Let's Lose It Lubbock: Week 3

Weight watchers Week Three: The bad news is our Weight Watcher group last week was so crowded and noisy that this time we've been moved to a cold, crummy corner of the station where Christmas is turned off, 4th of July floats sit and collect dust, and two faces from TV history quietly rest in peace.

The good news is after we step on this scale today we step into the studio for lunch. The lesson for our Weight Watcher's team this time is that you can eat out and still lose weight even if it's fast food.

Take McDonalds, for example, since they brought every example from the golden arches and we figured the points, according to Weight Watcher guidelines. From salads to parfaits to burgers and chicken nuggets the message is clear. Eat what you want but moderation is the key.

Big thanks to McDonalds for lunch!

We need to welcome a new member to our group, Judge Drew Farmer.

Teena, our Weight Watchers Instructor, says we can all lose if we use a three point plan when we dine out: stop, rest and assess. Stop means when you get your plate, stop and cut your meal in half first. Eat half, then rest a while. Then assess how you feel.

It worked for Clay, he lost five pounds and so did Mrs. Hankins.

So, how much did we all lose together this time? Our Weight Watchers group lost a total of 33.8 pounds. That means that in three weeks we've lost a total of 94 pounds!

But, what happened to Kevin Overstreet? "I gained three pounds," said Kevin. Why does Kevin get a sticker for gaining weight? "We give bravo stickers cause it's hard to admit you had a bad week and tell the truth," said Teena Beadles.

It's the Weight Watcher way to just try again every time you put something in your mouth.     

Let's Lose It Lubbock
It's estimated that half the people in America make the same New Year's resolution to eat healthy and lose weight. So, NewsChannel 11 decided to kick-off the year with a challenge called "Let's Lose It Lubbock."
