I gained 0.8kg this week. I did everything I do in a normal week except I found it hard to drink my water as it has been so cold, so I "think" my body is holding on to it as it thinks there is a drought! I also had lunch with a dear friend today who was also a WW leader (Hi T) and after talking to her I'm thinking maybe I also didn't eat enough last week (isn't it funny I give people this advice as a weigher, yet I didn't pick up on it until I was telling someone else) .. So this week I will make myself drink water and keep a close eye on what I'm eating to make sure I'm eating enough!
I'm positive it will come off just as quick as it came on, and on another positive note, I've gone down to the next hole in my belt so it's all good. :)

Chipping away..

I was talking to the recorder at our meetings last week and she asked how far I had to go til goal.. it was then 7kg and she said.. Oh the "hardest" 7! I was hoping it wouldn't be the case, but it seems as though it might be. This week -0.4kg (and 6.6kg to go) so I've decided I'm going to keep switching it around, and make sure I don't have the same things for breakfast, lunch and dinner.. and I'm going just keep chipping away at it.. If I don't quit I have to get there eventually right? So that's what I'm going to do... celebrate every loss as every loss is a step in the right direction and just keep chipping my way to goal!

It was mentioned on the WW boards recently that we shouldn't put too much emphasis on the number that goal is, but for me it is ALL about the number! I have so many unfinished things... cross stitches, paintings, scrap booking.. This is one thing I want to achieve for ME!

Some one asked me..

How often I fell off the Wagon.. You know what?? There is NO WAGON! It's simple if I can't allow for it in your allowance you just don't have it, you have the power to say no! You just have to. If someone offers me something I can't allow, I just don't have it. I don't ruin weeks of effort to be polite. There have been times I have been to peoples houses and desserts have been offered which I simply couldn't allow for, so you know what? I said no thank you! I often bring my own yoghurt so I can have that as others are having their dessert.

It's really basic! you follow the plan and it works.. you don't follow the plan and it (sorry to tell you) WON'T. Both WW plans work IF you stick to them! It's up to you!

Not the best week.

And I know it could have been alot worse but I gained 0.3kg this week. I know exactly what I did and what I have to do this week to fix it!

I did not get out for as many walks as I usually do. I didn't wear my pedometer every day (which does make me move more!). I didn't drink enough water every day, some days I "forgot", I still don't understand how somedays I easily drink 3L+ and other days I forget to drink! I also seemed to use more weekly allowance points on sugar than usual.

So I'm starting with renewed enthusiasm this week!! I will drink my water EVERY day. I will get out for my walk at least 4 times this week, and I will wear my pedometer EVERY !DAY

Wooohoooo I made it into the 60's!! Who would have thought that hey? Me weighing sixty something! :)

Self doubt is a huge hurdle to overcome. I never, ever thought I would be concidered anything but "the fat girl" and I sometimes wonder how people describe me now.

Not looking too far into the future, or obsessing too much about the amount you have to lose, is a really big thing when it comes to losing large amounts of weight, and I guess even smaller amounts too, taking each day as it comes, accepting what happens on the scales (good or bad) and moving on (no good having a great loss and then splurging for the week!). Looking back is a far better gauge, "I've lost xkg and now I can do this this and this.." is a much better way of looking at things.

You know if you never stop going to and doing weightwatchers you will eventually get to goal?What is the saying? "Winners never quit and quitters never win" Well, this is my turn to be a winner! Who's going to join me!
