I was definitely put out by my weigh in Saturday. My calorie deficit on Fitbit says I should have lost .3 pounds. Now, this was not a great week — actually I had 6 good days and one day that was bad. And, sometimes, I’ve noticed what Fitbit tells me may not show up for a few days. So, if I had woke up on weigh in day with a .3 pound deficit on Fitbit and I had stood on my scales at home and had a gain I would have been OK with it. But, I didn’t. My scale at home would have been consistent with a loss of around .2 or .4 pounds (closer to .4 than .2 actually).
My scale and WW scale are not exactly the same but the relationship between them is usually consistent from week to week. My current scale tends to weigh a little heavier than the WW scale so I keep that in mind.
Anyway, I got to Weight Watchers and weighed in at 160 pounds for a gain of .2 pounds. This was aggravating since my weigh in at home led to expect either 159.4 or maybe 159.6 pounds. I was utterly shocked to have a gain.
The next morning I weighed and was down .6 pounds! Of course, that was at home and not Weight Watchers.
After the meeting, we went to Genghis Grill for lunch (always easy to eat within points there) and then went clothes shopping. It was a weird day for weather. It was windy and little cool. Not awful, but it was freezing in the mall. I went to Macy’s and saw literally nothing that I liked. And, I was so cold I finally told my husband I just wanted to leave.
We then went to Dress Barn and I was able to find a few things that will tide me over for the next few months. A few casual jackets and tops and a pair of nicer black pants. I was at a weird size in pants. The 14s were all too big for me. There was one pair that was….OK … but I knew that if I lost a few pounds it would be too small. The 12s were mostly OK…but a tiny bit tighter than I would like. Some of them were just way too tight. I could fasten them but didn’t like how they looked. I finally chose 12s that looked OK on me although the waistband is just slightly tighter than I would prefer. But, they looked OK on me and I felt would last longer than the 14s that were already quite loose on me.
I still need to buy a few more things, but at least I’ve gotten some nicer clothes that will tide me over for the next few months!
