So I went to my weigh in tonight feeling pretty comfortable and confident. I had used 30 of my weekly points, but I tracked every day this week and I also had 20 (!!) activity points. So I was feeling good and I stepped on the scale and….
…womp, womp, womp.
So I am feeling really frustrated and uh, pissed about that number. I don’t feel like it reflects the week I had and the work I put in. Is it just “not working” anymore? Do I need more patience? Persistance? I feel like it has been such slow going for awhile so should I change things up?
One thing I have been asking myself is “Do long term Weight Watchers have a physique I desire?” and “Do I want to ‘track’ my whole life?”
I am struggling through those questions. Because honestly the answer to both is “no”. But I’m not sure where to go from there and I don’t want to end up going nowhere and going backwards. **big sigh**
I don’t have all the answers here, guys.
I DO know that I am running more than I have before, working out consistently and lifting heavier weights which is awesome!
I also KNOW my diet could be healthier and more nutritious. I eat junk. Not as much as I did 4+ years ago or even as much as I did a few months ago but I still do. I’ll let you know where we go from here as far as Weight Watchers.
But I do know some things I want from the next month:
May 2015 Goals
- Run a 5K–I just signed up for the K5K in Kalamazoo!
- Lose 4-10 pounds
- Work out at least 5 days a week
- Plank for 1 minute
- Get a pedicure (Things are a little rough, literally.)
- Get a haircut
- Read two books this month (that aren’t cardboard-haha!)
- Finish reading the book of John (Finally!?)
- Save $300
- Have a garage sale!
So those are the goals I plan to accomplish this month. I am getting up earlier and I love how much I can get done when I do! April was an exciting month with our trip to St. Louis, warmer weather, and lots of yummy healthy eats like these homemade mocha fudge larabars! Even though this week of weight loss didn’t go as I would want it, I am confident that this is just a short setback and the month of May will be an awesome one!
