Weight Watchers Wednesday…Sorta…

20 Jul

I didn’t write last week, not because I stopped doing the whole Weight Watcher thing but because I had my weekly meeting on Thursday and planned to write up my post after the meeting but I was sooooo sick I couldn’t do it. Ugh. It sucked. I couldn’t even look at the written word, let alone type it!

But this week I am doing better! Yay!

However, I am missing my Wednesday meeting again! because of life plans and will be going Thursday. It’s not that I don’t like the Thursday meeting, it is fine, but I hate missing the Wednesday meeting, again, not because of anything specific to do with the meeting just because I like going Wednesdays. In the app I have Wednesdays as my weigh-in day so that is the day my weekly points roll over and is technically the beginning of my new food week and I guess I prefer having my official weigh-in happen on the day it is supposed to happen on. shrug. I know I could switch the weigh-in day on my app to Thursday, since I appear to be hitting up the Thursday meeting quite often but I don’t wanna *foot stomp* so there! 😉 lol

Last week we talked about trying something new and our leader gave us the challenge of trying a new food this week. So far, I have epically failed that challenge *rolls eyes*. Once I got my appetite back I was really only wanting to eat bland, simple, foods and I figured following my stomach’s lead over the meeting leader’s lead was the wisest choice.

My weigh-in results from last week had me losing 1.2 pounds, bringing me to a total loss of 6.2 pounds. I can’t wait till my weight loss numbers get bigger and sound more impressive. People keep asking me how much I have lost and when I say 6.2 pounds they look so disappointed, it’s annoying! Then they start wondering, out loud!, why I’m not losing faster, or is the program really worth it, blah blah blah. I always want to respond with a comment along the lines of “get off my freakin back I’m doing the best I can!” but instead I just give a little smile, say something positive about the program, point out I haven’t been going all that long, and walk away sorta wondering if I am sucking at this whole weight loss thing since the whole entire world seems to think I should be losing faster. sigh.

But ya know what? It is healthier to lose the weight no more than 2 pounds per week, and I know from past experience my body does not like to lose weight so any weight loss is a minor victory in my world. I’ve just got to remember that people suck, and often say things they may not realize can have a negative effect on the person they are speaking to.

Ultimately, I decide how I feel about myself and my weight loss journey, and so far, I feel good about the journey. I am re-learning proper food portions, meeting great people, enjoying using the app, and am seeing results. Really, what more could I ask for?
