Right Track

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

Today was another Weight Watchers meeting & weigh in session. As usual, I was nervous going in, but I was with a coworker this time, and she was even more nervous than me. Keeping her reassured meant I didn't have time to obsess so much about me.

I was down again, and since I started Weight Watchers (and Sparkpeople, they've both been helpful for different reasons), I have gone down a whole six pounds, an average of 2 lbs per week. I know its not healthy to focus on the scale, but on changing your eating and excersising habits, but its nice to see that the changes I've made are making a difference.

Its definately motivating. I know I won't be able to maintain this, and there will come a time (sooner than later, I imagine) where the scale won't move at all or might go up, but I'll take what I have now and not worry about the future!

I am on the right track!

    the scale is like warns you of danger when you get cocky and overdo it. I give myself 2 pound error factor (depending on salty stuff or BM) and I weigh myself at the same time almost every day. do what works for you

    Well, part of the deal with WW is to get weighed once a week. But that's it. I don't own a scale myself, so there is no temptation to check more often than that!

    It is hard to stay off the scale. In the past I weighed everyday, sometimes twice a day. I brought myself a lot of grief doing that. I set myself up all the time for disappointment and unrealistic goals. This time I am not getting on the scales. I wait and wait. Usually when I go to the doctor and they weigh me. That way I have a great weight lose. I spend my time planning meals, exercising, and I pay attention to the accomplishment of daily goals (not the scales. I have been more successful this time. I lost 37 pounds since October 2011. I pay attention to my clothes getting bigger or that I can walk without getting so out of breathe. I pay attention to the fact my skin is looking better and I am happy that day. Stay off the scale. You will do much better. Even if you plateau stay off the scale. Look over your tracker for the week and see if there is anything you need to change or if you are getting enough exercise. Hope this helps. Scales can be our enemy when we are trying to accomplish weightloss. emoticon emoticon
