Weight update & tracking

Since my last post about weight, when I didn't weigh in, I'm down a total of 4.6 pounds. Slowly but surely the pounds are shedding and I'm okay with that. The slower the better!

I'm not really tracking like I should, and I don't know why. Well, what happens is the weekend throws me off. I do really good on Wednesday, Thursday, and half-day on Friday. I'll update my tracker on Saturday morning and then I don't think about it again until Monday.'s the weekend.

Perhaps I should change my weigh-in day day. I think Saturday would be a good day except, once football season rolls around I travel on the weekends. So that's not good. Perhaps if I were to weigh-in on Monday, my points would reset on the 1st day of the week and I would do better. Then again, I like weighing-in during the middle of the week. I feel like I have time to redeem myself from the weekend, if I don't eat right.

Ohhhhhhh...such a conundrum! What to do? What to do?

What I need to do is track! No matter what.

I recently acquired an iPhone. I have booked marked the WW mobile site so that I can enter my food anytime/anywhere. I have no excuse. I am going to commit the next week to diligent tracking. I know that I need to for success, and I'm aiming for success.

I love weighing in on Saturday morning because then I have a "break" on Saturday night.

And YAY for recommitting to tracking. I know it's not easy. I'm not so diligent about it and know it would help a lot.

I really think weighing-in on Saturday morning would be great, but I know I travel during the fall on the weekends. Maybe I'll change in the spring.

I was in the same boat and over time I did't do much b/c I liked my weigh in day as well, plus the freedom to eat on the weekends & stuff. Now I have had trouble for months, gaining and losing the same pounds. And when I did make progress it would not last for long. I even weigh more now (I think, no scale yet but can feel it) than I have in a long time. I know changing your weigh in day will help. The whole redeeming yourself from the weekend is self sabatoge (trust me I know lol) b/c you allow yourself to be lax with your eating plan. Maybe just having your weigh in day on the weekend for now will help. Good luck to you and everything you do! And you know what I was told, that the greatest stories in life are from those who stuggle. So it's good to sturggle, have to figure some things out b/c you are creating a wonderful story :)

Tracking is essential, but it is hard to do sometimes. I found that Saturday weigh ins are ok, but Monday's work best for me as it keeps me on track through the weekend which is my worst. I am sure you will find a day that suites you best.

Great job on the 4.6 down!!!

Presently, I'm sticking with Wednesday. We'll see how that works. I didn't do so well with the tracking this past week, but I'll keep trying!
