Whew!

Good thing I was not complacent. However my attempts to "do more" turned into an average week. A 0.8 loss is nothing to sneeze at and I am certainly happy. In fact as long as I keep the scale headed in the right direction I am cool. So what of my challenge to "do more"? Well......

Life gets in the way and I guess that is why it is a lifestyle. I think that is something new I am picking up on. When I early in the stages of weight watching I would watch everything so carefully and then I started to work out religiously. I would not let "life" get in the way of eating right or working out. That has changed somewhat as spring is turning to summer. I find myself learning that at times life does get in the way and sometimes your not going to eat right and sometimes your not going to get that workout in. I think that key is making sure that you don't let those habits take over. Make sure you eat right and track your intake as much as possible. Make sure you get to the gym or out for a walk or a run as much as you can. But if you let weight watchers and your quest to lose weight get in the way of your life then it is a diet.

So does that men I am getting complacent? I don't think so. I still have a long way to go and I know how to get there. I think it means that my understanding of the peaks and valleys of weight loss is being clarified.

I agree, life does get in the way and you have to constantly tweak your diet depending on the situation.

Even if you have weeks where the weight loss slows down or life gets in the way I am wayyyyyyy impressed by the fact that you have lost nearly 100 lbs since January and you are now at about the same weight as me (I am just over 300 lbs).

You are on my blogroll and I look forward to reading more about your progress.

best wishes,
