Well… I tried my hardest, but this week, I didn’t have any loss at all. I am super frustrated by this development. I didn’t indulge, or eat more than the points allotted to me. I had a deficit most days of 10 or so points. I earned 10 activity points, and didn’t go into my weekly points. Despite all that hard work, I didn’t go down by even one tenth of a pound.
I am not sure what I’m going to do yet. I know that for many people Weight Watchers is a super successful program, but having lost thirty pounds in three months before, I know that I can lose weight faster that I currently am, while still remaining healthy.
I also want to point out that I haven’t been lethargic, nor losing or gaining any muscle mass. I haven’t been retaining water or any other excuse that I hear people use.
Annie wants me to try to use more of my daily points, and make sure to fill out a healthy eating score card each day. I’m going to give it a go, and see how things pan out. I don’t want to let her down, either. I’m just worried that if I eat more, I’ll gain and if I gain while eating within my point limits and not binging (as I’m prone to do) on bad food, then I’ll be heavier than I am now and even more frustrated.
When I feel as I do this evening, I want to blame something. I want to blame Weight Watchers, or the popcorn that I had at the theatre, or the weather not giving me more opportunities to walk, but in the end, I feel I can only blame myself, and that can be a hard burden to bear as I try to continue to press forward on my weight loss journey.
Here’s hoping next week is better.

Hang in there- Losing 30 pounds is no small accomplishment!!!
Thanks. I gained some of it back when I started dating my now fiancee. I have lost 5.4 pounds again on Weight Watchers since starting. I know I can lose weight, and I have lots to lose, so it is disheartening when it doesn’t come off…
It’s certainly not easy. I’m counting calories *and* exercising.. and I’d loosing about a pound a week. All we can do is to keep at it!
Thanks, I agree. No way to really give up without just getting fatter….
