Fat to Fit #2

So I've been back on WW for a full month this coming Thursday. I'm less than pleased with my overall work for the month and know that I am capable of doing better. 

In the past month I lost a grand total of 0 pounds. Cue the tears.

When I stepped on the scale yesterday and it said I was back to my starting weight I wanted to cry. Then I was filled with rage. Followed next by tearful rage. What the hell happened?!

Oh I know. I made a major rookie mistake. Friday night I went out with my best friend and had New England Clam Chowdah, cheese fries and 2 beers. Real freakin' smart Michael. Especially the night before a weigh in.

Fortunately yesterday's meeting was exactly what I needed to hear. It was about celebrating non-scale victories. We put so much emphasis on what the scale says that we forget to celebrate the victories and successes that happen in other ways along our journey. Even though I've had a terrible first month with the scale, my non-scale victories are worth sharing.

  1. K and I developed a gym routine for me to follow. 
  2. I went to the gym 3 times consistently and have a schedule mapped out.
  3. I skipped on some foods so that I could have points to enjoy others.
  4. I tracked consistently.
  5. I attended every meeting since I rejoined WW.
  6. I have motivation again.

And last, but certainly not least...

  1. I love that we are having the same meeting topics. Makes it seem so much more personal. I really wish that we could all do a virtual weight watcher meeting!! :)

    I know it is hard to not see progress. I have had more than one week where i was actually UP on the scale. I WAS UP!! So depressing but you can't give up.
