Thursday was the one month mark since I started Weight Watchers and I was down a respectable 6.2 pounds. But today was my WW weigh in and unfortunately I'm only at -4.2 by their records. I get weighed at noon so I a) am fully dressed and b) have eaten one or two meals and drank lots of water and coffee. Plus, like most weekends, I probably gained a little bit. I hate weighing on Monday, but on the other hand it helps to keep me from going too crazy on the weekends.
I'm a little frustrated that at 5 weeks in I still haven't got my 5-pound sticker. I mean, all of my 4.2 loss was in the FIRST week, and since then I've just been bobbing up and down. Here's how it breaks down:
Day of first meeting I weighed at home. Went to the first meeting and had first official weigh-in. Exactly one pound more than at home.
Day 2 - reweighed at home and was down 2 pounds.
Day 3 - weighed again and was down another 0.8.
Day 5 - weighed again and was down 1 more pound.
2nd WW meeting (Day 8) - At home down another 1.4 for a total of 5.2, but on their scale I was down 4.2.
Day 11 - down 1.8.
Miss WW week 3 due to vacation.
4th WW meeting - Up 1.8 pounds at home, I think 2.something at the meeting.
Next day - reweigh at home, down 1 pound
Next day - down another 1.2.
5th WW meeting (Aug. 3rd) - didn't weigh at home, stayed the same on their scale.
Aug 6th, one month in - down 1.2 for a total loss of 6.2. Grrrr. Totally could have been 8 or 9 pounds in not for vacation and just my normal slip-ups.
Today, 6th WW meeting - didn't weigh at home, down 0.8 there putting me right back to -4.2 where I was after week 1. I just went in a big circle! But I'm pretty sure if it weren't for WW I would have gained back all of the 7 pounds I initially lost instead of just a few.
I WILL get that 5-pound sticker next week!
