I'd really like input from you guys. I'm trying not to get discouraged, and I'm plugging along, but....
I'm just starting my 4th week. I get 33 daily points and 34 weekly points.
Week 1 (I had 34 daily for this week): I only had 2 days of 7 not meeting my daily points, and that was only by 1 point. By week's end I had racked up 2 activity points, and had 22 weekly points left. Now, granted I know that the first week is going to be bigger and water weight and etc, but I lost 8.5 pounds.
Week 2: I had 4 days of being a scootch under my daily points. I had 25.5 weekly points left, and racked up 8 activity points. I lost 2 pounds.
Week 3: 3 days of going under my daily a little. 27.5 weekly left, 8 activity. I lost a big fat 0, lol.
I didn't measure myself until yesterday for the first time, so I don't have those numbers to go by.
I didn't really change anything in the weeks as to what I ate, or when I ate. Well, thats not entirely true. The first 2 weeks I had one day each week that I went over by 6-8 points and it was due to a "splurge" food (i.e. hot wings from Domino's, for example). the 3rd week I was mostly "good".
However, also in that 3rd week (and even some days of the 2nd week), I kept finding myself with 7-9 points leftover after dinner....and I wasn't really all that hungry! But I knew I shouldn't go under by that much, so I snacked.
My weigh-in day is Sunday. I've been more conscious so far this week about not going under.
Opinions please? Is this just how it goes? I mean, yeah I'm walking as my activity but it's not power-walking or anything. I don't think I can claim it's muscle building up. IMO, I ate less, I consumed less calories therefore I should have lost weight.......no? Am I being silly for wanting to see those "loss" numbers to give me the "reward"/motivation to continue?
thanks in advance......
