this is how a yo-yo goes

Weight Chart

Down, up, down, up. It's enough to make me feel a little crazy. I hate the scale sometimes. I know that I was not on my best Weight Watcher behavior this past week, though. I have been very good about journaling even when I'm going over my points, and at least having the discipline to write it down. So last week, I used 39 extra points. That's not good. For all you math-y types, that's almost 6 extra points a day. So I suppose I should have expected some sort of a gain.

I try to keep in mind the fact that other people can't see a difference of three pounds, and even I am not sure that I can. When I went to pick a friend up at the airport yesterday, she said, "You're looking really good!" I doubt I gained the three pounds since yesterday.

Other than the weigh-in, Life is Good (as my favorite t-shirts say). Maybe I should get this one to wear in December. I feel more confident that I will actually graduate, because I got a good work session in yesterday and feel very comfortable about where I am with the dissertation. Yesterday on the way home from going to the airport, I saw a double rainbow, which was so clear and bright that I couldn't believe it. I wanted to stare at it until it disappeared, but since I was driving, I decided that would probably be a bad idea.

I'm not going to have Internet access for a few days, so you are going to have to survive a little while without knowing what is going on in my little life. You will have to make do with the rest of the Angry Fat Girlz. And there are always LOLCats to keep you company if all else fails.


  1. Hey Jen, good to hear you are feeling good about life and happy about your dissertation.

    The yo you thing sucks. Doesn't matter how "good" we are, sometimes the scale just doesn't cooperate. Have you read Meg over at www.iamthatgirlnow.blogspot.com? She has an essay on the scale that I really liked. I like all her stuff, actually. I think it will help you since you are so close to goal/maintenance.

  2. i LOVE those shirts, i have a pair of PJ bottoms that have the yellow dog holding a marshmallow by the fire... so damn cute, i would buy them all if i could... :o)

    and don't worry, those 3 pounds won't stay on for long...

  3. I love rainbows and the double one is the best! Always my luck though. I only see them when I'm driving and have no camera. Someday, rainbow. Someday.

  4. Now I can't remember how I got here...but I have enjoyed reading quite a few of your posts...being a newbie at weight watchers and a Clean Sweep addict ;)....I plan on coming back ;)

  5. Hey, good to hear you are happy with the dissertation. Never fear about those 3 lbs! I wanted to let you know that I tagged you for a Thinking Blogger Award. Check out my last post for instructions if you want to participate.

    Thanks for always making me think!

  6. At least it's a downward trend!

  7. You're still learning the maintenance thing and I don't think it's a big deal. I'm just happy to hear your thoughts about the dissertation and the double rainbow! Have fun!
