Week 6 was bad. I was bad. I shouldn’t say “bad” but I definitely have been going down hill. Getting lazy, falling back into bad habits. And it’s showing. I gained this week. Not a lot, but the fact that I gained at all is a big problem for someone who is trying to LOSE weight. It’s not like I’m almost there and this is a plateau- I have a LOT more to lose and this is only Week 6 and this is my own laziness getting in my way. This is how I got to where I am. This week I really fell off the tracking wagon. I think that is such a huge part of it for me. My brain tends to minimize what I’ve consumed; selective memory. This leads me to feeling like I can eat more than I really can. I know tracking is a pain (hence the main reason I fell off it), but it has to happen. I have to make it a priority. Write down the food before I even put it my mouth. Check the points before I decide if I’m eating it or not. Vigilance!
Week 6 starting weight: 217.8
Week 6 ending weight: 218.6
Week 6 progress: Up 0.8 pounds
Overall progress: Down 15.7 pounds!
Conclusion: Time to find that excitement that I had going into this. Gotta get back to using the Weight Watchers tools and recipes and information. I mean, that’s why I’m paying for it, isn’t it? Get back to eating more “clean” foods: Nothing out of a box, lots of fruits and veggies, yogurts, and making my own food. STOP eating out and eating convenience foods. I WILL DO THIS DAMN IT!
