No ghosts at my celebration
Weigh-in day number 48. Yes, it’s the 48th week, and I’m pleased to report that I have lost a total of 31.8 pounds, and .8 of it was captured in today’s weigh-in.
Every now and then, I check my starting weight and the weigh-in weight to make sure that the subtraction along the way was done correctly. The women who weigh us in have lots going on and every once and a while, a mistake is made. I knew that something was off in my total because I was told that I had lost 32 pounds.
In the interest of accuracy as I approach the 50th week milestone, I had to have it corrected. By spot -checking, I saw that I had to have lost an amount that ended with a part of a pound. I was hoping that I was going to find out that it was more than 32 pounds. It ended up .2 less.
That’s okay. Not knowing how much I really have lost is the equivalent of not tracking all the points in everything I eat. Eventually, it will come back to haunt me. I don't need any ghosts celebrating with me at my 50th week anniversary of joining Weight Watchers.
Talk to you soon.
