Finished the Assessment Week using the ActivityLink. Thankfully my leader gave us a lot of information about the program so I wasn't totally shocked to see that where I was logging 26 activity points for the week (counting a moderate level as I fit the description) the rest of the week I would simply sit on the couch as I have for the last year since becoming unemployed, the "gadget" logged me at 7 activity points.
I realize that if I am going to succeed at this, I need every tool that is available to me.
I've been averaging 1.5 lbs a week for my 8 weeks on program and am having a difficult time accepting what appears to me to be such a slow weight loss. BUT I have not felt deprived for one second, I eat whatever I want, what I want to eat keeps changing - I haven't even wanted the ice cream or candy that I'd been pigging out on when I came back to WW. For the first time I truly can envision me succeeding at getting to goal weight and staying there for the rest of my life. I have never tried to make weight loss a life-style change until now.
I have a new life ahead of me, so do you.
