24.25

Just wanted to share with you my latest weight loss update. I am still losing and down 24.25 pounds in 14 weeks! Yay me!! My motivation is strong, but I need to work on a better exercising routine. Don't get me wrong, I AM walking about 3 days per week on the treadmill and I started with a little bit of weight training, plus I walk outdoors when I can. My plan is to increase my activity and keep trucking along one pound at a time.

Weight Watchers has an excellent plan, which uses a "points system". According to your starting weight, you are assigned a number of points to use on a daily basis. You can eat whatever you want, but you must stay within your daily points range. You soon find out that the healthier foods have less points value. Check out this handy WW calculator which calculates the calories, fat and fiber content to find out how many points a serving is worth. Click here.

Thanks for sharing in my joy! I will continue to periodically give you all an update on my journey to a healthier way of life.

That's amazing! Way to go! I'm still plodding along. Exercise is definitely the difficult part for me to keep up with. I'll be very motivated for a few weeks, but then I lose the drive. Glad to hear you are doing so well!
