Three In A Row

21 DaysThey say it takes twenty-one days to break a habit or to adopt a new habit.  I don’t want to say that following the Weight Watchers program is a new habit for me; I guess you could say I am renewing the habit.  That’s actually a very accurate description and evidently, it takes about twenty-one days to renew a habit as well.

As I keep reporting to you, I am remaining diligent in following the program exactly and only eating my daily Points Plus® allotment (no more and no less).  I am earning anywhere between 49-55 Activity Points Plus® per week (my goal is 49), but I don’t eat any of those points.  I knew for a long time that Weight Watchers worked and is really super easy to follow and I did great until I got impatient and decided to start “experimenting.”  I deviated from the program and guess what?  It stopped working.  DUH!!!

I am so pleased to report that for the third week in a row I am DOWN!!!  This week was a good loss too as I was down 2.6 lbs.  This makes my total weight 202.8 lbs.  My goal of being under 200 is right at my finger tips and completely possible by the end of this month.

Weight 7.18.14

I felt very proud of myself as I stepped off of the scale yesterday, knowing that I have been doing exactly what I should be doing and I am seeing the rewards.  It’s a slow process, but that’s ok.  Slow and steady wins the race, right?  I also want to be mindful of the fact that I have chosen a career in which I want to help others achieve weight loss and health success.  I truly believe the best way to lead is by example.  How can I expect to lead my clients to success if I am setting a poor example?

It occurred to me yesterday that not only do I need to be mindful of making choices that make me proud but I need to be mindful of making choices that serve as a good example to the people I want to help.  It’s also not just about the choices I make with each individual meal and snack, but the choice I make each day to follow the weight loss program I have chosen (Weight Watchers) and the choice I make each day to commit to a regular exercise regimen.

So I start my new week feeling empowered and successful with a true sense of the importance of my leading by example.  Wishing you all a wonderful, successful week!

  1. WOOHOOO! Way to go Kassie!

    It feels good when we follow what we know will work, and it indeed works. I am very excited for you. You set a fabulous example in all you do.

    Now, when someone you are working with is trying a short cut, you will have first person, objective proof of how it doesn’t work, and how sticking to the plan WILL work. Well done!

    • Thanks Bobby! It is a GREAT feeling to do the right thing and get proven results!

      Yes, I will certainly be living proof to my clients that short cuts never work!!!

  2. Congrats on your progress – you are a true inspiration!

  3. Yipeeeeee! BEST FEELING EVER!!
    I started Weight Watchers in January 2013 leading up to my April 2014 wedding. I am happy to report that I have lost 35lbs and am working hard at maintaining my new weight. Now that the wedding is over, I’m less inspired, but I keep reminding myself that I want to be healthy. I also remind myself of how hard I worked to take it off. To keep things interesting and to keep me inspired, I have started my own blog: http://sweetseatstreats.wordpress.com/
    I try to post mostly WW-friendly recipes, but sometimes a few bad ones sneak in there 🙂
    Going to the meetings is the best thing I did. This part was difficult for me at first, but I ended up really enjoying them and also getting a lot of inspiration from them. I achieved lifetime status in August 2013 and am approaching my one year anniversary … whoohooo! I still go to weekly meetings and also weigh-in weekly. I find it keeps me accountable and also sets my week up for a great start.

    • Congratulations on your success! I agree, the meetings are an extremely important part of Weight Watchers success. I can’t wait to check out your blog. 🙂
