Weight Watchers Wednesday

Week 47  Weight lost this week: ? Weight loss in total 35.5 lbs


So I’m not going to Weight Watchers this week.  I weighed myself at home this morning and it looks like I’m up 4 lbs. HELLOOOOOO 4 lbs I lost last week! I can’t say I’m happy to see you!  To say that I am bummed out would be an understatement. I’m in a bad mood, I feel bloaty and just depressed. I went out to dinner on Saturday and had a couple of glasses of wine and some risotto.  I know risotto isn’t the healthiest thing I can eat but it’s not 4lbs of unhealthy. I stayed within my points for the rest of the week so my weekly 49 should have picked up the slack.

This is the first time I’ve stayed away from a weekly meeting but I just can’t face being confronted with the “official” news that I’m up 4lbs. I think I’ll feel sorry for myself for the next couple of hours, dust myself off and move on from this.  I so much wanted to get close to 40lbs lost this week and instead I’ve gone back- a lot!

How do you folks deal with a weight gain? I need some tips on how to get over it and not allow myself to get sucked into the f&$! it mentality and eat my body weight in Nutella. I did eat nutella this week but still stayed within my points. Maybe that’s it I just can’t have any indulgences. At least not on a week where I go out to dinner.

I dug into the hamper I received from Weight Watchers and tried one of their bagels. When I first started Weight Watchers I had a bagel with butter and jam every single morning. I didn’t know how I was ever (or even if I wanted to ) break my bagel habit. I eventually decided that the points were too high and just not worth it and I switched to porridge. I was a bit weary of trying one as I was worried I would fall off the wagon and be addicted to them again. Luckily that didn’t happen. I’m not saying the bagel wasn’t yummy- it was, very very yummy.  I would buy it again and I think it would be great with a scrambled egg and bacon medallion on a Sunday- would make for a lush breakfast.

So there you have it a totally failed failure fail of a Weight Watchers Wednesday update.  I’ll be downstairs eating a bowl of porridge trying to pick myself up by my bootstraps.

    Ooooky I’m going to ask one question then run……you premenstral? …..*ducks*.

    I can gain 5 or 6 lb in water retention on a bad week? Get some green tea down you, get out in the sunshine and remember no one will put your weight on your grave stone. 4lbs should not a grumpy lady make.

    Much love (and point counting) xxx

    I am and I usually gain a 1 lb during this time. I don’t think I’ve ever gained 4! Tis true no one will give a rat’s when I’m dead it’s just that it’s a bit demoralising. Am planning on enjoying the sun this afternoon and ungrumpafying myself.
