In case there was any doubt that rejoining Weight Watchers was the right thing, I give you a picture that is worth many, many words:
The last time I weighed in was in January, and even though the graph looks really, really bad, the gain is actually only 6.6 pounds. Still, I would much rather be 6.6 pounds down than 6.6 pounds up. Monday's weigh-in was lower than the home scale weight that had me all freaked out, which was a relief.
So far, sticking to the plan hasn't felt that difficult. I have been feeling good and not getting too hungry. I think it might be because I am training less aggressively. I am also taking the time to plan my meals and make sure I'm getting those healthy checks and focus on filling foods. I'm trying to save most of my weekly points for the weekend, which is always the hardest time for me.
I just rejoined Monday, so I'm still in the honeymoon period. I have two goals. First, to maintain a positive attitude while I'm losing and stick with this until goal. Second, to really learn maintenance and not have to ever rejoin again. If I had done that back in 2002, this blog might have never been started in the first place.
