Weigh In Day: Getting Closer

This morning I weighed in at 210.6, a new low for me! I lost 1.6 lbs. this week for a total of 77.4 lbs.  I’m very happy with that number and I am getting so close to my next 10 lb. goal!

For breakfast, I had a bagel thin topped with whipped honey nut cream cheese, egg beaters, a banana and a cup of 1% milk for 8 points.

After hubby left, I did a Pilates workout for 20 minutes. My hips, knees and legs were so sore from running yesterday. I burned 85 calories, I have to remember that this isn’t a cardio workout, but it felt good to stretch my sore muscles.

For my first break, I whipped up a green smoothie (2 oranges, 1 cup spinach) and also snacked on some cocoa roasted almonds for 4 points total.

For lunch, I had a baked potato topped with steamed broccoli and 2% Sharp Cheddar cheese for 6 points. This is so filling!

And for a sweet ending, I had FF/SF chocolate pudding for 2 points.

I got a fun package in the mail today from my sister! More Duchess Grey tea! Yay! I will be set now for my afternoon tea! Smile Thanks!!

On my last break, I had to have a cup of that for 0 points.

I also had a Blueberry Fiber One yogurt with 1/2 cup of blueberries for 1 point.

I can’t believe that yogurt is only 1 point- it’s absolutely delicious and creamy! I highly recommend it!

And I had a light cheese stick for 1 point.

I ended up getting off of work about 1 1/2 hours early- which was nice because I had some reading to get done!

I was amazed at how much the Pilates helped with my sore legs and knees this morning. My hips are a huge problem area for me and I often wonder if I have something wrong with them, so they were still hurting. But since I was feeling much better otherwise, I decided that I would jump on the bike while I read. I biked for 30 minutes and burned 106 calories for workout #2!

For supper, I had a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich and roasted veggies with olive oil for 6 points.

I had forgotten how good roasted veggies were. This was the first time roasting carrots and mushrooms and they were SOOO good! I also had onions and zucchini in the mix, which are ALWAYS good.

For dessert, I had a serving of crust less cheesecake. I made my No Bake Cheesecake this weekend and realized that the majority of the points were in the crust. So I tried it without the crust. It doesn’t set enough to serve it as a slice, but it still tasted good! I topped it with fresh strawberries for 4 points.

That leaves me with 2 points left for the evening! I feel like today was a good day. I’m trying to be more conscious about what I’m eating and am really working at getting those veggies in. I think I’m doing ok so far!


  1. Congrats, Alissa! I lost 1.6 this week, too!

  2. Fantastic weigh in Alissa!!! Way to go!! (or is that weigh to go!?)

  3. Great job!

    Nice amount of veggies and fruit today - you are rocking that!

  4. Great weigh in! 77.4 is a lot! Good job!

    Yummy food today... you give me some good ideas! Like that grilled chese & bacon sandwich! And next time I cook veggies, I'll throw some carrots in there. And that cheesecake thing too.. I remember seeing that a few days ago and thinking it looked so good but I couldnt make a whole thing for myself so maybe I'll try crustless and make a smaller one :) Ok, that is all, haha!

  5. Congratulations on the loss! You are absolutely amazing and are doing fabulous! I think I definitely need to give your potato and broccoli and cheese a try!


  6. Way to go Alissa. I am not a WW follower, but I do like the cheese cake idea. One of my favorite things to do with it is speard it on graham crackers, freeze them and eat it as a healthier 'ice cream' sandwich. So yummy!

  7. Way to go on the loss! That is amazing!

    Your food looks so yummy! I need to try a grilled cheese with bacon!

  8. I just bought my second box of Duchess Grey tea this weekend. I usually hate bagged tea but this stuff is AMAZING! I have my mother addicted to it too!

  9. Way to go on the loss! You have done an amazing job on losing weight!
    I have actually never heard of Duchess Grey Tea... is it similar to Earl Grey? I love that!

  10. Awesome job!!! Love the pics...I always gain some ideas from your posts!

  11. Great job on the loss and getting to an all-time low! Fantastic news! Cheers, Rick

  12. Oooo cheesecake! And I may have to try that broccoli potato thing.. I made one with salsa and fat free cheese with sour cream, and that was good. Wonder what else we could do with a potato.. :)

    Congrats on that weigh in!!
