Unfortunately my home scale is UP 5lbs - EEK! Yesterday I decided to have a 'Free Day' which was probably a bad idea but I did it anyhow. My daughter and I went to the movies because it was her birthday and I brought a bag of Chocolate Chex Mix from home but we ended up getting popcorn. I sat there eating both, THEN after the movie I decided to grab 2 $5 pizzas from Little Ceasars. I ate 3 pieces and I know the sodium in both the pizza and popcorn is most likely due to the gain.
When I first began Weight Watchers I would give myself free days because I knew if I didn't, I wouldn't be able to stick to the plan. I had no problem with losing every week but now that I'm closer to goal it's getting harder. I'm thinking I should stop having these days where I completely go off track and just allow myself a special treat once a week of maybe ice cream or even a burger while counting the points.
********Oh Kim, you are awesome! Your post couldn't have come at a better time for me. I have been ''slipping" as I call it and gotten off track completely. Today is my weigh in but I haven't done it yet because I'm afraid of what i might see. One of the most important things I learned in WW is that even if you "slip" to get right back on it. In the past, I would've given up completely. I am proud of ALL the women on this forum for their successes thus far, but after reading how everyone was doing so well I felt like a total loser. So thanks for telling it like it is and here's to this upcoming week being much better for the both of us and for all the ladies to have continued success!
