Week 47 Weight lost this week: ? Weight loss in total 35.5 lbs
So I’m not going to Weight Watchers this week. I weighed myself at home this morning and it looks like I’m up 4 lbs. HELLOOOOOO 4 lbs I lost last week! I can’t say I’m happy to see you! To say that I am bummed out would be an understatement. I’m in a bad mood, I feel bloaty and just depressed. I went out to dinner on Saturday and had a couple of glasses of wine and some risotto. I know risotto isn’t the healthiest thing I can eat but it’s not 4lbs of unhealthy. I stayed within my points for the rest of the week so my weekly 49 should have picked up the slack.
This is the first time I’ve stayed away from a weekly meeting but I just can’t face being confronted with the “official” news that I’m up 4lbs. I think I’ll feel sorry for myself for the next couple of hours, dust myself off and move on from this. I so much wanted to get close to 40lbs lost this week and instead I’ve gone back– a lot!
How do you folks deal with a weight gain? I need some tips on how to get over it and not allow myself to get sucked into the f&$! it mentality and eat my body weight in Nutella. I did eat nutella this week but still stayed within my points. Maybe that’s it I just can’t have any indulgences. At least not on a week where I go out to dinner.
I dug into the hamper I received from Weight Watchers and tried one of their bagels. When I first started Weight Watchers I had a bagel with butter and jam every single morning. I didn’t know how I was ever (or even if I wanted to ) break my bagel habit. I eventually decided that the points were too high and just not worth it and I switched to porridge. I was a bit weary of trying one as I was worried I would fall off the wagon and be addicted to them again. Luckily that didn’t happen. I’m not saying the bagel wasn’t yummy– it was, very very yummy. I would buy it again and I think it would be great with a scrambled egg and bacon medallion on a Sunday– would make for a lush breakfast.
So there you have it a totally failed failure fail of a Weight Watchers Wednesday update. I’ll be downstairs eating a bowl of porridge trying to pick myself up by my bootstraps.
