Week four weigh-in brings with it a physical and emotional recovery from Hurricane Florence. By God’s grace, my family didn’t suffer any losses or damage from the weather, but our thoughts and prayers are certainly with those who did.

Isaiah 43:2 says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. (ESV)” This verse records a promise that God made specifically to Jacob, but it shows His power to protect and keep safe those He loves during times of trouble – which He certainly did for my family and friends and for which I am grateful.

My local Gold’s Gym, which is also the Weight Watchers location, did not fare so well, however. It was flooded and had to close for a week. Because of that, my workouts were non-existent and there was no weigh-in. The pool in our neighborhood, where I had planned on making up some workout time, was also closed due to the hurricane.

I didn’t do so well at prepping my lunches last week, either, but the good news is I still had meals from last week’s dinner meal preps left over. And, even though I ate out a few times, I tracked everything as best I could and managed to stay within my points range.

At this week’s weigh-in, I was down 3.2 lbs making my total weight loss 13.4 lbs!

This week’s meals are as follows (all SP’s are based on a single serving size):

Breakfasts:
  • Oatmeal ¼ cup (sweetened with stevia) – 2 SP
  • Banana – 0 SP

  • Roasted Chicken & Potatoes – 4 SP

  • Crispy Pork Chops – 6 SP

I hope to get back into the swing of working out this week as well.

In spite of not planning and prepping as I normally do, being aware of what and how much food I ate at restaurants was important for sticking to my weight loss goals last week. Planning ahead on what to order, not eating everything on my plate, and tracking everything I did eat helped me stick to my plan.
