When up is down
It didn’t start out the way I thought it would. I walked to Weight Watchers for the first time since I sprained my ankle 10 weeks ago and looked forward to seeing a loss on the scale. If you remember, last week I gained 2.6 pounds after three weeks of travel and restaurant dining.
I got on the scale to be disappointed at a .2-pound gain. How could that have happened…I walked back to my seat and found myself distracted and thinking about this surprise. And then it dawned on me that I had forgotten to take off my shoes and my jacket when I got on the scale. I had been chatting with the woman who weighed me in and totally missed my usual clothing removal exercise.
I got back out of my seat, went back to the scale and did my weigh-in properly. I lost .6 pounds this week and was back to feeling in control. All records were corrected, and I left the meeting knowing that I had another two pounds to get rid of to be back to where I was a month ago.
I did walk 3.75 miles today, including a stop off to vote on the way home from my meeting. I also am pleased to report that I have candy to send to the troops and want to thank my fellow Weight Watchers friends for bringing it to the meeting.
Talk to you soon.
