Weight Watching, Week One

Because I love alliteration.

First weekly weigh-in comes in at 314.2 pounds, which is a drop of 4.8 pounds from my somewhat-sloppy-guess starting weight of 319.6. (The 319.6 weight was on Saturday, after I'd already been on a weight-loss regimen for four days, but I was also fully-dressed, which adds around three pounds... so I just took that as "good enough to get on with" and, uh, got on with it.)

So far, very pleased! Once a few "big hit" problem foods (that I wasn't especially fond of anyway) were removed from my regular diet, my problem became not spending too many points, but spending too few. After the first day, I've been under by one or two points every day, and I make more than enough "activity points" with my dancing around the house to never be short.

Of course, as my weight goes down, my daily points go down accordingly. Yesterday I had 64 points; after today's weigh-in, I have 63... so this week I expect to be spot on for daily expenditure. Next week, assuming my weight goes down again... then I'm going to start getting into "I ain't got the points!" situations, which is where the challenge will begin.

But, that's the system working as intended-- as time goes on, you need to become more active and make healthier diet choices in order to keep meeting your goals. But you do it a bit at a time, instead of all at once, until a year later you find yourself with a whole different lifestyle and with several fewer pounds to carry around.

Lookin' forward to it. :)
