Weigh In Wednesday: Week Eighteen

This was my first full week on Weight Watchers new Smart Points system and while I did really well for the first couple days during the work week, when Friday hit so did a very, very busy weekend and a head cold. I don’t know about you, but when I get sick all I want are comfort foods, which are not known for being the best choices. So I was pleasantly surprised to step on the scale and see a loss:

Starting weight: 259.8
Last Week: 260.6
This week: 259.2
Weight lost this week: -1.4
Total weight lost: -0.6
I’m sure Weight Watchers has their reasons for introducing this new plan right before the holiday season, but man. I mean, this time of year is hard enough with all the parties and such, it’s difficult as it is just to survive without going completely off the rails, let alone trying to do that and get used to a new system where foods that were already splurges now use up even more points.

This past weekend was an early Christmas with BC’s family and of course actual Christmas is this weekend with my family. I tend to do okay during the work week because it’s structured and I pack lunches and such, but weekends are hard. Holiday weekends are the hardest of all.

The first two days of this week have, uh, not been good so, seriously: right now I’m just trying to make it through the rest of 2015 without gaining 10 pounds.

  1. Historically WW always introduces the new plan in December. That gives existing members time to learn it before the influx of people at the New Year and allows WW to get everything set up and work out the kinks for January when usually a lot of people join. Given how big the change is to SmartPoints though I know some people are just waiting until the New Year to start it.
