Monday #Fail

I am frustrated with my weight. I feel like ever since weight watchers introduced the points plus program, I have been in a rut. I don't know what it is- maybe the holidays setting in, seeing the scale go up, yet again, my ever present thesis deadlines? I'm sure that working 65 hours last week didn't help the situation. Whatever it is, the weigh in today was a huge dismay. +1.8 lbs. UHG.

I feel like I need to do something else to rekindle my love for dieting. I feel gross. I feel full. I feel out of control food wise, but at the same time, looking back I can't figure out anything terrible that I ate- plus I worked out an hour and a half every other day this week. This morning, part of me thought, "To hell with it," so I ate a lot that I really shouldn't have. I skipped breakfast before my first student. My boss made Matt and I his famous sourdough bread for our Chimmeny present, so I couldn't say no to that. I had one piece for breakfast for 3pts (guessing 200 calories).

I went back to work for another student and I had two more slices of sour dough before lunch for 6pts (400 calories?). I had a Smart Ones for lunch for 4pts 220 calories. Followed by five nilla wafers (100 calories) 2pts with peanut butter 5pts (200 calories).

One of the bad decisions. ... X 5
I napped for a lot of the rest of the day until my afternoon student. Maybe I am fighting off a cold or maybe it was staying up a little late to finish Die Hard last night. I'm not sure, but I felt "off" all day.

For dinner, Matt and I went to the brick oven again. I had 2 slices of veggie pizza for 9pts. It was good, but I felt a little sluggish after eating it.

I'm not really sure what I'm going to change at this point, if anything. I think I need to buckle down and set a goal. I've been dancing around the 160s since mid October and I really need to kiss this "decade" of weight goodbye. I was so pumped with last week's loss, but I feel like I am floundering now. I'm nervous about the holidays since we leave town for two weeks starting tomorrow night and holidays are known for their treats, traditions, and celebratory libations. I hope I can navigate through the chaos and manage to lose a little in the process.

I really want to get down to 149-150 so that I can at least say I'm no longer overweight. 13ish pounds isn't much compared to how much I've lost, but it is killing me trying to get there. Anyone have motivation to share or recommendations/support moving forward? I'm all ears!! I want to kick the 160's out of my life!

  2. Hey Casey,

    I really enjoy reading your blog and am just amazed at how far you have come (not because you couldn't do it, but just because it takes so much dedication). I am proud of you for sticking to the plan and keeping count. and you should be too. you are doing a tremoundous job and bettering yourself. however, if you have worked out and gained weight, it may just mean that you have gained muscle tissue. or could it be that time of the month? because i know i BLOAT UP like crazy during that time. i can honestly say that winter is the hardest time to loose weight, becasue it just feels like you are tired almost all the time and would prefer to sleep all day or lay on the couch. you gained under 2 lbs. and you know that you go through about 3lb changes during the day. good luck!



Love to hear from you guys!
