WW Confession Time

Well, my friend wants to know how Weight Watchers is going for me…
It’s going great, except I allowed myself a free day or two over the weekend and then decided I would be bluntly honest and track e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  and oh my….
I ate all my extra weekly points in two days.  
How embarrassing and how enlightening all at the same time.  
The reason I chose to follow Weight Watchers was to make me think about the kinds of foods I was eating.  As I track my points daily I see them go down and know I have to make better decisions for the rest of the day, or in this case week, to have any hope of seeing a loss.  
It’s different to see I’ve lost all those weekly points instead of just saying, “Oh, I had a high calorie day.  Tomorrow is a new day!”  
Tomorrow is a new day, but without exercise that day doesn’t have room to go off plan.  
It’s a good thing I used a lot of those calories on my favorite candies, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup minis, and a brownie or two, but still …. what an eye opener.  
But as I told a fellow blogger…I will not throw the entire week just because of an over-point weekend.  
I’m definitely learning some things here and I guess that is good.  🙂  
Now if it could please warm up a bit I’d be much more into running…another blah moment for another time.  
Bye for now!  🙂

    Leah, let it go, dont let it consume your whole week, forget it and move on.
    You've got this!

    Thank you, Syl!! 🙂


  3. That's what I like about tracking what I eat. It's not a punitive thing; it's for information and enlightenment. I only do it when I feel off-kilter, but it never fails to get me back on track, which in my case, is remembering that I'm better served by inserting an “or” in between treat options. (I can easily get into a habit of having treat 1 AND treat 2. 🙂 )

    Good for you, Leah, for using the experience positively!

    Seeing it written down really helps to see exactly where you are. Too many times you eat more and then kind of don't really notice how much it really is if you don't write it down and then can't figure out why the scale isn't cooperating. You think “I didn't eat *that* bad”. Then it turns out that you really might have eaten a lot more than you thought when accounting for everything you eat.
