It’s time for the Weekly Weigh-In. Get your accountability on! If you’ve ever done Weight Watchers before, you know that you can get one pass to skip a weigh-in, right? Well, I’m taking a pass this week. Actually, I weighed in yesterday, as usual; I’m just taking a pass on sharing it with you.
Yeah, it was bad. It undid the last several weeks of weight-loss and I’m really not sure why. I stayed as active as usual. I did have a couple of days where I went over my calorie budget, so I wouldn’t have been surprised to have either stayed the same or had a little gain. An unexpected date night – that winds up being an almost-twenty-four-hour date night – with your husband can cause some carelessness with eating, but I didn’t think I’d been that careless. Especially given the fact that part of our date time was spent shopping for new workout clothes as part of my no longer being obese celebration. Weight-loss was on my mind.
Oh, well. I’m disappointed, but I’m not stressing over it. I realized this morning that my whole attitude has changed from my previous weight-loss attempts. Never once did quitting cross my mind. All I thought about was working harder this week and making sure I stay on track.
The fact is you only fail when you quit and I’m not quitting.
What about you? Did you have a good weigh-in this week or will you be recalculating with me?
