Weekly Weigh In: Week 7

Last week’s weight: 172.4
This week’s weight: 172.2

Change this week: –.2
Total weight lost:  37.8 lbs!!!!



Here are the reasons I’m ecstatic about this…

  • It’s “that time of the month” and I usually gain anywhere from 3-5 lbs but I actually LOST weight this time!  YIPEE!!!!
  • I haven’t worked out once this week cause, ya know, the whole broken phalange thing.  (I think the break is toward the top of the toe, so that would be phalange, yes?)

Oh and p.s. calorie counting was making me an insane person!  I was starting to obsess over the calories in a banana or an apple.  It was getting ridiculous and stressing me out.  And there’s no way I ‘m going to be able to lose weight if I’m freaking out and stressed about food all the time!  So I switched back to Weight Watchers(I know I may seem wishy washy but honestly I’m just trying different things right now to see what works best for me).  I’ve done weight watchers before- I’m actually a lifetime member. I know it works.

I know how the program works like the back of my hand.  It’s easy.  It’s familiar.  It’s not stressful!  Fruits and most veggies are free so I don’t have to freak out about eating a banana as a snack if I’m hungry and going over my calories- I can just eat it and enjoy it. It consistently works for me if I’m consistent with the program.  I’ve been back on it for two weeks and am losing weight consistently and not GAINING weight like I was counting calories!

So moral of the story is you need to find what works for YOU,  Not any one course of action works for every single person- our bodies are all different.  Calorie counting does not seem to work well for me.  It works great for some people though.  Weight Watchers works well for me, but it doesn’t work for everyone.  Some people can just focus on eating healthier and be able to easily lose weight.  That does not work for me, but if it does for you then you are a very lucky person and keep up the good work!

Happy Saturday- hope everyone has a good one!
