Weight Watchers Day 4 - Feeling Great!!

Friday, February 08, 2013

Good afternoon Lovely Sparkers!!!

Today is day 4 of Weight Watchers, and I'm feeling great!

I stepped on the scale again this morning... *sigh. I'm trying not to, but I wanted to know what the damage would be from my dinner last night. We had a birthday dinner, and even though I reserved a good amount of my daily points for the dinner, I still didn't think it was possible that I wouldn't gain. I mean, I had some pork chops (pan fried in a light bread crumb crust), rice, sauce on the pork chop, and then birthday cake and ice cream. And even though I kept my potions in control, I figured there was no way I could eat food like that and not work out and not gain.

I didn't gain! In fact, I still lost. How does that even happen?!?

So needless to say, I felt great after getting off the scale.

Today is an unusual day because I am working from home, so I didn't have my food packed and I didn't think to put food ahead or meal plan because I would be home. THat was a mistake, but I did alright.

I'm so happy that things seem to be working. I'm promising myself to stay off the scale until my Monday night meeting. I don't want the habit of scale stepping. I think I might even move my scale out of the bathroom and hide it somewhere. It's too tempting and easy to want to step on it in the morning. Out of sight, out of mind.

Hope you're all have a sparktastic day!!!!

    Just in case, don't forget that not all scales are accurate. If you're going based on the initial weight at the meeting and now you're using your scale at home, one of them could show a different number than the other. I just don't want you to count on having an accurate number then going to the meeting and being let down. You might want to weigh yourself just before walking out the door to the meeting then weighing yourself right away when you get there, to know if there is a difference. Or take your scale to the meeting and compare one to the other right there. And as someone else said, clothes make a difference, even as much as 3 pounds when it comes to jeans and sweatshirts versus weighing in the buff.

Also, remember what food you've eaten for 1-3 days prior makes a difference too. It takes a 'normal' digestive system 24-48 hours (or more for slower systems or difficult to digest foods) to pass food from one end to the other. How much water you're drinking makes a difference too. Being dehydrated can cause artificial weight loss and being fully hydrated is better for you even if it means adding another pound or two.

    Congratulations on your choice to join weight watchers.

Just a reminder to make sure you wear the same clothes each time you go to your weight watchers weigh in. The clothes you wear could make a difference between .05 - 1 pounds.
