I’m back from the road trip to Washington DC! What an amazing weekend. It was my first rally and completely worth the 24 hours of driving over the weekend. Here’s a pic of the crowd – over 250,000 people!
And happy day, I weighed-in today and was down 2.0lbs! That puts me at a total loss of 31.8lbs. Not only did I pass the 30lb loss mark, but I’ve also broken out of the 220s and offically in the teens! I am thrilled with my results this week. That’s 3 bags of potatoes worth! I can’t even imagine now walking around carting that extra weight.
During my weekend away I’m happy to report that I made smart food choices. Usually a long drive would mean chips, pop, and other unhealthy snacks. Instead I brought along grapes, strawberries, water, and some dark chocolate to share with everyone. Even while in DC I chose healthy options at the restaurants – such as salmon and rice instead of a burger and fries, or a bowl of cereal with skim milk for breakfast instead of a muffin. I even left half the rice on my plate – I forgot how big restaurant portions are in the States! I am very happy I was able to make healthier choices and still enjoy myself and not feel deprived.
I’ve also started a new challenge for the month of November on the WW forums. This one’s called Nifty in November and my goals are to lose 8lbs and do 1200 minutes of activity. You can follow my progress on the page marked Challenges in upper right-hand corner.
My final stats for Outstanding in October were -4.6/8 lbs and 1185/1000 minutes. I had a slow month for weight loss, but I’m hoping I can reach my goal of 8lbs this month since I have 5 weigh-ins (hehe!), however I’m thrilled I surpassed my activity goal and hope to get even more in this time.
