Some days it gets a lot harder to stick within my points range than others and as hard as I try to stay away from point heavy foods, I do on occasion cave.
This week I had a piece of cake, a brisket sandwich, "real" macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes with brown gravy and French fries so imagine my surprise when the scale tells me that I lost 1.2 lbs this week.
Part of me feels really bad because I know had I chosen healthier options I would have lost more weight this week, getting me to my goal weight sooner. But the other part knows that cutting out these foods completely out of my life makes me crave them even more.
I was smart and did choose smaller portions of those items and I exercised this week as usual but I didn't really pay attention to my points this week, especially towards the end of the week.
I don't want to regain my bad eating habits and the weight I've lost so this week I'm going to try to be good, stick with healthier options and pay attention to my points!
Anyhow here's the quote Weight Watchers gave me:
WAY TO GO! Congratulations for losing weight this week. We hope you're thrilled with the result. Here's a quote by Aristotle that we thought might strike a chord with you: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." Keep practicing your excellence and have a great week.
