Weight Watchers Update: Week 8

It is my eighth week on Weight Watchers, and I'm feeling good today because I had my weigh in last night on the Wii Fit and today I got measured after a whole month. The past month has definitely been much harder to loose weight, but the results have paid off.

To date, I've lost 9 lbs, that is -2 from last week. You say "Oh well that isn't much over a 2 month period". I agree, but I've lost inches too. I am afraid if I loose the weight at a faster pace then I will gain it back even faster. I don't really find that the diet tricks or quick fixes work, plus it isn't good for your body to just drop 15 pounds in like two weeks; it's just not healthy. I have a friend who just started the South Beach diet, the first week you cut out carbs, especially white flour, like rice, bread and pasta. Now she could of been exaggerating, but she said she lost 10 lbs in one week! I was like wow that is alot, doesn't seem healthy. I think going at a moderate pace of dieting and exercise is the right way.

For exercise, I am still continuing to do the Wii Fit but I finally made it back to the YMCA! I am a huge fan of the elliptical machine; gosh and I can't get enough of those 2 month old celebrity gossip magazines they have there too. I am looking forward to this weekend, because my parents are moving, so plenty of working muscles I look forward too.

T H E    S T A T S   T O   D A T E:
Right Upper Arm: -.5"
Waist: -3"
Hips: -1.5"
Right Thigh: -1.5"
Bust: -1.5"
TOTAL Inches Lost: 8"

Originally my goal was to loose 20 pounds every two months; this would be ideal if I was on "The Biggest Loser" or could workout 24/7, and I would love that too but hey not enough time in the day. My body is going at a slower rate than expected, plus I may have slipped up and ate a couple cookies here at there. I have pushed to loose 20 pounds by end of March, I really have to work harder to reach my end goal weight of 165.

~ My new favorite sweet treat is Cherry Pomegranate 
Crystal Light On the Go packs for bottled water. These give boring bottled water a refreshing taste plus it suites your sweet tooth. 10 Calories, 0 WW points

~ I also just started eating South Beach diet Fiber Fit S'mores Bars. If you aren't a big fruit person these are great because they are 36% of your daily fiber intake. The cool thing about these fiber bars is that they have a fiber rating system that can slowly help you build your fiber intake. These bars are actually level 2-3, just watch out cause the more fiber, the more farts. 120 Calories, 2 WW points

~ When you need a little kick in the butt / motivation when your on your last 5 mins of the treadmill, I would suggest adding "Gonna Fly Now (Theme from "Rocky) by Bill Conti or Eye of the Tiger to your playlist, need I say more.
