to try to take the carbs (breads, pastas, rice, potatoes, etc.) out of every meal on the low-fat plan. They also have plans for those who are doing WW Points, and they have plans based on specific grocery chains’ weekly specials (Walmart, Kroger, Publix, and others), for families or for two people (I got the two-person menu option and am using the leftovers for lunches).

Tomorrow, I’m going to go to the farmers’ market to get some fresh fruit and veggies to round out my meals for this week.

Something else I did was sign up for the AARP Vitality Project. NO, I am not old enough to be eligible for AARP. My mother sent me the link. But it’s worth looking into. I’ve committed to trying to get an hour of activity in every day, and . . . two other healthy living things but I can’t remember what they are and I can’t for the life of me figure out how to find them—or anything else I filled out—when I log in. Hmmm . . .

Anyway, that’s what I’m doing this week.

What are you doing to make this week healthier than last week?

    That is absolutely great Kaye, great comeback. You’re going to be on a roll now. Well done.

    This week I’m probably going to do about what I did last week. Exercise, eat on SFT plan, etc. It’s working and I’m not certain I could get much healthier. I’m going to try to get my AP up to 30, although that’s a big stretch and I haven’t made it yet. I top out at 26-28. But that’s ok, it keeps me stretching.

  2. Hey Kaye,

    Stumbled upon this blog and am so glad that I did. This week I’m adding more water to my daily intake of very little to none and I’m going to walk a mile every morning. Thanks for inspiring me to get back into taking care of myself.
