For my newer readers, I joined Weight Watchers back in November to lose the 15ish pounds I had gained back from intially starting to lose weight seven years ago.
I was 5 pounds from my goal (the goal right now is to get to a healthy range and then become lifetime) Monday at 5:58 p.m. At 5:59 p.m., I was 5.6 pounds from goal. Ugh! A gain.
Another gain (last week was up half a pound as well).
So, what do I do?
Thankfully, there's this amazing lady that sits behind me that has lost 75 pounds and is headed towards 100. We share each week with each other what our mini-goals for the week are. Through some reflectiveness on my tracking, I know I have let some things slide and have tweaked a few points here and there. Could it all be what's derailing me? That and I never know how shark week affects gains and losses.
My setback and failure - gaining...again. Three weeks out of four.
My goal - We decided for each of us (hers is the workout, mine is being a meticulous tracker), the days we do not do as we say we will do, we will pay the other a quarter. Now, I like her and all, but she's not getting my money!
So, why is this my slice...well, I'm getting there.
I came up with a reward in my mind this morning as I packed my bag for Zumba tonight. I have these new tanks from Old Navy. Super cute and I look amazing in them (ha ha). However, I am not going to wear ANY of my new workout gear until I lose. I can lose 0.1 and I'll be able to wear one. Each week - lose and wear a new tank. I have three new tanks. That's three weeks of losing and hopefully obtaining my goal of 5.6.
