Since I last posted, I went out of town to my roommate's lake house in Michigan for Memorial Day weekend. It was amazing to get out of the city for a few days, and we all had a fabulous time. Also... I didn't track for 2.5 days.
This was pretty monumental for me, considering I started WW two weeks before Thanksgiving, and have religiously tracking my points every damn day since then. Yes, I tracked on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, and even my birthday. But for some reason, I just wanted a little break. There was delicious food everywhere (filet! potato salad! chicken sausage! licorice! lemon squares!), so I took full advantage. And there may or may not have been a quarter pounder in there too (hint: there was).
What did I learn from two days tracker free? Well, for starters, while I ate pretty crappily, I realized I was actually eating LESS than what I normally eat. I didn't realize how much I'm used to eating, because I'm eating fruits and vegetables (which are mostly zero points) all the time. So, without my arsenal of fruits and veggies, I wasn't eating as much as usual. However, of the food I did eat, not much of it was healthy.
But what I also learned was that I am truly thankful for Weight Watchers, because it really has changed my life. Even though I joked for the first
So the downside to my weekend of eating was a 2lb gain, but it was also my time of the month, so I'm not convinced that's the true damage I did. Either way, it was worth it.
And I just snuck a peek at the scale this morning, and I plan to have an amazing weigh-in this Wednesday. The 50lb milestone is coming up next, and I can't wait to get there!
