For the 2nd consecutive week I was not able to stay for my meeting. I had a long-standing hair appointment. I could have just said "oh forget it" and not even bother driving down to weigh-in, but I didn't.
Last week I lost 6.6 pounds. This week I had gained 2 pounds. But overall that's a 4.6 loss in 2 weeks which is above average and pretty much what I expected.
Not because I did anything "wrong" but because of how my body works. I went through my weight loss tracker from 2009, and the same thing happened. I lost 7 pounds my first week, then gained 3 the next, despite not doing anything differently. After that it was pretty much smooth sailing of loss after loss after loss. Some weeks it wasn't much, perhaps 2 ounces, but a loss is a loss.
What I did right this week:
I tracked everything I ate. Even the bloody Mary and beer that I had over Thanksgiving break.
I tracked my steps every single day and let my body rest a few days and overall earned a total of 48 activity points for the week.
What could I have done differently?
I don't think I could have done anything differently. But I am FOR SURE making my meeting next week. That's part of the whole reason that I signed back up for Weight Watchers. I NEED the meetings. I LOVE the meetings and making friendships and learning about people who are on their own journey.
How was your week?
