Week 3

Today was my 3rd weigh-in with Weight Watchers -

The scale said I lost 1 pound - I was pleasantly surprised by this, because this past week I have been very sick and unable to keep to my normal workout routine- PLUS this past week was ::how do I put it politely:: the week flow came into town. So, despite those two obstacles, I tried hard to keep to my 23 points a-day. It obviously works, because I lost a pound. Had I worked out and felt better it may have been even more. :)

My total weight loss so far is: 6.8 pounds in 3 weeks - It takes effort and planning but it's worth it - like they say at Weight Watchers, "Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels."

Rght now Weight Watchers is doing this campaign "Lose For Good" - For every pound lost Weight Watchers will donate the equivalent of a pound of food, up to one million dollars, to either Action Against Hunger or Share Our Strength. If you are interested you can check out the challenge here at: Lose For Good

I am starting to feel better, though I am still stuffed up and having a hard time breathing. I'm hoping this weekend it will clear up more, because I am itching to work out! I love working out- of course it's tiring, takes effort and work, but once you get into the habit of doing it, you realize how much better you feel about yourself and life in general.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go to Derby practice this week, because of how crappy I felt, so I am looking forward to hitting the rink this week and losing more weight!

Although it feels good to do what is right for your body and is of some value, this is much more important to remember and act out:

1 Timothy 4:8

For physical training is of some value,
but godliness has value for all things, holding promise
for both the present life and
the life to come.


  1. Congrats Mel on your weight loss! tomorrow is my weigh in!

  2. AWESOME!!! Did you read my old posts ever? I called it *may*keover, the whole month of may a bunch of friends and I really stuck to healthy eating and exercising, by the end of June I had lost 13lbs, and that was using my prior knowledge of all the weight watchers principles. I had that extra winter skin, which was quite a bit extra. And it's a good thing too, because Brian proposed at the end of June! It's so nice to not have to crash diet. Even though I don't do weigh in's or anything, I totally use Weight Watchers principles daily. Did you know in NYC it's a LAW to have the calorie counts up at ALL restuarant, but mainly chains? So Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Wendy's, everything has how much crap is in each item. It's amazing and totally helpful. Thanks government! :-) I'm so glad to hear how great this is going for you. It's definitely a lifestyle, not a fad.
