I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I weighed in at Weight Watchers. I was down .8 lbs. Down. Not up. Not even break even. I lost weight. Not sure how. I ate a lot this weekend. Of course, I’ve been an angel on program since I got back from my “lost in food” weekend. But I still didn’t expect a loss. Can you imagine if I’d eaten really well all week? It might have been an even bigger loss. But for now, I’ll take it.
And I’ll be prepared next week when I get on the scale because I do know that sometimes bad food behavior sneaks up on you when you least expect it.
I’ve lost 52.8 pounds using the Weight Watchers point system and by training for a triathlon. It’s been, by far, the easiest time I’ve ever had losing weight and it’s a plan I know I can live with. I still eat all of my favorite foods and make my own choices — albeit, not always good ones — but I’ve learned how to balance food and exercise and I’m a happier, healthier, stronger person as a result.
