Week One on Weight Watchers

12 Jan

Yes, despite my harsh criticism of Weight Watchers last year, I’m back on Weight Watchers, and I am loving it! The people in the meeting are extremely supportive and very encouraging, and the leader isn’t crazy.

Last week’s recap:


6 miles ran

1 yoga class

21 Activity Points earned. Zero used.


Used 26 of the 49 Weekly Points Allowance



I am now able to run 3 miles without stopping to take walk breaks! I fully intend on running the NYC Half Marathon without any walk breaks.


WEIGHT LOST: 2.4 pounds


  • Drink more water
  • Do not eat a big dinner the night before weigh-in
  • Increase mileage to 4 miles without walk breaks



Week 1 WW

Miscellaneous pictures of me a few months ago at the same weight…



Here’s to another successful week!

    I lost 7 lbs between Christmas and New Years on Ww and now I’m trying to get back on the wagon after running the Disney Marathon and going a little crazy with the Disney Dining plan. Good Luck on your WW journey! I wish you all the best 🙂
    PS: Your dog is the cutest!

    Congratulations! I love Weight Watchers! I put on a few pounds over the holidays. I have weigh in tomorrow and am hoping for a loss after a good week. Keep it up! 🙂
