Continued Progress

I continue to make really good progress using Weight Watchers online. I am a very disciplined person and that skill is paying off now. I released 7.2 pounds as of today’s weigh in. I have never been a fast weight loss person. When I shed my initial 50 pounds it took me over a year and a half.  I maintained that 50-pound loss for the past almost 6 years.  But despite my best effort’s I could not knock down that last 20 to 30 pounds.  Weight Watchers has helped me fine tune my food choices.  Yes, I am overall eating less but I feel really good. I have been able to keep my exercise and my training up for cross country skiing. I am allotted 28 extra points a week.  I have been really good about saving those points up so that when I am doing a long cross country ski.  I can eat extra carbs or whatever I need to fuel the distance. I am now firmly out of the obese category and well into the overweight category for my BMI.

What’s really helped me is that I take my lunch every day to work and I plan all my meals.  I very seldom eat out.  Having your own food really, really makes a difference because you know exactly what’s in it and in my case how many points are packed into the food. I’ve also refined my portions and now weigh food items when I am not sure.

I’ve only shared a little over 7 pounds but I already feel the difference in my clothing.  It’s amazing!!!


  1. Congrats on the 7 pounds!!!! Keep up the great work!!!

  2. Hi Michele. I was thinking about you the other day while cross country skiing on the lake except I have been fighting post pertussis and bronchial asthma so I am pretty limited but still trying.
    It was so nice to hear from you. My parents are not doing well so I am spending 5 hours or more a day there along with my busing and extra trips so not to much time for other stuff but I am not complaining because it's the life the Lord has blessed me with right now.
    You are doing so amazing. You have come so far in the few years I've known you.
    Take care Michele and one day I'll try and catch up on your blog and see what else you've been doing.
