This week, at my weekly Weight Watchers meeting, we talked about something new. Well, it isn’t new to WW but it is new for those of us living in Georgia.
We were introduced to the ActiveLink.
Before I tell you about this little gem, or missing link, as my WW leader calls it, I NEED to tell you about my weigh in.
So, last week, I knew I had a big weekend planned. I knew all week that this weekend I would be eating out several times and celebrating my brother’s big 4-0 birthday (cake!). So, all week I was really good. I ate salads for lunch and lots of fruit. I tried to incorporate a simply filling food into every meal. I felt well prepared for the weekend festivities.
Saturday we went to dinner at Flip and of course, I had a burger, some fries, and 1/4 of a milkshake. Then, on Sunday, I ate steak and baked potatoes and cake and ice cream.
So, needless to say I was a little scared to go and weigh in on Monday night. I did weigh Monday morning and it only said I was up 0.4. So, that made it a little better. I was still scared to go and weigh (I even considered NOT weighing in). I decided to just do it and face the music. I am so glad I did:
Yep. Exactly the same. Now, don’t let me lead you astray, I probably did gain 0.4. However, when I took of all my jewelry and my socks (yes, my socks!), it evened out. YES!
So, at this meeting we talked about our new ActiveLinks and what they do. I will give a full description after I have taken time to see how it works. I do know that you wear it all day and it keeps track of how active you are. I am currently in the midst of an 8 day evaluation of my current fitness. After that, they will give me a goal to reach and it will start calculating my points plus for me. Cool, huh?
The downside is it costs $49 and then an additional $5 a month for monitoring. BUT…if it works, I think it will be well worth the money. Stay tuned.
On another note, only one more week until Thanksgiving. This last week, the challenge is to write down one REASON a day to get healthy. What will you LOSE (other than weight) if you lose weight? This one should be a fun one!
Have a great week! Let’s make this a successful week before the holiday!
