So, yeah, I know WW says I’m not supposed to, but I’ve been looking at the scale every morning since re-joining and following the “Simple Start” plan for a week. I was feeling really good because after gaining a random pound the first day, the number kept going down, down, down every day after. By yesterday morning I was down 4 whole pounds!
I made sure I laid off the sodium yesterday. No super salty foods, no diet soda …. lots and lots of water. I followed the plan all day (as I have all week) and felt pretty good when I went to bed last night. I was happy I’d wake up this morning and head into the meeting with a FOUR POUND loss. WOOP!!!
But wouldn’t you know it. This is SO typical for my body. I woke up this morning almost 2 pounds up from yesterday. Why? WHO ON EARTH KNOWS! It’s just what my body does. All the time. It’s really frustrating and annoying, and it’s actually the reason I weigh in daily instead of once a week (See more on that in this post I wrote a while back). So at least when my weight pops up for no apparent reason, I don’t feel like I’ve been a complete failure all week.
So anyway…. I just got back from my official weigh-in and according to the WW scale, I lost a whopping 1.2 pounds this week. *sigh*
Yes, yes, I know, I know…. I don’t need the lecture about how 1-2 pounds is the recommended weight loss, and that 1 pound of fat is like that big scary lump of yellow stuff they show you in the meetings. I know. It’s just really frustrating when I know there is no way on earth I actually, legitimately, gained 2 pounds overnight and it’s like the Weight Loss Gods like to play a little joke on me every weigh-in day just to get a laugh. Well I don’t think it’s funny!
But ok we’ll go with it. As I promised myself I would do every Friday… here is my official WW weigh-in for 2/7/14: 204.8 lbs.
Hopefully I’ll have better luck next week.
Here’s to week 2 of Simply Filling!
