And The Good News Is...

There is no good news!  I gained again this week- took last week off to go out of town for a wedding, and was at another wedding the week before.  All this celebrating, time in the car, booze, etc., has really got me up on the scale.  It was almost embarrassing at WW this week- there was another Heather who apparently lost 1.2 lbs this week, and the leader announced that and congratulated me... and I had to correct her in front of everyone, that I indeed did NOT lose any weight this week, in fact, I gained 2.2 lbs.  I didn't even log my food, really, for the past week and a half.  Guess what?  It shows.

Day to day, I've been in a pretty good place- happy, excited, lots of stuff going on.  That's great.  It is, however, disappointing to weigh in, and find that you've gained, yet again.  We aren't going out of town this weekend, so I'm going to start with a small goal- just keep track of everything I eat this weekend.  Every.  Last.  Bite.  That's it.  Hopefully that will start to curb my bad habits and start forming some new, good ones. 

I can't say this came as a shock or surprise- I knew re-joining WW in the beginning of September this year would be hard- inundated with weddings, wedding planning, and soon!  a trip to Denver for the Great American Beer Festival- none of which lend themselves to healthy eating- but hopefully the damage is a little more controlled than it would've been had I just been flying solo.

Here's to a good weekend, and keeping myself in check.

This week: +2.2 lbs
Total: -4.4 lbs


  1. Never give up! This is a long journey. A lifetime journey, and not all will go perfectly according to plan. But stick with it, and you will experience more successes than failures.

    And I am jealous that you get to go to the GABF! Enjoy one (or two) for me!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Trevor! And yes! We're SOOOOO excited for GABF!!!! I'll be sure to have one (or a few) on your behalf!

  2. How was the GABF? Which one (ones?) did you drink on my behalf?

    1. Trevor- it was amazing! I tried a lot of interesting beers- I tried Hot Thoup from Dogfish Head ( which was GROSS; I tried Russian River's Pliney the Elder, which was great; Port City's Porter, which is one of my favorite Porters- and many, many others. Which is why i haven't weighed in since GABF- I totally went overboard on the beer, and you know what the food options are like at those things. It was a great weekend in general though- my favorite part was on that Friday, we rented a car and drove to Boulder and spent the day walking around- it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.
