HYC - check in

This has been a really good week. I upped my activity quite a bit (thanks to the beautiful weather and my new Wii Fit) and stayed within my points all week. I did not eat any of my flex points this week and only a couple of my activity points. I have not seem much movement on the scale though. If it don't see a loss at my official WI tomorrow I think I will try eating my flex points this week and see if that kicks my metabolism up a notch. It is hard to believe that you have to eat more to lose more, but I think my body needs some fuel for this extra exercise.

My activity point breakdown for the week was:

4 hours wii fit (9)
10km walked (8)
1 hr deep h2o jog class (3)
3km swam (6)

That is 26 points for the week - 6 more than my previous best week! This week I will try for the recommended 28.

I really feel that I have come a long way in fighting my cravings and urges to binge.. I keep my house filled with healthy snacks and dont allow the junk in, but when I am out or at work temptation is everywhere. A little voice in my head is constantly saying.... what do you want more, that chocolate or to be thin?? A greasy burger or to fit into 'normal sized' clothes? A bag of chips or to have the energy to fullfill some life long dreams?

For now the voice is winning!! Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!!!

Good for you on the Activity Points. Keep up the good work.
Don't forget to indulge every now and then... It's important not to drop everything or chances are this wont work. When I have extra points I indulge on the things I am craving the most.
Since being on WW I have HAD to go to McDonalds once or twice for a burger to blow points at night.
Last week it was Subways Meatball Sandwich. I had been craving it for weeks and weeks and I had the spare points so I indulged. That craving is gone and I feel great!
Thin people indulge too, they are just accountable :D
Think Thin!
Good JOB!
