Well, here it is Tues. Weight Watchers day for me. Time to face the dreaded scales.
Today I was pretty confident that I was going to be happy about what I saw. After all, I had been good. Counted my points, did exercise a few times and skipped going out to eat out in an effort to lose weight this week.
Some days you just know you didn't do good and you don't want to step on those scales. After all they don't lie. They tell it like it is. If you were good, the number goes down. If you were bad, up, up, up the number goes.
No those scales don't lie...or do they?
Normally, when I weigh in I don't see the number on the on scale. It's behind the counter where the lady in charge sees it only. Then with a smile she will tell me how much I lost.
Or, if it's a gain, in a quiet voice she will tell me and asked if the gain was a surprise. Which of course it never is.
But, today, the computers were not working up front and so I went into this cubicle with my leader and stepped on the scale. No pause at all. Just got right on.
This time I could see the numbers. WHAT! They had not moved since last week. How could that be? After all, Weight Watchers weighs you in .0 pounds. So even a few oz. would make the number move.
Not today. I was 100% exactly the same as last week.
I tried everything to get that number to drop lower. I moved the right then to the left and even tried standing on one foot! While it got me and my leader to laughing, it didn't get me a lower number.
I don't know why. Really. Sometimes the scales are like that. They just don't give the results you wanted or expected.
I've had weeks where I've eating out of control and I ended up losing weight. Then there are weeks like this one where I did good and I don't lose at all.
I'm not discouraged though. I know if I continue on and do what I did last week then the loss will show up, most likely next week.
Sometimes our bodies are strange and they don't show the weight loss or gain until a week or sometimes even two weeks later.
Often we could be holding on to water weight because of something we ate that was high in sodium or just because we are a woman with that lovely once a month "gift" we get.
I'm not sure really why I didn't lose. I do know, I'm giving up. I will keep on tracking, exercising and following the plan. Because, I KNOW I am going to stick to it this time and get the rest of my weight off.
