WW: It's moving again!

I accounted for every single point this week and measured everything that I ate. One thing I really need to work on is portion control, I don't quite understand how much I'm serving myself and what I thought was one cup of pasta was actually more like two cups.

I also don't realize how filling one cup of pasta can really be because to me it doesn't look like a portion for one, it looks more like something you'd serve a child but having been a fat child I was already eating bigger portions so of course I don't know what a proper serving is.

I also have to understand that I'm going to have to eat like this for the rest of my life, not just until I reach my goal weight. The second I don't pay attention to how much I'm eating, I'm going to gain it all back which is evident with what happened with holiday overindulgence!

Oh and it's not diet or exercise, it's both! I may have accounted for every single point but at the end of the week I had only logged in three hours on the treadmill and two of those hours were put in last night!

Okay, okay enough with the rambling - so how much did I lose this week..........3.6lbs!

Which means I've almost lost almost all the weight I put on during holiday overindulgence!

That's fantastic news right, down 3.6 lbs? Um, no! Not according to Weight Watchers here's the message I got:

WELL DONE! You've recorded a loss this week. That's great news!

However, we notice that you've lost more than an average of 2 pounds per week over three or more weeks. This rate is too rapid — it may be unsafe or unhealthy.While we're proud of your achievements and pleased you're making changes in your life, we need you to concentrate on one more thing: You should slow the pace of your weight loss to no more than 2 pounds per week.

Have a great week!

Are you freakin' serious! I only exercised for three hours this week, I stuck to my points and I even dipped into my weekly points, so I have no idea how I lost so much this week!

I seriously wish I could lose 3.6 lbs every week, especially on the weeks where I'm really working hard and I lose point nothing points or even gain!

This is crap, and they left me without a quote! Bastards!

Oh, I forgot to mention I had to buy some underwear this week and I bought a size down from the ones I've been wearing. I was thinking if they don't fit, they will eventually - but they actually fit right now! So I'm down one size in underwear!

Don't worry about what they say. You didn't starve yourself, and you didn't over-exercise, so if your body wants to lose that much weight, let it.
Ignore what they say when you loose more than 2lbs, they say it just to cover their own asses!

3.6lbs is a wicked loss, keep up the great work. I myself also gained over Christmas, I think 90% of people do so try not to be so hard on yourself!!
YAY!!! Ignore the comment - they're just saying that to cover their butts legally. You did great! As always, you inspire me! And since they again left you quoteless, here are two.

First, from Real Genius (still one of my favorite funny movies):
Chris Knight: Kent put his name on his license plate.
Mitch: My mother does that to my underwear.
Chris Knight: Your mother puts license plates in your underwear? How do you sit?

Second: "Marge, you being a cop makes you the man! Which makes me the woman -- and I have no interest in that, besides occasionally wearing the underwear, which as we discussed, is strictly a comfort thing." - Homer Simpson
Wow!! Way to go! Don't listen to that silly comment...your body knows what it's doing.

I gained 6lbs over the Holidays so my butt is back in the gym. I also started dieting, but last night after a hard 1.5 hours in the gym I couldn't sleep. I finally realized I was freaking hungry!! I got up and ate two slices of pizza at 2am and then slept like a baby. Eck! It's back to the gym for me :o) and I have to remember that my body needs carbs!
Hi there- congrats on the loss!!! I also stopped by to tell you that I voted for you in the Best of Blog awards... hope you're doing well :)
