Upping my water intake with Weight Watchers daily motivation water bottle

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I’ve been a member of Weight Watchers since January 2012 and currently volunteer at meetings, helping the coach set up the room, handling cash and card sales etc.  One of the newest products available are these daily water bottles or motivation bottles. They come in blue and a dark pink – I have the blue one myself and have just been using it just under a week after getting it last Sunday. I wanted a new bottle for work. I had been re-using plastic water bottles but found Read More…

Healthy snacking with Weight Watchers chocolate selection box 

I’ve been following the Weight Watchers plan since January 2012 and got to gold (my goal weight) the following September. I managed to maintain my goal weight until March 2015 where I put nearly all the weight I’d lost back on! 🙁 I’m on back on track and volunteer at meetings, helping the coach set up the room, handling cash and card sales etc. As such, I get to see new products when they’re put out for sale and one of the newest products is the chocolate selection box.  Each selection box includes 4 of the Weight Watchers treat bars Read More…

Weight loss and fitness – one month in

It’s been a nearly a month since I started my new weight loss / healthy eating journey. I started back at Weight Watchers in the first week of January and had my first weight in where I found out I’d put on half a stone over Christmas! Since then I’ve been following the Smart Points plan religiously, only going over my daily points allowance twice. Weight Watchers believe in 80:20, i.e. if you’re good 80% of the time you will still have a weight loss but it will take longer to get to your goal. So far I’ve lost 3lbs Read More…

Goals for 2017

There are a few things I want to accomplish throughout the next year or two, some are things I used to do that I want to get back to and some are new things I want to try. Get back to my goal weight.  I reached my goal weight in September 2012, having started a healthy eating plan in the January. In early 2015 I began comfort eating and put nearly all the weight back on again! Six months ago I was a few pound short of my goal weight then a few stressful things happened in my life and Read More…

2012 – year review

I wanted to write this post before the end of 2012 but having a stomach bug but a damper on that idea, so I’m writing it now (this post was also going to be my goals for 2013 but the post got too long – that post will follow. 🙂 ) I’ve seen a few of my friends blogs review their past year categorised by month and decided to steal that idea. I’ve decided to focus on the main points that happened in each month. January I started off January by joining weight watchers. I didn’t set out to loose Read More…

Got to Gold – Weight Watchers

I’ve been away a lot – travelling mostly and going to VW shows. So, I’d not been to a weight watchers meeting in 5 weeks. Tuesday was my first weigh-in since beginning of August. I went there expecting one award (my 4th silver seven, which you get for every 7 pounds you loose) – which I got but what I didn’t except (although hoped for) was to get GOLD! Gold is the term used when you reach your goal weight with weight watchers and Tuesday night that’s exactly what happened. 🙂 Now I’ve got to gold, I get a certificate, Read More…
