Sometimes it IS about the Scale

Weigh In Wednesday

Last Week's Weight: 169.2
Current Weight: 166.4
Change: -2.8
Total Loss: -61.6


I know it's not always about the scale, but sometimes it is. Sometimes you just need the validation that YES, sticking to the plan and trusting the system and working out when you don't wanna is paying off. Today, thankfully(!), is that day. 

As I mentioned to my Chicago Achievers Project coach, Dave, it's been really frustrating lately to be stuck in the 167-172 range for what feels like months. Especially when my eating has truly been better (read: cleaner) than ever before. I aim for 9-11 servings of fruits and veggies a day (I consistently get 8+), and 80-100 grams of protein a day. 

For someone who used to rely a lot on low points/low calorie Smart Ones meals, it's a big change to be eating cleaner foods! Most days I do feel like I'm eating more food, which totals about 1400-1600/day (typically with one 2000 calorie day on the weekends). The extra protein has definitely made it a little tougher to stick within my WW daily allowance (currently 28PP), but between my weeklies and activity points, I've been able to stay within range for the week.

How was your weigh-in?
