I had a very bad Weight Watchers week last week, enough to make the previous week seem like strict dieting. Once I got into the hole, psychologically it was harder for me to stay on track. I kept seeing those negative points at the top of my tracker. I really don't like the way they have changed the Activity Points -- I like to use those on the day I earned them, just like I learned long ago. One thing about of online tracking is that you're stuck with the way WW wants you to do things -- you can't get creative. Maybe that's a good thing, actually.
Anyway, I lost 2 pounds! In "The Biggest Loser" terms, I had a 1.16% loss. I'm hoping that if I get a little more discipline this week, I could be in the 160s.
It's really hard to find a nice, simple web graphing program. Tickerfactory used to have one but they seem to have gotten rid of it. I was able to get a screenshot of the weight tracking tool in WW Online. They also have a really interesting weekly graph that lets you see where you're using your points -- morning, midday, evening, anytime. They have plenty of tools for geeks like me to play with (though I've made my own spreadsheet to get the loss percentages and track a couple of other things). The goal weight you see on this graph is actually my 5% goal, not my overall goal.
P.S. I love all the discussion on my Biggest Loser recap. In response to Allison, I do like Mike. The only reason I am not rooting for him to win is I suspect that Ron would take a lot of the credit for it (and maybe also a chunk of the prize money) thinking that his gameplay, and not Mike's hard work, made the big difference in Mike's success. Also, you can still win free yogurt -- I have revised the entry requirements to make it easier for people to win.
