It’s Monday. That means it’s my Weight Watcher’s weigh-in day. I did not have a good week. I had bought my birthday cake at Costco the weekend before, knowing that I wasn’t going to be back there again before my birthday. The plan was to have a piece that night and put the rest in the freezer until my birthday, which I did. But then I kept taking some out throughout the week because I love cake and just couldn’t resist and while sometimes I’m super motivated and can resist anything, even cake, last week was not one of those times. And then there was that fabulous dinner out and other splurges. So I knew it was going to be bad, so I skipped the weigh-in and just went to the meeting. But I did weigh at home this morning and yes, it was bad. Starting December 28th, I lost 3.6 pounds by January 8th, and since then, true to form, I have done nothing but gain back 3.8. But if I have a good day today I’m sure I’ll be down a good chunk tomorrow (1.5 to 2 pounds), but my overall net loss for the month is not going to be anywhere near what I’d hoped. Sigh.
That’s the negative. The positive is that I got a Fitbit for my birthday and now I’m all motivated to move more and get lots of steps in. I also finally got gym access at work, which I think will be much more convenient and I’ll be much more likely to go than when I have to go all the way home first, eat dinner because it’s already 6:30 and I’m starving, and then try to drag myself to the Y. We’ll see how it goes.
I'm tired of paying all this money and not really trying hard enough to actually follow the plan, or even just my own plan and just use WW for motivation and support (I know what and what not to eat without tracking points). I have until late March to get my act together and get my money's worth so hopefully I can step it up! Literally, now that I have my Fitbit!
