Weight Watchers Wednesday: Humidity

27 Jul

I hate humidity. Not just a little, vague hatred. I. Hate. Humidity.

I didn’t used to hate it, it was just a thing that happened in summer, no biggy right? Well, ha! Turns out humidity can totally mess with a weigh-in, grr!

I actually managed to get to the Wednesday meeting this week, vs the Thursday meeting I’ve been hitting up for the past couple weeks. When I was at home I stepped on my own scale, mostly out of curiosity. I was feeling ok considering I’d been in Harrison most of the weekend racing and eating. I was fully expecting to be up on the scale but not by too much so why not learn the bad news sooner rather than later, right?

So my scale said I’d gone down 1.5lbs, yay! My scale and the WW scale don’t match, mine always shows me about a pound or so lighter than the official scale but I figure that difference is due to (1) it being a different scale and they all seem to be a little off from each other, like clocks and (2) I’m wearing clothes when on the official scale but at home I am usually, hmm, how to put this delicately? In a state of undress. 😉 I’ve gotten used to the two scales not matching, I figure as long as they both go up or down by the same amount then it’s all good.

When I had my official weigh-in I was only down 0.8lbs.

What the hell is that??

Not cool WW scale. Not. Cool.

The leader said it was probably due to the humidity. Hence my new hatred for humidity lol

The room the meeting is in is freakishly hot, and humid, as is most of the city (to varying degrees). The only space with no humidity that I have discovered is my apartment and that is because it is still super chilly in here. I live in a basement suite and have no control over the heat, my place is cold year round. In fact it only juuuuust got warm enough in here that I have stopped wearing my flannel pj bottoms and am just wearing a nightshirt…well, also bed socks but that is cause my feet get cold, *pout*.

So yeah, apparently in my apartment, the land that humidity has forgotten, I had lost 1.5lbs. Out there in the real world that translates in to a loss of 0.8lbs.

At the meeting the topic was All Things Summer. Basically, how do you deal with summer, do you love or hate it, find it easier or more challenging to follow the program, stuff like that. I don’t know if I find it easier or harder to follow the program in summer because I started in summer, shrug, guess I’ll find out once it is winter lol

This week was also about being in the moment, really savouring various things that have to do with summer. Some examples were taking a moment to really appreciate and enjoy that piece of summer fruit you are about to bite in to. Or finding time, even if it is only 5 minutes to close your eyes, breathe deep, clear you mind and focus on your breath and body. Apparently it can do wonders…

There wasn’t anything really insightful or amazing said at the meeting, or at least nothing impressive enough that I wrote notes lol There is a recipe in the weekly booklet they hand out that I want to try, a Pasta Salad with Tomato and Basil. The picture looks delish and it seems easy enough. I thought I had all the ingredients for it but alas, I do not, so it’ll have to wait a week before I have everything I need to give it a go. I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂
