I was very happy to go to Weight Watchers this week. I knew I lost weight. And boy did I! I lost 5.2 lbs. That might seem like a lot – but I was up .6lbs last week. And I did everything right last week – except exercise. I didn’t move a whole lot. So, I’m thinking the previous week was caused by bloating. So maybe I did lose a little that week. Who knows. But the scale says I lost weight this week! And I’m feeling pretty good about it.
I’m not feeling so great about how I look. I seem to be losing weight in my already skinny ankles. I’ve always been blessed with shapely legs for a fat person. So I didn’t need to lose weight in my legs. I need to lose it in my mid section. I’m apple shaped. And the last 2-3 years I’ve gained this fat roll that starts under my boobs and goes to my waist. It’s like a muffin top without anything being stuffed in the muffin tin part. My waist is smaller than this fat roll. I want to lose that weight. So far my clothes don’t feel any different. Well – my socks do. Seriously.
One thing I found interesting at our meeting today – we were talking about eating out with friends and “food pushers” – and someone suggested telling your friends you were doing Weight Watchers and you didn’t need to eat that ooey gooey cheesy goodness thing. And several people piped up “Oh, I don’t tell anyone I’m on Weight Watchers” – like it was some shame to be losing weight. I figure, my friends already know I’m fat. At least now they know I’m doing something about it.
This past week I focused on moving more. I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes on Wednesday, Friday and Monday. I didn’t walk much this weekend due to a cut on the bottom of my foot.
So here is this week’s progress report. Yesterday (Monday on the chart) was a bad day – I just couldn’t face eating another chicken breast. I’m in desperate need of something new to eat. And look – an activity point sneaked in there! Friday’s supper was mexican food date night, and Saturday’s lunch was a steak craving. I totally pigged out those two meals, yet didn’t even use all my weekly points.
