or something like that. One of many good points that my weight watchers leader often makes. Wasn’t sure how/if that would apply in the case of this week’s gain because I’d been up and down over the course of the week. Well as of this evening’s scale hop (serial weigher, guilty as charged) after a lot of water, it’s all gone.
Even with the increased calories of the wings and the dressing, I knew I had not possibly gained 4lbs. I’d have exploded if I’d eaten 14K extra calories. One of the things this weight loss journey and the . . . → Keep Going: Quick gain is a quick loss

What was that I said the other day about diminishing activity points?!
MONSTER day today w 1487 calories burned, good for 14 APs. The thing is? I totally could have gone longer.
It started after my Weight Watchers meeting this morning (up point 2, totally expected after some not great food choices this week and big losses the last two weeks). It was a gorgeous day and I was trying to stretch my errands out as long as possible, i.e. the furthest Modells and branch of the library*. I had moderate success with that . . . → Keep Going: Monster AP Day
Angry Fat Girls: 5 Women, 500 Pounds and a Year of Losing It…Again
I thought about just linking to my LT review, but then the review turned into far more of a blog than a book review, so here it is. And this is a lot more streamlined then it was, and then my brain was when I read this over this weekend. It’s given me a lot to think about, and I imagine I’ll be revisiting it I like this book a lot better than I liked Kuffel’s first book, Passing for Thin. I found it flowed together . . . → Keep Going: Review: Angry Fat Girls

I know there’s a fair bit of anti-Biggest Loser sentiment on Weight Watchers. I agree and disagree with it. I agree in that BL does make some think/expect that big losses are the norm, but I disagree in that if it teaches people to eat well and responsibly, that’s a good thing. I only started watching this season, but I really got a lot out of it. It opened my eyes, but I know better than to think I’m going to lose double digits in one week. I didn’t even do that in week 1.

A real eye-opener.
I’ve been reading a number of books on food and nutrition during my weight loss journey and this one struck me because it wasn’t proscribing a particular diet but rather encouraging education. I’ve seen any number of people back on WW for the 3rd, 4th, etc. times and I don’t want that to be me. I want to learn from this WLJ and not regain it. In that respect, I like that weight loss is hard. It reminds me of why I don’t want to have to do this again.

saw this book today at the library. Sub title is “The Surprisingly Simple Weight Loss Plan for Hardworking People Who Don’t Have Time to Diet” and it was that premise that intrigued me. The website doesn’t seem like there’s any ground breaking info in there, but I think it might be some good tips for eating out, which is something I still struggle with. I like when I can control everything I’m eating, but there are times I can’t.
I’ll report back as I begin reading. Plan to start this evening at the gym. Has anyone else read it?

WOW. That’s about what I have to say about this book.
I just finished and reviewed it over on Library Thing. It was basically the best book to read in tandem with Weight Watchers for the education it provided. Yeah, I had some basic nutrition when I was in school but nothing along these lines and it was really eye opening. No, I didn’t think McDonalds was good food and I almost never eat it, but as far as recommended levels of things daily and… So much I didn’t know. It’s definitely spurred me to read further – and no, . . . → Keep Going: Don’t Eat This Book
