Weight Watchers' Weekly Weigh In

Today was my first weigh in day since joining Weight Watchers' last week.  Just before leaving for the meeting I thought to myself, "I'll be happy if I've lost 2.5 lbs.  That would be great."  I went confidently to the meeting feeling like I just KNOW I lost 2.5 lbs. I tracked my food, I worked out..this was a good week.  Well, I get to the meeting, take off my sweater and my shoes and I hop on the scale.  I don't even ask what the results are.  I'll just glance in my booklet once she hands it back to me, again confidently knowing that it's going to be 2.5 lbs down.  Just as I was about to grab my book and walk away, she smiles at me and says, "You lost 4.8 lbs this week.  Good for you!"  What???  Did she say 4.8.  I open the book to confirm and sure enough 4.8 lbs down!  Yeh baby!  Today is a good day!

The meeting was fun.  We focused on eTools, which I credit for having such a good week.  I use the Weight Watchers' eTools for tracking my food and my activity.  Of course, eTools are the online tools available to subscribers to help you stay on plan.

I've just started using the eTools but here is what I like so far:

  • Easy tracking of my food and calculating my Points Plus Values used and available.
  • I don't have to keep up with paper tracking.
  • I can save foods to my favorites which makes tracking even easier.
  • I can track my activity and it calculates any Points Plus earned.
  • I can build recipes and meals and save to my favorites.
  • I can chat with others on the plan
  • I can search for recipes to try.

Now that we've had this meeting I'm looking forward to learning more about eTools and trying out:

  • The cheat sheets to learn more about Points Plus values of restaurant foods.
  • I am going to start my Weight Watchers' Blog
  • I am going to try out the Progress Reports which reviews what you've eaten and gives you tips for success.

Not only did I drop 4.8 lbs, I get to spend time playing with eTools...which is a good use of time.  They help me to stay on point and keep me engaged with my progam!  Yay!

Have a happy, HEALTHY weekend everyone.  Hey and while here don't forget to check out the Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop above.


  1. Great job! Keep talking...I'm getting motivated. Is the Turkey recipe you highlighted really good? I think I want to try it.

    Now, what's next week's goal?

  2. Congrats on the loss, great start!
