Face the Scale Friday: Week Five

It’s Friiiiiiiidaaaaaayyyyyy! You know what that means!

Daily Points: 38
Weekly Points used this week: 49/49
Activity Points earned this week: 17
Remaining Points at end of week: -70

Weight lost this week: +2.2
Total weight lost: –4
Starting weight: 259.8
Current weight: 255.8

Not going to lie, I am completely content with what the scale showed this week because of this:

Negative 70. And that’s after earning 17 Activity Points. So a gain of 2.2? Please. I’ve gained that from weeks that were nowhere near as bad. Plus, I only know I’m in the negative so far because I stuck to my plan of Track It and Move On. I tracked everything I ate and y’know what? It kept me accountable. Like Wednesday night, I was in bed and really really craving some ice cream and I had some Weight Watchers ice cream bars and they are only 3 points but I was already at -70 and I just told myself those ice creams are still going to be in the freezer tomorrow.

This is one of those weeks that shows why I call this Face the Scale Friday, because sometimes it does feel like facing the music in a way and just owning up and accepting the consequences from my decisions. Whenever you know you have a gain it’s easy to want to skip the weigh in, but even if you don’t get the confirmation, you still gained the weigh regardless. So you might as well just know where you stand and make a new game plan for the coming week!

Love from the ashes,

  1. Amen, sister. I remember the first time I went deeeeeeeeep in the hole, I wound up turning it around and realizing what an accomplishment it was to actually KNOW that I was that deep in the hole. “Old me” wouldn't have bothered tracking at all because as long as it's not documented, it didn't happen, right? So yeah, it's pretty awesome that you even know you were -70. Way to track it and move on!
