Between the Akron Marathon Relay and 10K Training, this was the first week where I wasn’t panicked over eating through all of my points and then some because I knew I had put in a lot of exercise and movement to earn activity points. I was also pretty confident in the food choices I made this week and luckily it all paid off on the scale!
Of course, you’ll also notice that +9.8 lbs. So I realized after weighing in that it’s been one whole year since I recommitted to Weight Watchers and here I am, 10 lbs heavier than I was a year ago. So, y’know, there’s that.
Whatever. I’ve learned to not focus so much on the big picture like that. I mean, okay, sure, I’m 10 lbs above what I was last year. But y’know what? Between October 2013 and October 2014, I gained forty pounds. So gaining 10 lbs between October 2014 and October 2015 isn’t great, but it could be so much worse. A year is also the longest I’ve consistently been weighing in at Weight Watchers in quite awhile.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that success comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes and sometimes you have to look beyond the more obvious definitions to define it for yourself.
Love from the ashes,
