My first weigh in after joining SP

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

My name is Bob, and I have been going to Weight Watchers meetings since May of 2010. By this last Thanksgiving, I had lost 51 lbs. However, since then, I have gained and lost about the same 3 lbs. over and over, and I still want to lose at least another 50. One of my WW friends told me that she also was involved with SP, so I thought I would look into it. I joined a while back, but didn't really get serious about looking around the site until a couple of weeks ago. I started using the SP food tracking system last week, in conjunction with my WW tracking. I wanted to see how many calories that I am eating, rather than just calculating the points+plus on WW. So far, (except for losing a fight with a box of Cheezits,) I have been more successful tracking my food both ways, and last week, for the first time in about 3 months, I posted a decent weight loss of 1.8lbs.! I hope that I can carry this momentum on this week, and break out of my plateau that I have been sitting at.
I like to meet new people, so please feel free to friend me. I live in the Overland Park KS area. Thanks for reading my blog, and I would appreciate any comments or suggestions...Bob

    Hi Bob congratulations on your loss this week, you're up and running and breaking through that plateau. I had one for three weeks and found that upping my exercise a little finally did the trick...along with lots of encouragement from my Spark friends. Do read the Spark plateau articles, they have some great advice.
    You've come so far already, just remember emoticon
