But anyway. Here I am. I still track every day, still WI every week, and still hit the gym at least 3 times a week, so I just need to buckle down a little more with my eating. It’s really not complicated- the weeks I stay within my WPs and APs I lose, and the weeks I’m in the red I gain. Easy peasy. I’ve just become so predictable with WW. When I don’t have any major social outings or obstacles, I stay within my points; when I have a few meals out, happy hours, or other drinking occasions, I tend not to. Which is probably true for almost anyone on WW. But I need to limit my splurges so that I see more good weeks than bad weeks. Common sense, really.
On the bright side, I wore a winter coat for the first time in months today (which is a little ridic since the high is 68 today.. but it was freakin freezing when I left my apartment this morning!) and it was loose. The change of seasons makes all those NSVs more prominent because you’re putting on stuff you haven’t worn since mid-spring. It really was just what I needed to counteract my moodiness over not having hit the 100 mark despite being on its doorstep for months. I bought the coat I wore this morning last year right about this time and it was snug by a pinch. Definitely wearable without making me look packed into it, but I knew it’d be a little more comfortable after another 5 or 10 pounds came off. I’ve lost 35 pounds since then, thanks in large part to my burst of WW-awesomeness (yes, I was briefly awesome) from January to May, and the coat is now a bit too big. Certainly not complaining though! Hopefully there will be more of these fall-clothes-NSVs ahead. And even more hopefully, some consistent SVs ahead!
So, in the interest of full disclosure, I’m currently 1.2 pounds higher than my lowest weight from August 23 when I was a tiny little 0.4 pound sliver away from -100. It also means I’m only 0.6 lighter at today’s WI than I was at my July 26 WI according to a quick peak at my weight tracker, meaning I’ve been going up and down and up and down a helluva lot in the last 2 months. This week was a loss of 1.6 after a 1.8 pound gain the week before. However, I am committing right now to making this coming week a second consecutive loss to break into some new territory for the first time in months. I am perfectly capable of stringing together multiple weeks of non-shitty eating/drinking, so why not do it now?
