Weight Watchers Update

October 24th, 2012 at 11:45 am

I need to share. This week I dropped .6lbs. YAY for me!

First week lost 2.2
Second week stayed the same
Third week lost .06
Total 2.8

Which means I need to lose 2.2 pounds to get a 5 pound star! This week it's on like Donkey Kong!! No joke. I really want to lose 5 pounds before Thanksgiving.

Eight people (including me) from my job are doing the WW program. If we do 12 weeks of it and attend atleast 9 of those meetings then we will get reimbursed at 100%. I'm going to try to also have them do it for Jan-March 2013. Just imagine I could be swimsuit ready by next summer ...I am a dreamer!

Anyhoot - I also want to be the first from my company to get a weight loss star.

Goals to drop 2.2 in a week
1)Track everything
2)Drink water
3)Get in some activity (walking or cleaning)
4)Plan my meals out for the week
5)Do not use my Bonus Points

It's been awhile since I have last posted.
My daughter and I had a great time in NYC it's nice to be back home.

I met with my financial advisor on Friday. I'm glad I did because now I'm refocused on my game plan ahead. I started to slack off with my spending.

The 401K that I have with my work has made 16.35% personal rate of return for the past year. My job matches 6% fully vested and I get 1% of my income in profit sharing.

I had opened a Roth IRA through Sharebuilder then let it sit (need to close that!). So, on Friday I opened one with my financial advisor. I'm super excited! I will be depositing $200/mth into that account. I will need to save $2600 as I can to try and max that out for 2013.

I'm on my way. Feeling good.
