Week 5. I have been doing Weight Watchers for 4 full weeks now. In this time I have lost a total of 8 lbs. Yes, two weeks ago I had a fantastic week and was down 3.2 lbs, last week not so fantastic…down 1 lb. It appears I have a good week then a not so good week then a good week again. If the pattern continues I will have a great week this week again. Only time will tell.
So sorry for not posting for a little while. Two weeks ago I came down with a cold, the flu, who knows. All I know is I was sick for 5 days. I just didn’t feel like doing much. Unfortunately it was a busy period at work and I didn’t feel I could take the time off. I did end up missing one day but I attempted to go in. My head was just so foggy that I left almost immediately. I slept most of that day after returning home. Slept or watched tv. It was the only day I allowed myself to do nothing.
Last week I was starting to feel less bloated and I loved it! This week I am not experiencing that feeling as much as I expected too. I was hoping that the bloating was gone for good and that I was beyond that feeling forever. Ha! It was only one week. One week doesn’t change forever. You have to continue making good decisions every day, every week. In my case this week, I’m sure it has a large part to do with the choice of food that I ate – pasta for lunch everyday. But I did stay within my points so I’m hoping that this will not reflect on the scale. We’ll see soon.
Today was my second meeting. There was a different leader today than there was last week. The leader today was nice but I think I preferred the lady from last week just a little more. Unfortunately last week’s lady was a fill in and today’s lady is the real deal, for this time slot at least.
I’ve completed one week! It wasn’t all that bad. I honestly didn’t think it would be. Since I counted calories a year ago, it’s very similar. So it was like picking it up again but in a new way.
I needed to make a change. I needed to try something different. I’ve lost weight before. Multiple times before. But it never stays.
I was doing good. So so good. I lost 29 lbs and was almost to my goal weight. Just 11 lbs to go. Then my birthday came. I went a little crazy over my birthday weekend. Ok a lot crazy. I ate out 3 times, didn’t care what I was eating and enjoyed my free dessert each time. It was wonderful!
Until after my birthday…
