Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh in - Week 3

I have a confession to make.

This week I have gone AWOL.  I haven't tracked, I haven't followed and I have pigged out.

I've been working really long, hard hours, suffering from insomnia and just feeling a bit "meh".

However, by the laws of dieting gods, and despite eating chocolate, cake and carbs, I have managed to still lose 2lbs.  I actually feel a bit of a fraud typing that because this week I gave up, I couldn't be bothered.  I self sabotaged.

What I am coming to realise is that dieting for me is not about watching what I am eating, but it is a psychological battle, a case of mind over matter and realising that when I am stressed/sad/tired that chocolate or naughties aren't the answer.  When I gave up smoking years ago, I did it the Alan Carr way and realised that cigarettes can't fill an emotional void, because how can "a cigarette because I am so stressed be the same as a cigarette to relax".  Two opposites, same result.  It just doesn't work like that and I am now slowly coming to that realisation about food.

I'm not one to dwell on the past, today is the start of a new week and whilst I am ECSTATIC that I have continued to lose weight (9lbs in total, 15 lbs to go in my quest to lose 24lbs by Christmas Eve).

This week, more than ever, I need goals.  I set these out below:

1) I will track ANYTHING that passes my lips using the weight watchers app
2) I will drink minimum of 6 glasses of water a day
3) I will limit carbs (this really works for me and affects more than just my waistline, stopping me bloating and feeling sluggish).

I'd love to know how you all get on,  please do link up so I can leave you messages of support as I am really spurred on by all the positive feedback I am getting and need it more than anything to keep me motivated!

Have a good week girls!!

Peace and Love

  1. All going good with me! Although am intending to have a day off tomorrow to celebrate my sons birthday with cake and party food! But having mostly behaved thus far I think I can allow myself a day!

  2. 9lb already is a great start and even though you've had a difficult week, you have still lost 2lb so you must be thinking about it subconsciously! Well done you, hope you have an easier week next week x

  3. Big well done for the beautifully honest post, it is completely a mind thing for me too.

    Just a word of advise, having a loss after a bad eating week can mean a not so god weight loss next week, even if you are really good. So if it gets to weigh in next week and you know you have been great and the scales stay the same or such, don't lose hope it is just evening itself out. It has nearly always happened to me in the past.

  4. I can so understand where you're coming from, if I'm not in the mood to diet NOTHING will stop me eating or drinking. Best of luck with this week and keep up that water intake as it works wonders
