Midweek check-in

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. 


  1. Congrats on rejoining. I am getting over an injury and have been housebound for seven weeks. I am rejoining WW next Thursday. I have no idea what I weigh now. It doesn't matter. I am starting. That is what is important. Let us support each other. Join me at

  2. So glad that you are feeling good and not finding it difficult to be back. Your goals are very realistic and definitely motivating :) Our heads have to be in the right place to really understand maintenance as it works for US and not in the generic sense. Or at least I think so: I've never been at maintenance, I just regained it all. But not this time for me, either.

  3. Welcome back! I wish I had something more inspirational to offer you, but when I came back in March 2009, I just wanted to reach goal and lifetime and not do the yo-yo anymore. Try and keep sight of your long-term goal. You can do it!
