I got on the scale this morning and even though it is not official weigh in day, I reached one of the mini goals I have set for myself.
In late February, I got on the scale and was distraught at the number I saw. I had managed to gain 7 pounds since coming back from the Olympics and that was on top of the 10 pounds I had gained after plastic surgery which was on top of the 10 pounds I gained from my lowest. I was so upset so I decided to join Weight Watchers.
The problem was that after a week, I didn't really DO Weight Watchers. I pretty much just buried my head in the sand and didn't want to face the problem. Unfortunately, I did that for about 3 1/2 months and managed to gain another 7 pounds. The sad fact is that if I am not actively working on maintaining my weight, I'm going gain. I have found that I do a better job of maintaining when my plan is to maintain than when my plan is to lose. It is a bit mindboggling.
Well, anyway...I have managed to get through that bit of weight I gained after joining Weight Watchers and I'm again going steadily in the right direction. The key for me will be to stick with it. Right now I feel in control and right now I feel it is doable. That is a good feeling.
My next mini goal is 1.8 pounds away and that will put me at my lowest weight this year. Once I get to that point, I will really feel like I'm getting somewhere.
