I attended the weekly WeightWatchers weigh-in during lunch today, and I'm happy to report that I was down -3.0 lbs for the week. That means I've lost a total of -28.0 lbs. since starting this program back on April 7th, 2010.
One of the greatest insights I've gained through this journey is that while the weight went on in a virtual straight line manner, my reduction efforts have followed a more erratic trajectory that's been pocked by weeks of no progress.
During those neutral stretches, I'm forced to look backwards and repeat the things I did during the weeks when I lost a lot of weight to help jump start the progression forward. That's been the trick that has worked for me.
I review my food journal entries, the steps logged via my pedometer and my daily exercise regimens to see what worked. The thing is that I know what I need to do, but it's amazingly easy to drift from the mark.
Despite that, it was a good week that I hope to duplicate.
