First gain

I had my first gain since joining WW. Didn't take long - I'm only 4 weeks in. But I deserved it.

  • Ate poorly and didn't journal this weekend
  • Wearing heavier (think more winter) clothes
  • Started my TOM (time of month) yesterday
  • Had dinner out at a restaurant last night which always means sodium

My goal for next week is to lose 3 pounds for a total of 6.6. Then I leave for Los Angeles for a week. THAT, my friends, is going to be a challenge. But that's a post for another day.

you know it's bad when.....

You eat like crap all weekend (yes, again!) and the damage on the scale isn't too bad. You know why? Because my body has gotten so used to too many calories and even when I've declared myself as "bad" my body doesn't react weight wise as bad as I thought because I've been feeding it too many calories!

Again, I have to get my weekend eating under control.

Weekend eating - Two Steps back

Weekends are sooooo hard when you're trying to lose weight. My weigh in's are on Wednesdays so the weekend falls right in the middle of my WW week. This weekend stunk with a capital S! I just started cheating here and there and then I was just off course and didn't look back until this morning. I have two days to clean up my act before my weigh in on Wednesday. I need to stop doing two steps back otherwise I'm never going to get to my goal(s).

Tell me, what are some ways you keep yourself in check on the weekends? Tips, secrets, plans...give it to me!

Okay, so maybe I cried wolf

Remember the kid in school who SWORE they failed the test and when the tests were returned, they got an A? Yea, well that might have been me this week. I swore I was going to gain weight. But I didn't. Instead, I lost 2 pounds on my first week of WW. I certainly was not a WW rockstar, instead I think I kinda got lucky.

This week, our leader challenged us with WW's campaign - Lose For Good. For 7 weeks, WW will match member's weight loss in dollars for every pound lost - up to a million dollars.

My goal in the next 7 weeks is to lose 11 pounds.

Who was the dummy that started WW right before a holiday weekend?

I may be the worldest first member of Weight Watcher to GAIN weight their first week. You know how they ask how many pounds you lost? One lady last week lost 10 her first week. Then the leader asked how she did it. What changed? This week, I may get to tell my class how I was the first member to GAIN weight their first week. :)

The plan for the week is to get to the STORE tonight to stock up on some healthy foods so I can LOSE my second!
