I was supposed to run today, but I still have no energy, so I am being nice to myself and taking the day off. I did walk to work and back (1 hour, roundtrip) and did some housework.
I've been trying to count Weight Watchers points again, and it's pretty obvious I'm out of practice making this work. Still not sure that I've found, or come any closer to, a long-term answer. In Thin is the New Happy, the author claims that you can get to your body's natural weight just by not dieting, dealing with your "issues" and problems directly so you don't dive into the food, eating what you want but only as much as you want to be satisfied, and working out four days a week. If I could get a written guarantee that it would work, I'd definitely sign up for that plan. I will do a review of the book once I've had a chance to re-read it and absorb some of the things, because it's actually a lot deeper than it seems at first glance.
I don't trust myself, and that's the real problem, isn't it?
I peeked at the scale today: 175. That's down a pound from last week. Of course, tomorrow is the "official" day, so we'll see whether the scale has the same story tomorrow.
