Alright, no long, drawn out business here today. I did that week 2.
I am up 0.8 pounds.
I expected this since Wednesday since I was up about a pound then, too.
Not upset about it, though I will say it’s of course not what I wanted to see on the scale. Bottom line is that in about a month of doing Weight Watchers, I have lost a total of 4.4 pounds, which is about a pound a week. That’s average and good. Hey, if I do that for a year I’ll be down about 48 pounds. That’s nothing to be sad about, right?
It was also my first week doing PointsPlus (new plan by Weight Watchers). I feel if I am remotely critical about the new program, I will get slammed on my blog with people telling me I should trust Weight Watchers. Which is fine, but I don’t feel like trying to defend why I do/don’t like the plan or why I feel like if a banana is 120 calories, it SHOULD BE 2 points. Blasphemous, I know. I guess as someone who tried to naturally reach for fruits as snacks rather than 100 calorie packs, the zero point fruit thing doesn’t make me want to sing its praises from the roof tops. And, no, it’s not that I am afraid of change. If I was afraid of change, why would I be on a lifestyle change and trying to do fun, new things as exercise?
I just don’t like complicated stuff, and I feel it’s complicated.
This week, I am going to do what I feel works for me. Might be PointsPlus, might be normal Weight Watchers, might be 2002 version of Weight Watchers, might be intuitive eating. You’ll have to come back next week to find out.
I am also going to increase my exercise and add something to my workouts. Maybe some weights… maybe some higher intensity. Or both.
Also, need to cut back on the diet soda consumption.
Basically, I know there’s always room for improvement, so onto week 5 I go. Week 4 will not define me.
The scale can kiss my butt this week.

Off to garage sales I go! I want a table to so I can do this to my breakfast nook:
