I have been a little lax lately with my weekly weigh ins. Probably because it has been such a constant up, down, up, down, up, down.
Who wants to hear about that? Well…I realized maybe YOU do. Maybe you are experiencing the same thing and you need to hear that you are not alone. Guess what?!?
You are not alone!
This week, I was down 1.6. However, the week before I was up 5 pounds. The week before that I didn’t weigh in (President’s Day holiday) and the week before that, I was down 3.2.
See my dilemma?
If I were a roller coaster which one would I be?!? Probably a dinky one because my ups and downs are constant not dramatic.
So, what can help me get back to a constant INcline instead of DEcline?
That is where you come in…hello!
I am going to start reporting, good or bad, in my weekly weigh in E-V-E-R-Y week.
If I don’t weigh in, I will tell you that but I will report what my home scale says.
Now, on to the weekly topic…
I am not good at this one. I have become
very lax a never do it kind of person when it comes to measuring. I do a lot mostly guesstimating. Hmmm…maybe that could be a good reason why I am not seeing a decline at the scale?!?
I know if I want to have a good weight loss week, I have to measure and track everything I put in my mouth. It really isn’t rocket science. So, why don’t I do it? Laziness? Confusion? Don’t want to come to grips with reality? All of the above?
If I want to be successful, I have to measure and count. So do you.
Last night, I took this to heart when getting my lunch ready. My Weight Watcher weigher-inner gave me a WW measuring scale. I have THE main tool I need. I just need to use it more. I whipped it out, dusted it off and measure out my Pretzel Crisps to put in my lunch bag. When I looked at the amount in the baggie, I realized rather quickly that my guesstimating has been way off!
If I can consistently measure and track, I will be successful, get to goal, and STOP paying Weight Watchers so much money every month!
Are you good at measuring? What is your favorite measuring tool?
