so close I could cry!!

Only lost -.6 this week and this brings me to 200.2. Darn, I thought I'd make it to 199.9 at least! I exercised 6 times last week and was in the points range though at the higher end. I really want to get to 199 and leave the 200's forever! I know it will be next week, it's gotta be. The wt loss has really slowed for November compared to all the other months for some reason. Ok, no whining! So what I will do to get at least a pound loss a week, if I can is: 1) exercise as higher intensity at least 4 out of 6 times this week (at at least 70% max heart rate), 2) Journal my points/food every day, no exceptions! 3) Throw out any crap in the house that I may eat!4) increase wt lifting to 3 times per week at least!

I'm hoping this will get me back to losing a lb a week w/ out these little losses!!! It seems the quicker I want the wt loss to happen and the harder I work, the slower the losses go. Back to turtle pace. Patience I know! I hope I can get all I want to get done this week but it's a busy week w/ field trips, 2 finals in school and my mom coming for 2 days and a play on the weekend and a party. Think I'll have to opt out of the party as I school has to take priority right now. Xmas shopping will have to wait till next week! How's everyone else handling their stress this week!!!

(P.S. A lady at weight watchers was outside in her car on the side of the ww building and put on the gas instead of the brake and crashed into the building and made a 3' by 3' hole in the brick!! She is ok though but it happened right before the meeting! Maybe she really didn't want to weigh in!)

I have been where you are and all I can say is be patient!!! There will be times when it seems the weight is coming off so slowly you want to scream. Then suddenly poof, all gone. Try not to focus so much on the number on the scale. One of my leaders used to say, that's only what you weight right now at this moment.

Keep eating right and exercising and the weight will go.

Oh my gosh!!! I can't believe that happened outside your meeting!! Wow. Glad she's ok.

Ohhh honey so close this week!!!! Keep in mind sometimes you do too much. Usually I go for the 6-7 days of exercise but eat more points, or exercise less and eat less points... I find that if you are "too perfect", sometimes the loss is slower!
