Weigh In Results - Disaster Zone!

My weigh in was today. I was only 0.8 away from goal. Unfortunately I gained 1.6 lbs. Ouch. That hurt! After reviewing my week, I realized there were a number of factors that resulted in this gain. First and foremost, I ate too much. I snacked all the time. My main meals were fine! I actually don't think this is the only reason though.

I don't like to make excuses. I'm not making excuses. I'm just trying to assess the situation. Yes, my fault. The snacking got the better of me. But I think that my time of month is nearing and I was feeling a little...well...(sorry guys) bloated. I felt fatter. I think that had a little to do with it.

I also think a reason may have been because I weighed in on a different scale at the meeting. I hate when they have me weigh in on a different scale. There may be a discrepancy between the two. It's possible.

So my goal for the rest of the week is to really watch the snacking. I can still have a snack. But I can't binge on it. Another goal, drink mostly water. I will allow myself 1 pop this week. ONE! That's it. It just might make my stomach feel better. Mostly water and maybe some iced tea. Yum!

Now I haven't followed the snacking rule today! Apparently I don't learn from my mistakes. But from this moment on. Right now, in the middle of my Saturday, I'm making the commitment.

Wish me luck in a successful week. I'm determined to get to goal. My 3 year anniversary of being on WW is May 5th! I want to get to goal by then! Sooner if possible!


  1. Hey, Amanda. I made three attempts to post last night from my iPod but it kept getting wiped out. So I had to wait until this morning.

    You're doing great. Don't get frustrated. I remember so clearly almost a year ago when I reached goal. That last bit was such a struggle to get to. I think I needed like 3/4's of a pound to get to goal, and when I finally did hit goal, I had lost almost three pounds in a week! You'll get there. Keep doing what you're doing.

  2. I know it's hard not to get frustrated, but you are RIGHT THERE! You are so close and I know you can do this!

  3. Thanks guys! I know I can do it, it's just so frustrating sometimes when you know what you should be doing and do the opposite!
