This is the end of Week 8 of the BL DIVA Challenge and also time for my weekly blog. Not that i'm real crazy about blogging as I've said before but do it anyway!! This past Wednesday was the first weigh in on Weight Watchers under the new program. I didn't think I would like it as I'm set in my ways and have been doing WW for many years and didn't particularly want to learn the new points plus. But I did it anyway and the scale went down. I lost 4.6lbs!! Now Spark counts that as 5 and I will take whatever help I can get!!!!!
Having this jumpstart has made me more focused on doing my cardio and strength training this week and also has helped me make better food choices. I'm eating lots more fruits (they are free now) and most veggies too . So there is no excuse for not eating healthy!!!
Tonight Hubby and I went to Applebees for dinner and they are so wonderful to have several WW dinners with the Points Plus right there. Thank you Applebees!
So here's to another week and once again I have to thank my Spark friends who are so encouraging and helpful. I have several close friends who are on WW too and it is even more supportive!!!!
I love your blog. You should be so proud of yourself for jumping right into this new program. There are some women at my meetings who are still fussing over the new program. They just can't let go of their old ways. You are so amazing in so many ways. Thanks for being such a support to me on my WW and Spark journey. Some days knowing you're in FL cheering me on helps me make good choices. Keep up the good work and good luck with this week's weigh-in. We can do this!
You have every right to be extremely proud of yourself! That is a lot of weight to lose and for the record, I think you should blog more often as you have the gift of writing that makes it feel like you are sitting down to have a chat with us all.
Sandi, first of all congrats to you! And thanks for taking the time to blog about your week. I too have taken to blogging just once a week, as I need to manage my time on the computer. I find it works quite well -- sort of a summary of the week's happenings. Keep up the good work!
WOW THAT IS SO GOOD SANDI:) I AM SO PROUD OF YOU AND I WISH I COULD GO TO A WW HERE. I JUST CAN'T FIND THE TIME TO DO THAT AND EVERYTHING ELSE I HAVE TO DO RIGHT NOW. HAPPY FOR YOU THOUGH:)
