It’s late today and I’m tired and nervous so I’m going to try and keep this short.
This was a harder week for me. On the first day my mom was still here and we had McDonald’s for lunch and I chose not to choose healthfully and so my lunch meal on it’s own was about 20 points.
After my mom left, I had a harder time getting back onto the plan than I expected that I would. I think it was probably laziness because I hadn’t cooked for so long! It also was probably just part of the natural process of the luster of the “new diet” wore off and I realized that this really is about making healthy changes to my life and not just losing some weight.
I also wasn’t quite as faithful with logging my food, which is obviously important, but I think that reluctance went along with the above paragraph. What I did do though was power through it, for the most part. There were times that even though I was getting back on the Weight Watchers road I took the low-road instead of fully committing to what I should have been doing.
I also do feel like I have a better understanding of the program now. I can rattle off points and I feel like on an “average” day I know how to make this program work and it is really flexible. I’m in this for the long haul (except I’ll be taking this weekend off again!) and I’m still really happy with my progress.
Results: I lost .8 pounds this week. It’s good stuff and I’m proud of myself.
Upcoming: I did go for a long walk once this week and I’ll be walking a 5k this weekend. I’m going to go all out this weekend with food, the restaurant, the margaritas and I’m fully expecting to gain weight. I will be making up for it by losing insane amounts of stress! I’m hoping that after I come back home things will stay “normal” for awhile!
