Weight Watchers Weigh In! Finally reached my 5%!!

And I just barely reached it.  Even though I've got the weight difference between my scale and the WW scale down to a science and it is always .8 lbs off, today, it was WAY off, boo!  I should have lost exactly 1 lb. but their scale said .4 lbs and it kept teetering between 190.2 and 190.4 lbs.  Anyways, the good part is I have hit the 5% mark.  I always feel like for me that is the hardest because I had to change a lot of habits.  I hope to really enjoy the next 10lbs of weight loss because it's going to be different than "I don't eat fast food 4 times a week and drink Starbucks once a day."  It's going to have to be more of, "I pushed myself really hard at the gym.  I drank all my water.  I watched my sodium and sugar intake."  But I'm excited about it.  On my scale I am finally in the 180's!!!  189 to be exact! 

I'm a little nervous about a business/vacation trip I have coming up this month.  After I'm done with business in Southern California, my husband and I will be spending 5 days in Disneyland at the Grand Californian Hotel while my parents watch the boys back home.  I get so nervous about eating on vacation.  As DH pointed out, my life still revolves around food and it's all I think about.  I'm notorious for gaining 10 pounds on a week vacation and lacking motivation when I get back to get back on program.  During the business part of the trip I'll be eating 5 catered meals in a few short days, oh boy.

I'm going to try to eat as much fresh fruit and veggies as possible at Disneyland and drink water and maybe one diet coke a day.  As far as the meals, I just have to watch portion size, make the healthiest choice possible, and pack some healthy snacks to take with me.  I've already looked at every single menu including the room service menu (we love room service!) for Disneyland and I think I can do it.  I also am going to try to get a morning work out in 4 out of the 5 days.  We shall see, wish me luck!

  2. Wooooohoooo! Congrats on the 5%! :) You're a ROCKSTAR!

    You can do vacation, easy peasy, lemon squeezy! You have a plan, now you just need to follow through. With all the walking you'll be doing, don't sweat it! :)

  3. Thanks Monique!!

    Jaime, thanks for the encouragement!!

  4. WOW BOG Congratulations Brandi!!!!!! That is FABULOUS,,

    Trust me, if you lose your 5% you can definately keep on top of it on vacation. I am very happy for you. I am just like you when it comes to food, I am ALWAYS thinking about it, even more so when I am trying to lose weight but I think the key (for me) is to make healthy choices, watch portion size and eat clean as much as possible.

    You will get the next 10lb like a breeze, I just know it!!

  7. Congrats!!! wooohoooo! Yay for any type of weight loss no matter how much! :)

  8. Way to go on you 5% don't worry about disneyland, I was just there last month. There are some decent options there. They offer fruit as sides and bring in your own water bottle they charge a fortune. And you are going to be doing a ton of walking thru the park. It should be fairly empty time of year. Have a fantastic time

  9. Congrats on your 5%!!!! Woohoooo!!! Keep up the great work!
