Broken Record

I had my weight watchers weigh in on Saturday morning. I feel like a broken record! I didn't want to go. I didn't track all week (except for the first day). I ate terribly. When I eat terribly, it's never the main meals, it's always the snacking. I just need to do some mental self talk on that one.

But I stepped on my scale before hand, convinced that it would show a 2+ pound gain! My home scale showed that I might actually lose weight this week! How is that even possible?

Well, I don't want to pi$$ off the "destiny" gods, so I just went with it. I weighed in at my meeting and low and behold...a 0.8 pound loss! Now, that might not seem like much to some of you but considering I'm below my original goal and I ate terribly, it was pretty huge for me!

So I need to re-focus this week because I will not be so lucky on the scale this week if I don't watch myself!

And I did track...on Saturday. On Sunday, I did good the first half of the day. My parents both had off of work at the restaurant in the morning. That never happens. Usually one parent works and they switch off later in the day and the other one works to close.

So since both parents were off, we decided to go to the beach. Now, it's been pretty cool around here in Chicago lately! Summer was leaving and fall was pushing in.

I loved our summer this year. It was nice and hot ALL SUMMER! That never happens around here! Some people might think it was too hot, but I figure we have cool or cold weather so many months out of the year that I like it hot sometimes.

Anyway, we reviewed the weather and even though it was going to be slightly cool, it was going to be a beautiful day. At the beach it was in the mid-70's and sunny. So beautiful!

I didn't do good with eating the rest of the day. I'm letting it go.

I'm refocusing on these next 5 days! I'll report back tomorrow and let you know how I did!

    That's a great attitude girl! Remember, every ounce counts, so congrats :) I know how you feel, though. I ate at macaroni grill the night before I weighed in...I gained 3 lbs. over night. How is THAT possible? Oh well...Just keeping focused.

  2. It's not possible Laura! Probably sodium, etc. That always happens!! Good luck!

  3. It is so easy to do. Good luck on the re-focus. I need that too.

  4. I am with you on our weather - its so nice out - didn't even mind the rain on Saturday morning.

    Love your attitude, yesterday was yesterday - just move on! :D

  5. Congrats on the 0.8! I am always thankful for any sort of loss on weigh-in day.

    Good luck with refocusing! :)

  6. well I'll give you some hand claps for that 0.8. Best I've even done is 0.5 in a week. Why is my body so slow-losing like that? (always blame it on the body)
