Official "Thursday" Weigh-In

Here's a hint: if it's Friday when I get around to posting, it's not normally good news.

Because after a bad weigh-in, I normally go home and walk around in a pity-induced daze. I know I shouldn't let those numbers on the scale get me so down, but I can't help it. I've got to get away from measuring my mood by where those sliders landed on the scale.

Anyway. As you can probably ascertain, I didn't have a good weigh in. I gained another 1.5 pounds this week. That's two pounds over the past two weeks, people.

This is not meeting my goal of maintaining over the holidays!

So, I now weigh 158.5. Again.

On another note, I got an email from someone who saw my site somewhere, and she recommended this article on so-called negative-calorie foods. I'm not sure I subscribe to the negative-calorie theory, but eating more fruits and vegetables can't hurt.

Neither can actually drinking my water, which I didn't do this week - darn you, Coke Zero and cold weather - but which I've resolved to do full-force this week.

I joined! I'm not sure I'll do any posting of my weight on the internet but I give myself points for joining before the holidays. Maybe I'm just dumb as rocks! Anyway, do what you know to do but enjoy the holidays! :)

You go girl! When I first started WW, I went somewhere where I was offered Girl Scout cookies.

"No thanks," I said. "New Year's resolution."

"How do you keep those?" this person asked.

"I started in August."

You aren't dumb as rocks - you're preventing damage before it starts!

I am sending you internet hugs for a great weigh in next time. And you know what? Gaining a pound or two is nothing compared to the people who are gaining your wisdom and honesty. I think you're doing great. And of course, good luck. I have to lose the last five and it is haaaaard. I'm not there yet. I'll do anything to lose weight, except diet and exercise.

Melissa said...

Yeah, that diet-and-excercise thing gets us every time, doesn't it?

Actually, like most folks, the diet part isn't so hard. I have to eat. It's the exercise part I hate. Because I don't always have to move.
