Guyz – I’ve felt GREAT back on Weight Watchers. I feel in control, I feel healthy, I feel motivated and driven. I feel much more like my old normal self.
So, here I am… in line to weigh in. Since I destroyed my scale a few months back I’m super nervous. I’ve had nothing all week to compare to, to prep for, to let me know where I’m at. I have, however, had all week to get stoked about some bomb ass weight loss that would make the leaders be all like, “Ermergherd – how’d you do it? You’re amazing!!!” I ended my first week back with 21 weeklies left and daily success.
There is another “first weeker” weighing in ahead of me. She weighed in I heard them give her the response I thought they were saving for me. She’d lost 8 pounds! EIGHT POUNDS! Amazing! ERMERGHERD! HOW’D YOU DO IT?!?
I lost 1.4 frigging pounds. I’ve taken shits bigger than that.
Rewind a week to the first meeting and note that this was the first time I’d been to this location. The first time weighing in was a little rough. 242.2. There – I said it. 242.2lbs. WHAT.THE.FUCK. I haven’t weighed 242 in YEARS. Seriously, years. At least 4 years ago. My reaction may or may not have been similar to the this gif. Total embarrassment when I weighed in, but it was weird, the woman weighing me in didn’t flinch or budge or judge, as I was clearly having a stroke. I teared up. A lot of emotion was there. She looked at me and just opened her arms for a hug. I’m just a girl that can’t say no when it comes to hugs. I snuggled into her and took a deep breath. I apologized and told her this was just a really big step for me, it’s been a year since I’ve been back at WW and it’s quite overwhelming. She said she was proud of me for coming.
Despite only losing 1.4 pounds this week, it does feel good to be back on plan. I am not stopping. I know that 1.4 is a good number and then if I lost 1.4 every week I’d be at my ultimate goal weight in 10 months. It was just frustrating. I honestly thought I’d see more like 5lbs – yes, I wanted to see water weight. Stfu.
Things I’m trying this week
- I’ve set a silent alarm on my FitBit to go off every hour on the hour so I get up from my desk and move more.
- I should probably run since I’ve got a race in 2 weeks.
- Making lower sugar fruit choices (because I’m eating all of the bananas and grapes ever currently).
Side note: I went for a walk, NOT A RUN, the other night with Kevin and look at the snarky shit FitBit put on my dashboard. Rude.
