After my awesome Weight Watchers – Weeks 3 and 4 of Meetings update this one is not as fabulous. I mentioned that I had some big slip-ups recently and those reflected on the scale.
At the end of my 5th week I was shocked to see I went up a pound. I was positive I would lose because I had really watched what I ate that week, busted my butt working out, and was sure it was my best week on Weight Watchers yet. So, when that one pound gain came it really threw me off. Unfortunately, instead of putting that gain behind me and moving on, I let it affect me a bit the following week and I had a horrid binge day. Like M&Ms, entire bag of tortilla chips, followed by a jar of peanut butter binge. Oh, and not to out do that I went crazy yesterday and ate two boxes of Nut Thins while watching TV in bed and then made myself a huge homemade dessert. Whoops!Needless to say this week I expected the gain and I am lucky it is only a pound (probably because the week before I did so well sticking to the program).
So now what?
Well no beating myself up about it because that won’t help any.
Instead I am focusing on the positive.
Like the fact that I did a great job getting back on track today. Plus when I started going to Weight Watchers meetings I was having huge binges every week, sometimes two or three times a week, and these are my first binges in over a month! Baby steps. On top of all that, I knew there would be a gain on the scale today and I still forced myself to go to the meeting, which I am really proud of.
Focus on the positive –
What is one awesome thing you’ve done today.
