I weighed in for May today. I was down .8 pounds to 147.6 pounds. That puts me back in free lifetime range for Weight Watchers (not more than 2 pounds above my goal weight of 146). I was very unhappy with my April weigh in which was my only one above 148 pounds since I got back to free lifetime status in June of 2015.
I had a really good week this past week. I particularly wanted to do well and weigh in this week since I know I will have some temporary weight gain after my revision surgery due to the upper abdominal liposuction being done. I am not sure how long that will last. It lasted 2 weeks with the tummy tuck. I would expect it to be shorter for this, but I probably won’t be ready to weigh in the first Saturday after surgery.
I do feel I am back on track eating. During the time I was off track, I did track consistently. But, I was going over on both calories and points. There were always reasons…but they mostly weren’t particularly good reasons. But, it became easier and easier to just go over and say I would get on track at the next meal, or the next day, or even the next week. It was a real reminder to me as to how easy it can be to get out of one developed good habit and go back to an old not so good routine.
Maybe I needed that reminder. Maybe I needed to remember what it was like to not keep careful control over what I eat. Maybe over the last couple of years I started to get a little over confident. I mean on the outside I said the right things. But, I think on the inside I got a little over confident and thought I wouldn’t really gain weight again. This has reminded me that I can get off track and gain weight if I don’t follow good habits.
