So….This staying the same weight is a bit harder than I expected.
Even after my Weigh In 8-12-17: What Kelly Learned post you’d think I just have it all together, right?
I have to admit to you all that I fell into some bad habits last week. It is scary how fast I turned to them.
You see, I talked about how that scale is a tool that sometimes doesn’t tell the truth – that you can’t be to hung up on it.
So when I checked my weight Thursday and I was up 3 pounds….THREE POUNDS…I freaked out.
Now did I think about how I had super salty food for lunch that day and how I know I’m sensitive to salt? Nope.
I mean I went from 30 points to 36 for maintenance. At 30 points I was losing an average of 2 pounds per week. Mathematically it was impossible for 6 extra points a day to cause me to gain 3 pounds.
Yes, logically I should have shrugged it off and thought if the water weight didn’t fall off by weigh in it would have fell off by the next week.
But I wasn’t logical. I was irrational, and ate very little Friday, following the old Kelly plan. I drank and drank water.
I weighed in at exactly the same, which yay?
I was a slave to that scale, I didn’t think rationally, and I didn’t behave properly.
But I own it. I did it, it’s over, and I’m moving on.
In a lot of ways the Weight Watcher program is meant for people like me….People that like to win. It is a double edged sword though, because it can bite you in the butt when you are not winning.
All or nothing.
Now I really realize that I have much work to do, and I’m willing to do it.
