Enter Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers Anyone?

I wonder how many blogs have a Weight Watchers (WW) posts in them this January?  I’m so cliché!  Actually, I joined back in September of 2012 – I just haven’t blogged about it.  This post is proof that it is working, though, because I only seem to find the energy and interest to blog when I’m losing weight and feeling good!  I’m enjoying my journey into the world of WW.  I have a great Leader and I really enjoy the process of re-learning things I’d forgotten and learning things that I hadn’t taken the time to learn in the past.  I’m finally building healthy routines instead of just losing weight.  In many ways I’m actually kind of living as though I’m maintaining as not much will change even when I reach my goal.  I feel very healthy right now.

My Recent Weigh-In Numbers:

My WIs have been very positive and considering I took a week-long vacation and went through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.  I think I’m losing at a good pace.  So far I’ve lost 28.6 pounds in 14 weeks.  It’s looked like this:

Start Weight 263  09-26-12
W1   -7.6      255.4
W2   -1.4      254.0
W3   -6.0     248.0
W4   -1.8      246.2
W5  +0.4      246.6
W6    ~ vacation ~
W7  +2.8      249.4
W8   -2.8      246.6
W9   -4.6      242.0
W10 -1.4       238.0
W11 -1.8       236.2
W12 ————–

Bikram, Sweet Bikram:

As of January I’ve returned to my Bikram Yoga practice.  I so love to hate it and want to really master it but “Oh My God!” it’s hard.  I’ve been searching and searching for someone out there with a blog that combines a Weight Watchers journey with a Bikram journey but haven’t had much luck…

I’m off to a really strong start as I get re-acquainted with the heat.  I’ve gone to 9 classes this year and have been getting really close to doing two of every pose in the 26 pose series.  Today I did all of the floor poses.  I was quite proud of myself.  The instructor delivered his dialogue as fast as an auctioneer or horse race commentator – it’s FAST!  I love it because I don’t have anytime to let my thoughts wander or get negative.  I’m loving it so far.  I have to be careful to not set myself up to “fail” by trying to go too often or take on a 30-day challenge.  Last time I did that I had a couple of bad classes and got so down on myself that I quit.  Yes, I quit too easily last time.  After that EVERYTHING fell apart.  But that was then and this is now and now is good so I’m going to focus on now.

Yep, Now is good.

They say that muscle is heavier "by volume" than fat is, which means 5 lbs. of muscle takes up less space than 5 lbs. of fat within a body. I'm a believer. This totally explains how your clothes begin to fit better even though the numbers on the scale aren' t moving very fast.



This is GROSS. I know. But I'd rather see the fat HERE than on my body...


Each time we “resist” an urge to fall off plan or not exercise we strengthen our “resistance muscle” and each time we “give in” to temptation we strengthen our “give in muscle” making it easier to either "resist" or "give in" next time.
