Okay, be warned. This is probably going to sound really weird, but I swear I'm not as odd as this makes me sound. I SWEAR. *L*
So. I did WW for sixteen months. Lost 65 pounds. Felt great! Awesome, actually. Reached my goal weight and hit lifetime on May 9, 2012.
Then...like a lot of people....I got stupid and figured, "Hey, I can totally do this on my own now!"
WRONG. I have figured out, after trying calorie counting *several* times, that I really need the face-to-face support of the WW meetings (I did try WW Online a couple times, too, but it didn't work as well as the meetings for me.) Anyway, long story short, I've gained back 20 pounds over the time I've been away from WW meetings.
Now. I will be the first to admit that when I did WW the first time around, I did some kind of not-so-healthy things on weigh-in day. (Actually, they were quite UNhealthy.) My weigh-in was in the evening (6 PM), so I would eat breakfast and a small lunch and then just...not eat anything else until after my weigh-in. Which would be okay for some people, I guess, but I have hypoglycemia and going that long without eating just didn't work so well for me. I was going about 7 hours in between meals and by the time I got home from my meeting I was almost ready to faint.
So I'm starting back at my meetings tonight. What I want to figure out is how I can space my eating on weigh-in days so that I'm not half-dead by the time I get home, but I'm not full of food when I get weighed (because obviously that will throw off the numbers.)
What I was thinking of doing is this:
This morning, I had breakfast at 10 AM.
I plan to eat "lunch" at around 2 PM.
My weigh-in is at 6, and I plan to take a granola bar with me so that as soon as I'm weighed, I can eat that to tide me over until I get home after my meeting.
Is there anyone else here who has an evening weigh-in? What do you all do? I just really don't want to fall back into my old unhealthy habits.
