Weekly Weigh In - My "Bad" Weigh In

Life here has been so busy that I haven't had a lot of time for writing blog posts! So while I have a minute let me give you some quick updates.


This past week, my weigh in did not go as expected! All week long I had been weighing myself to make sure that I stayed on track. I thought that I had lost at least a pound or two. However, when I weighed in on Saturday morning the scale showed that I had only lost 0.4 pounds! I was so frustrated. I had worked so hard this week and I wanted it to really show up on the scale.

I am ashamed to admit that my bad attitude lasted all day Saturday. I was pouting, because things had not gone my way. On top of my bad attitude I made a lot of bad food choices and gave into emotional eating, because of how I was feeling.

On Sunday morning, I talked to one of my Weight Watchers members at church. She has done such an amazing job on Weight Watchers, but got off track a little this past week. I was trying to encourage her that it's not about the number on the scale. She has worked hard and a few bad days doesn't mean you should give up all together!

As I spoke these words to my friend, I felt like I needed to hear them more than she did! This is one of the main reasons that I love being a Weight Watchers leader! Here I was trying to give her advice about staying on plan when I had just spent all day Saturday having a pity party for myself. I knew immediately that I needed to get back on track!

I am happy to say that I have been on plan all week!

Why am I sharing this with you? Because I know there are many people out there, just like me, who are trying to lose weight. Do not make the same mistakes that I did this past weekend!

My new favorite picture of me and Olivia!

On a completely different note, Olivia woke up really early this morning. I thought she was hungry, but as soon as I touched her skin I could feel that she had a fever. Sure enough after taking her temperature it said that she was about 100.1...my poor baby.

Please pray that Olivia feels better soon and that my husband and I don't get sick too!

I was so concerned about Olivia's fever that I almost forgot that today is her 5 month birthday!! Time is going by so quickly that I need a pause button to stop and take it all in!!

I had the same "bad" weigh-in. Gained .4 one week, lost .4 the next. Gotta get back to tracking and staying on track. Hope Olivia is feeling better. Will include her in my prayers.

Your baby is so adorable! I will pray for her healing. Lots of germs going around this season. Sometimes its hard to practice what you preach but none the less leading by example is great. Keeping it together on weekend is very hard for me I feel like I always gain what I lost during the week on the weekend. Any helpful adivse on that?

I have felt the same way all week! I have worked so hard the last few weeks to no avail!! So VERY FRUSTRATING!!! Thanks for the encouraging words. I hope your little one feels better soon.

I sooo needed that!! I get discouraged and am my own worst ever critic. If I hang in there and keep the faith you do the same, ok?!

I hope Olivia is feeling better. Happy 5 month birthday sweetie!!

Your post was perfect for me today. I changed a medication this past week. The new one says I could retain fluid. Well this week at weigh-in I gained 2 lbs. I have been on Weight WAtchers for over a year and have never had a weight gain like that. I went over my daily planner and I don't think I changed anything up except for that med. Needless to say, I was very pouty on Monday too.

Isn't it amazing how sometimes what we tell others, we can over look in ourselves?

I often feel the same way about God's grace. I am more likely to remind people that God loves them and forgives them and I often forget the same thing to be true about myself.

Hope you're having a great week! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Holding your family in prayer.
