Feeling Like a Broken Record

Weigh in was Friday, and it’s taken me two days to post here because, well, frankly I don’t feel like reporting another crappy weigh-in. But guess what.  This one was even crappier than the last two! 

Yup!  This week my body decided to actually GAIN TWO POUNDS!  So let’s recap:  I rejoined WW 3 weeks ago and am right back to the starting weight I was at when I joined.  I lost two and gained two.

Sigh.

Ah well.  Looking back over the week, here’s what I noticed: 1) my body is gearing up for TTOM and my weight fluctuates like a maniac during that time… and 2) I ate a ton of carbs.  I looked over my points tracker and noticed A LOT of carbs last week.  I think the big downfall came when I bought this giant bag of PopChips for our Presidents Day picnic on Monday.

I diligently divided the whole bag into 1-ounce portions so I wouldn’t overdo it, but even eating 1 ounce at a time, and tracking every point of it…. the fact remains that my body seems to hate carbs.  They stick to me like glue.  And really… there’s nothing nutritionally redeeming about these kinds of snacks, so why waste my points on them?  Stupid, stupid, stupid.  I knew it when I bought them!

Oh well… so I’m going to do my best this week to keep the carbs to whole foods, and at breakfast only (except veggies — they go into every meal).  It’s really not that hard to do, it’s just a matter of being diligent about it.  Who knows… maybe I’ll actually have a good weigh in this week!

Be glad you can’t see my eyes rolling right now.
