Weight Watchers and Spark People

I had my first productive weigh-in today at Weight Watchers. I lost 1.4 lbs this week. I think that's amazing especially because of New Years eve. I planned for it though and saved my flex points because I knew there would be challenges and I still managed to lose weight. I would like to keep my expectations reasonable at 1.5 lbs per week. If I stick with that, I will meet my goal of 71 lbs by Dec. 28, 2009.

If anyone needs help in this area here is a link to the Weight Watchers web site.
www.weightwatchers.com


I have also become a big fan of www.sparkpeople.com. Both web sites are helping me to lose this weight. Spark people also has a nutrition tracker and fitness tracker like Weight Watchers and they track all your calories, fat, protein and so forth. The people on both sites are very supportive and I'm enjoying them immensely. The difference between the two sites is, Spark people is totally free. Check it out and see what you think. I signed up for the Boot camp Fitness Challenge and believe me the video workouts are awesome. I didn't know a 56 year old overweight woman like me could kick box. It's really fun, too. I'm going to try not to let my blog become all about weight loss but I will keep this updated with my progress.

You go mom!! Awesome job! The only thing I don't like about Sparkpeople is that half the food I eat is not in there. Then I have to go and add all of the info in. Too much work!

*sigh* maybe I will try it again...

I took a long break from blogging, but decided to start again today. I can relate to the WW's issues so well, and wanting to get off of medication. Keep up the good work! We want to get backpacks for our dogs,too, because they walk crazy! Let me know how it goes.
