I was not happy.
To be honest, it was the first time I had that kind of gain where I hadn't had a horrible week. I had a GOOD week. I had a lot of green smoothies, I started Booty Camp class and worked out quite a bit, and I stuck to my points (more or less...)
I've always bragged (to myself) that I lose weight even when I count weight watchers points very creatively. I don't always count things like milk in my coffee, or I'll overestimate activity points, or I'll take bites off of friends' plates, or I'll underestimate certain foods I eat. I always eat ALL of my weekly points and ALL of my activity points. But as long as I'm (for the most part) tracking everything, I'll always lose weight.
Apparently not anymore!! I think that as I get closer to a healthy weight range, it will be more difficult for me to lose weight.
I may have been disappointed with my weigh-in yesterday, but I know that in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter at all. What am I going to do, stop eating right and exercising and keep gaining? No, of course not, I'm going to continue eating healthy and try not to worry about the numbers.
That being said, I did splurge all weekend with my friends, and I did not track. But there are 5 more perfectly good days in the week, and I plan to get back on track WITH A VENGEANCE! (How exciting!) I'm going to focus on:
- the Weight Watchers Good Health Guidelines (if you're not familiar with Weight Watchers, these include drinking enough water, eating enough fruits and vegetables, having enough servings of healthy fats, etc). I'm especially going to try and drink more water.
- exercising: gym & Pilates on Monday, Booty Camp on Tuesday & Wednesday, and at least one more workout on Thursday or Friday
- tracking my food and points honestly
- GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP!
Wish me luck!
