Well, I went to WW this morning, and unfortunately I gained 1.8 pounds. I'm disappointed, because I really feel like I didn't do that bad this week. However, what's done is done and I don't want to sit here and boo hoo over things in the past. It's time to move forward. In an attempt to help myself, I've had to sit down and make some resolutions to help me do better this coming week. Here's what I've decided to do:
1) Buy a scale. I went to Target right after Weight Watchers and bought a beautiful scale. I know that most people don't weigh everyday and don't think it's a great idea, but I am not doing well without weighing everyday. I don't know if it's because I am down to the last 20 pounds or if it's a mental thing or what, but since the scale was removed from within my house, I've gained 5 pounds and I have not been able to lose it. So, I have a new scale. It's pretty, and hopefully it will keep me on track and motivated so there's no more "wondering" all week anymore.
2) I've started tracking again. While I still don't think I did very bad last week, obviously there were a few things I did that I seemed to have forgotten about or dismissed them or not accounted for. So the tracker is alive and kicking.
3) I've decided to give myself another week of weight lifting. Of course, as soon as I saw the weight gain I immediately wanted to blame my muscles. But thinking it over, it doesn't make sense to me. I have lost weight so many times while lifting- I honestly don't think I've gained enough muscle weight to make a difference on the scale in one week. However, if I have another gain next week, I might have to go back to doing strictly cardio for awhile in an effort to burn this crap off. I am NOT playing around here!
Even though I'm disappointed, like I said, it's time to move forward. It's a new week! Which means new opportunities to do better. :)
