I almost got kicked out of Weight Watchers yesterday. I talked to the leader when my meeting was over to ask for her advice on how I should proceed with my program to lose weight. She saw that my doctors goal was 210 pounds and she had a small panic attack. She told me that I was not allowed to be more tha 5 lbs under my doctors goal. I found this amusing. I ended up losing one pound last night and was relieved to finally get a loss. Here is what she recommend that I do:
- Eat all my daily points at the maintenance level. This is 35 points for me.
- Eat all my weekly 35 points
- Leave my activity points alone unless I get more than 8 in one day. On these days I should eat some of my activity points for that day to keep my metabolism up and running. She said that Weight Watchers recommends this if a person gets more that 8 AP’s in a day.
So my plan worked for this week. I have never lost weight on the weigh-in directly after a marathon so I predict a weight loss next week also. I ended up eating about 7 of my AP’s for the week actually but that left me with exactly 34 AP’s uneaten which adds up to 3400-3500 calories which then translates into approximately 1 pound. It all made sense and it worked out as I planned it would. I will stick to the same plan this week. We will see what happens.
Back to the story about getting kicked out of WW. As I said, they all had a panic attack because it was the first time they noticed I was way under my goal weight. I told them my personal goal was 178 but they resisted it really hard at first. They finally gave in though when they realized that the WW upper limit goal weight is 195 for my category. They decided I was ok and that they would use that weight instead of my 210 doctors goal. The doctor actually set my goal weight at 155 which would mean that i need to still lose 33 pounds. HAHAHAHAHAHA 🙂 That is insane and I told him so. That is way to skinny so he gave me 210 so that I could get lifetime and not have to pay more easily. I weighed 187.2 last night. I want to lose 9.2 lbs more and then hover around that 178 mark for as long as I can.
