BACK TO WEIGHT WATCHERS: Holiday Weight Plan Results

Thursday, January 18, 2024

My year started last Saturday when I crossed the finish line of my half marathon. I wrote all about it here. I originally wrote about my holiday plan here in this post

My goal was to apply the following holiday plan:

• Pre-track my holiday meal 

• Plan my workouts 

• I want to track daily

• I want to reflect on my day 

I did all of these things, thankfully. I also had multiple holiday celebrations. I just kept applying my plan to each week as they came. The results? From

October '23 to January -23 | I lost -4.6 lbs!

First weigh-in of October: 160.6 lbs 

First weigh-in of January: 156 lbs 

Since I've been a WW member, over the holidays, I lost weight 4 times, and I gained 3 times. 

Here is what I learned:

• Losing weight during the holiday is better than gaining. I get to start the year on the right path. 

• The time to decide if you are going to gain, lose, or maintain weight during the holiday season is before the holiday season starts. I voted early. I was determined to succeed. I trusted my plan. I executed my plan. 

• When the going got tough, I kept going toward the results I wanted. Instead of repeating a behavior I did not want to see, I did what I wanted to see. 

• I relied on prepping vegetables and lean protein for meals. I also prepped breakfast. I kept thinking if I ate a lot of colorful vegetables, I would feel better. I was correct. 

I am eager to start this new year focused on improving my health through consistency.
