I forgot to post last week! But there was good news, I lost a few more pounds with Weight Watchers.
The biggest and most exciting news of the week centered on starting the Weight Management program offered through my employer’s health insurance. This gives me a few awesome things to help the weight loss journey. One is a discounted rate on a gym membership where I’ll get to workout with a personal trainer. Two is an exercise physiologist to meet with several times during the program. Third is a nutritionist.
Last Thursday I had the initial consultation with the exercise physiologist at the YWCA. Sunday I had the baselines taken for endurance, flexibility, and strength. My exercise physiologist said I’m starting a good place with all three. And from the baseline measurements I have lost 8 pounds from the doctor’s visit on March 1st to get into the program!
The great thing about the gym I picked, there’s a swimming pool, two other locations with different equipment, and all three offer classes from kickboxing to spinning to Zumba. I’m honestly so inspired and pleased to have these facilities to workout and train with a professional.
The other big, big player in the weight loss is a major diet change. I won’t start working with the program’s nutritionist until next month, but I’ve already made changes. I have several recipes from WW and other places that I want share and review in the coming days.
The great thing about the past 22 days, besides seeing the weight melt away, is not being famished or feeling that I’m being punished.
