The good news today, was that I didn't gain any weight. The bad news was that I didn't lose any either!
It can be a little deflating, when you know that you have stuck to your eating plan, exercised, drank your water and tracked your points. Then at weigh in time, the scale records that you are in the same place you were at last week!!
This seems to be par for the course, since I started this journey. One week I have a good weight loss. The next week I plateau and either lose nothing or just a smidgen.
I have been doing a lot of exercise, which includes walking, strength training with light weights and using a friend's elliptical trainer. However, I haven't been as good at eating all my daily points. Therein, I suspect, lies the problem. Talking it over with my WW meeting leader, I'm even more convinced.
So this week, I'm going to concentrate on eating my daily allocation of food points, all 27 of them, and see what happens. The only problem that I have with this, is I do not want to eat for the sake of eating and especially when I'm not feeling hungry. That behaviour was part of what got me overweight in the first place. It's a habit that I've been working hard at breaking.
So what do you all do, to fit in those extra points? My leader suggested a smoothie. I'm also thinking that I might double my servings of chicken, fish and other protein, as that is necessary for muscle building.
Sighhhh ... who would ever of thought that NOT eating enough would be a problem!! :-)
