Reflections

I lost a pound despite a busy weekend of eating away from home and starting my period.  Plus, for the first time since I started Weight Watchers I’ve lost weight two weeks in a row.  My entire tenure with Weight Watchers has been up and down and up and down; my weight loss graph looks like a mountain range.  It can get frustrating even when you’re still at a net loss over all. I’m really happy about all that, but truthfully, the thing I’m happiest about is that I know I worked really hard this week.  Last week I set two goals, and I’m happy to report I did really well on both.

  1. Track absolutely everything.  I’ve gotten pretty lax about tracking on the weekends, and I think this is part of my stress.  If I’m tracking everything then there’s no guessing about whether I was under or exceeding my points (daily, weekly, and activity.)  There’s no room for second guessing myself and whether or not I did my best.
    I didn’t track super diligently over the weekend, but I did attempt to track which is more than I usually do.  When it comes to tracking, I always find myself frustrated and giving up when I have to start guessing at numbers.  If I’m not in charge of food prep – or I’m eating at a restaurant where the nutritional information isn’t available – then I tend to not track.  This weekend I did my best to track despite a going away party, a baby shower, and two dinners out!  My points estimates may not have been perfect, but I did something right.
  2. 2.    Get in my work outs.  I had a bad week for workouts overall last week.  This week is off to a much better start; I plan/ hope to keep that going.
    I scheduled my workouts in my new monthly tracker, and I did all of them.  I didn’t necessarily do them on the originally scheduled day, but I got them done and that’s what really matters.  I also had some really great workouts which is really encouraging after last week’s suck fest.

I really like the weekly goal setting so I’ve decided I’m going to continue to set 2 -3 goals per week.  They not necessarily going to be anything extraordinary, but whatever I feel will best help me stay on track for the week.  So here are this week’s goals:

  1. Keep tracking daily – even if it’s just educated guessing on points values.
  2. Save my weekly allowance points for Saturday.  On Saturday I have a 1st birthday party and a bachelorette party.  I know there will be a ton of food and booze throughout the day, and I won’t have control over much of it at all.
  3. No eating out except for the three already planned events: dinner Thursday night for my youngest brother and sister-in-laws birthdays, the 1st birthday party, and the bachelorette party.

This coming week is definitely going to be a challenge, but I really want to see that 154lbs on the scale next week so I’m going to do my best to really focus.

  1. woo hooo!!! This is awesome. You are doing fantastic!

    I somehow gained the pound you lost this week, and I have no idea why, because I track everything I CAN. On weekends when there’s social gatherings/eating out, I try to guess points values, and apparently I’m sucking at it since I gained a pound. Getting SO MAD!!! 🙁
