UNEXPECTED WEIGHT GAIN! OH, MY!
Tuesday, January 11, 2011
I've not been feeling well the past couple of days, and have been under the drain of a sinus infection. Still, I'd adhered to the plan all week...and didn't so much as touch my 49 extra points.
Last night, I weighed in at my weekly Weight Watchers meeting, and was greeted with a 1.4 lb weight gain!
Holy Moly! Yikes! I'd expected to LOSE!
I'd been dropping weight every single week, since joining Weight Watchers on 11/29/10, and was down just over 11 pounds, and had been loving the plan.
So, last night, after the meeting, I came home, telling myself that I shouldn't feel bad since I'd done everything right.
Well, by midnight, under the spell of sniffles and post-nasal drip, and this unexpected weight gain, my attitude changed and began telling myself...
"Self, you didn't do a single thing to deserve a weight gain, never mind a weight gain of 1.4 pounds! Self, you've been slammed! Self, you need some chocolate chip cookies, and right now."
Boy, that made a lot of sense. Not.
So, did I listen to that crazy inner voice?
There I sat, feeling sorry for myself, eating through a partially full bag of chocolate chip cookies (ummm....ones that hadn't been touched since last November...adding to the gross factor, but I won't go there right now).
Well, I'm today back on plan, and trying to figure out crazy human nature - mine, in particular.
