Finally was able to get back to attend a meeting today. Last Friday, my husband was having shoulder surgery, so I just ran in and weighed and couldn’t stay for the meeting. The Friday before that was July 4th. I weighed in on another day, but didn’t go to the meeting.
I was very happy with the weigh in today:
I lost 1.6 pounds, to get to 163.6 pounds. I was actually a little surprised it was that good, but I should have had better losses the last couple of weeks (according to my Fitbit) so maybe it was just getting caught up. I did have a really good week with food. Since my husband had surgery, we didn’t eat out like we normally do. We did bring in Subway once and I had indulged with a 12″ sandwich, a cookie and chips. Something I rarely do. Still, I did really well the rest of the week.
It was sort of interesting. I was very busy this week and I found that I just didn’t think to eat. I would suddenly realize it was late in the evening and I hadn’t eaten in hours. That isn’t like me. Normally I like to eat every few hours. But, I find that when I’m busy, I tend to just not think that much about eating and don’t get very hungry. I do know that when I do get hungry when I’m busy I have to be careful. It is easy to go for the most convenient food, not necessarily the lowest calories. But, this week I managed to do OK on that anyway.
I am getting close to an important milestone for me. When I went back to Weight Watchers a few years ago, the lowest I got to was 162 pounds in January, 2012. I was doing very well and then we were getting ready to move, buying a new house and actually moving and I just threw the eating plan by the wayside and regained back to the mid-190s. So I’ve sent basically the last year trying to get back to where I was when I weighed 162 pounds. Well, I’m almost there. I really look forward to that, so I can finally get to where I’m losing “new” weight. (I’ve lost it before, of course, but not in a very long time.)
