In other news, WW has this new thing called the Active Link.

It's this little device you fasten to your bra strap or put in your pocket and it records your movements and translates them into activity points. I was skeptical of it, because that's basically a pedometer, or a HRM without the HRM (if that makes sense), but it was only $40 so I decided to try it. Well, it didn't work out too well and I ended up cancelling my subscription. But it did open my eyes to a few things . . .
Last week, I stuck to my daily points. I wasn’t a fan of the Active Link, but one thing it showed me was how inactive I was, even though I work out four-five times a week for an hour at a time. Even though my Active Link acted funny a lot of the time, it was consistent in reading lower numbers then the WW database gave me for any given activity. Because of that, I didn’t eat my activity points last week. Also, I didn’t eat any extra weeklies most days last week. I had a few extra on Friday and a few extra on Saturday.
Something else I realized was that I wasn’t eating enough veggies. So, I started including veggies at every meal and often times for snacks. I was also very diligent about packing my lunch every day, AND I turned down a donut. Oh yes I did.
So I basically went back to WW week one. I was on it, guys. On it. And guess what? I lost 3.6 pounds. What?! That’s the biggest loss I’ve had in a while, but I’m still not out of danger. I’ve seen this weight before and I couldn’t get past it, so I just have to be vigilant this week and stick to just my dailies again. BUT, I’m down 45.4 pounds since beginning WW, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
Clay and I are having a make-your-own-pizza housewarming party next Sunday. It will be after my weigh-in, which is good, but I have to be careful not to overdo it. I’m going to get some lean ham and fresh pineapple and make a Hawaiian pizza. Watch out, pizza world.
Weight loss this week: -3.6 pounds
Total weight loss: 45.4 pounds
