Weigh In 8-19-17: Lifetime WI #1

Comments 2 Standard

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?

Wrong.

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 freaked.

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?

No.

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.

  1. I’m partially dreading the maintenance time of WW. I have a little bit of time, ok probably a few months, before I’m there. But I feel it is going to be very hard to stay within 2 lbs of that magical lifetime number. So I understand how you feel. You’ll get the hang of it though. I have faith in ya! =)
