Remember that post I wrote about how I easily lost 25 pounds in 100 days on Weight Watchers?
Well, apparently I spoke too freakin’ soon.
This will be a Weight Watchers update post, so if you’re here for pretty home décor, you’ll want to come back Monday when I share my office space gallery wall. If you want to hear about my gluttonous summer, carry on.
I was going along on Weight Watchers, minding my business and my points, when summer hit. The first week of June I hit 29.6 pounds and I was like, “If I just vehemently sneeze on the scale next Saturday, I’ll hit the 30 pound mark and be one step closer to looking like Jennifer Lopez’ fat, but super pretty, sister!”
I was a saint the following week, sneezed
vehemently violently, held my breath, took off my earrings, stepped on the scale hoping to hit the big 3-0 and LOST NOT AN OUNCE. Not a
gain, either though.
UGH. The next week was Daniel’s birthday, and despite a trip toAustin, I stayed on track. The scale didn’t budge again.
Then we went on vacation, and I said screw it! Gained 3.2 pounds due to my sudden addiction to Whichwich (helloooo, sodium!)
Got back on track, went right back to 29.6 pounds loss. YAY.
July 4 came, and I coordinated an apple pie baking contest at work, so yeah. You can guess what happened. One of the pies had a bacon crust, no lie.
Then I went to Des Moines for the BHG Christmas in July thing (read about that here).
And since then I cannot get back on track. Argh. It’s not easy anymore. <throws tantrum>
As of this morning, I am standing at 27 pounds lost. I tracked my breakfast, and I need to not blow it at lunch. I’ve been drinking diet soda like water when I had successfully (or so I thought) booted that habit after 19-ish weeks on Weight Watchers.
I’m not giving up, but I am using this post as a wake-up call and progress report to you all. Sometimes stuff happens, and life gets hectic, but it’s important to remember why you started. I do not want to end up right back at my starting weight from February, and I have worked so hard to get to this point.
I love this Weight Watchers program, and I know it works when I work the program. (If you want to join you can use my referral link to get $20 to spend on goodies at the online Weight Watchers store. They have snacks and kitchen tools!)
I’m about to fill up my water bottle with water (novel idea!) and make a healthy choice at lunch. I’m going to work my butt off to hit the 30 pound mark sometime this month, and I can’t wait to shout it from the rooftops.
So, here’s to 30. And because I hate posts without pictures, here’s a cute selfie of me and Matt Bellassai. Love that guy. Have no clue who he is? Click here.
How do you get back on track after veering off it?
Be back Monday with an office post about functional gallery walls and school supplies you must buy even if you have no kids.
