Fitness Friday Update #8

My last update was the end of June- time to get serious again about my health!

What I've been doing:
I have to admit that while I did watch what I ate during my summer vacation, I also threw all cares to the wind when it came to food and vacation time. While I was up north with my family I ate whatever I wanted. That would include: chocolate candy bars, marshmallows, a whole bag (eaten over 3 days) of Cheetos, a greasy but oh so good Patty Melt, alcohol, and whatever else sounded good. I also need to fess up and tell you that I did not work out once...I didn't even walk one lousy mile!

Weight Watchers and Me:
I'm still doing WW, but I was very lax with myself over the summer. The hardest thing about having my summers off is that my days are not structured the way they are while I'm at work, so I found myself often at the fridge looking for something to eat. This was my first week back to school and I'm very thankful for it because staying within my points has not been hard to do.

9/10/10: weigh in is first thing in the morning, as soon as I get my number I will update this post! I'm pretty sure that I'm either still at 153 or a bit less. I don't feel like I've gained any weight but I guess we'll just have to wait and see...........the suspense is killing me!

  1. You're doing great!! Now that summer is over, it's time for me to get serious again, too...

  2. I tend to let go starting Halloween I totally get it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. Hey, if you maintained over the summer, it's all good, in my opinion.

  4. I took the summer off of strictly watching my eating, but not exercise. I know I did not stay the same! Back to work for me too!

  5. I think you are doing wonderfully!! Don't knock yourself for eating what you wanted over vacation and the summer. I bet you got more exercise than you think. Keep at it, Tootsie, you're doing fine.

  6. I think you are doing wonderfully!! Don't knock yourself for eating what you wanted over vacation and the summer. I bet you got more exercise than you think. Keep at it, Tootsie, you're doing fine.

  7. I think vacations should be fun, and if you didn't gain any weight, all the better!!!

  8. So this is just a tease post with no weigh in?! I went in for my 32 week check in yesterday and found out I've already gained 30 pounds :( Not good.

  9. Keep up the good work, it can be tough sometimes

  10. Summer is so hard so congratulations for trying to stay focused. I fluctuate 3-4 pounds daily/weekly with my running, it's so sad when I'm up 4 pounds and I'm trying so hard.

    Weightloss was so much easier in my 20/30's...

    As soon as I find 30 minutes this weekend I will be posting a virtual 5K - I hope you sign up :)

    You can walk, jog or run...and there will be prizes!

    Have a great weekend.

  11. Staci....That is awesome considering all your vacation eating and no exercise WooHoo! Great Job!

  12. Congrats on staying the same. That is an accoplishment in and of itself. You're doing wonderfully. :-)

  13. Way to go Staci!! You did so well, you are an inspiration to all. Keep going with confidence.

  14. congratulations-and keep up the good work.

  15. You're hanging in there! That's amazing.

    I have been so bad about the workouts, and haven't watched my intake as much as I was...I'm afraid to get on the scale!

  16. You've really done well losing weight Staci! I think maintaining over the summer is a great accomplishment!! I'm with you, I have found WW to be the best way for me to lose weight in a healthy way. It's easier now that I've gone back to work as I'm away from the snacking! I may join online, going to meetings is hard to fit in. Are you doing WW online or on your own? Your posts are inspiring and I hope that you continue to share your progress with us.

  17. Wow, if you were off the program and managed to stay even you did GREAT!!!

  18. Yeah! At least you maintained your weight and didn't gain anything. Congrats!

  19. I am a WW lifer that fell off the wagon. I know how to get there (did it twice) but can't seem to stay there. I am back at meetings though and using my food allergies as an excuse. I know it can be done, I am just really not wanting to do it.

    You, on the other hand, are doing quite well.
