There is some amazing conversation and insight in the comments of yesterday’s post on 80/20. Check it out and join the conversation if you can.
I am going to keep this short and sweet as it is 11pm and the first time I’ve had to write this all day. Not to mention I still need to do my PT exercises and pump before bed. (assuming E2 stays asleep, but we did ok last night so I am hoping she will be kind to me).
As expected, I had a gain this week – an medium gain for a medium slip up. I didn’t lose control but I did go over my points and knew it so I knew what to expect. The damage:
-82.2 lbs lost on WW to date
I am glad that is wasn’t more and proud that I still kept things sort of reined in even as I made some not great choices. My bad now is not as bad as my bad has been.
My weight watchers meeting was good this morning. My leader, Liz, said something really insightful that I had to Instagram immediately.
It was a good reminder to me to keep my ultimate goals as the more important priorities. Ultimately my slip ups this week stemmed from me failing to plan ahead and having trouble with portion control, but it is important that not ever craving and desire should be followed.
In the end it was not a bad week really. I don’t feel like beating myself up over it, nor do I feel trapped in a sugar spiral. I made great choices today and ended up using exactly my daily points while even earning a few activity points as my knee gets stronger.
The one thing that comes from being on week 40 is perspective. I know that I can bounce back from gains – I have had far worse ones than this. I know I can lose. I know I have the capacity to make tough choices. In this knowledge is power.
It wasn’t a great week, but there are more weeks and better weigh ins in front of me.
