I was thinking I'd finally get my 5-pound star this week. Instead of losing 0.8, though, I gained it. Crap. At this rate it will take me as long to lose 20 pounds as it takes some people to lose 100. Our leader does these mini-challenges that last 6 or 7 weeks. I found out today that there are people at my meeting who lost 18 pounds in the last 7 weeks. I lost 2.6. There was a woman who looked about my size who had lost 10.
I do think the biggest problem is a failure to commit fully to the process, though. If I go over my points, I think, "what the heck, it's not that bad." What I really need to do is start planning meals out in advance.
Anyway, no whining. I made my choices last week and this is how it turned out. At least I have "The Biggest Loser" tonight to look forward to.
