I'm slowly starting to learn that my misgivings and concerns pre-weigh-in are proving to be for naught. Two weeks in a row now I've expected either no results or to have gained but I've been pleasantly surprised. Last week I lost and this week:
Last week: 195.4 lb
This week: 193.2 lb
Total lost this week: 2.2 lb
Total lost with WW: 8.8 lb
First weight loss target: 191.9 lb
To reach target: 1.3 lb to lose
I'm not going to lie, this was a pretty big surprise. But having lost both last week and this week is helping me realize that I can have fun and have treats and even indulge a bit and it won't wreck my progress. Just not all the time (not that I was indulging all the time before!).
I also got in trouble from Weight Watchers. Turns out I'm losing too fast. I should be losing no more than 2 lb a week and I'm averaging higher than that. To this I say pshaw! I'm not trying to disregard this completely, I'm only saying that I feel healthy; I'm getting lots of good food; I'm exercising regularly; and I've got the Beau watching out for me, making sure I'm not doing anything drastic. I still think a lot of this weight loss is just my body responding well to better habits and that the rate of loss will slow down soon.
But until that happens, I'm perfectly happy with my 8.8 lb gone!
