Week 17. Weight lost this week: –2.5 Weight loss in total 18.5
What a crazy week I had. This Weight Watcher’s malarky is really doing my head in! I had a couple of very bad days. It was that time of the month, Wal was away, I just felt like eating chinese take-away one day. I couldn’t stop myself from eating sticky toffee pudding cake from Costco…in the car…alone…like some addict! So as you can imagine I wasn’t feeling too optimistic as I walked into the meeting this morning. Oh I forgot to mention that I met some friends for lunch and had a to die for Thai chicken salad, a glass of white wine and finished it off w/ a warm brownie and ice cream. I’m still dreaming of that salad so although I pointed it out once I got home and it was relatively low points (it was a soy sauce based dressing) I was expecting the worse results when I stepped on the scales. As Shirley (my WW leader) said later my excuses started at the door and just got bigger and bigger!! Imagine my shock when she told me I lost 2.5 lbs!! WTH!! How can that be possible? The only thing I can figure out is that because of my 2 bad days I tried to compensate the other days. On the day I have the sticky toffee pudding cake I didn’t eat a big lunch, just some veg and dinner was rice and veg so although I did go over that day it wasn’t a huge amount.
I think I’m finally getting to understand Weight Watchers a bit more. If I do have a bad day I just need to do well the other days. I can eat anything I want just not on the same day on the same plate. Slowly slowly I’m getting there. I’m happy for the big (for me) loss but would prefer not to beat myself up for 7 days to get it! My Weight Watchers goal for this week is to try try try to stay within my 29 daily pro points so that I don’t beat myself up all week.
What are your weight goals this week?
