Sometimes no news is good news . . . or in the case of losing weight, staying exactly the same. I’m actually satisfied with this week’s weigh in considering how my Memorial Day weekend went. Weekends have always been my downfall of working the Weight Watchers program. Especially a holiday weekend.
About midway into the weekend, I just stopped tracking in my journal. I know. I know.
The struggle is real yall!
Sometimes I just get so caught up in the moment that I don’t want to track and worry about what I’m eating and drinking. I just want to be like everyone else and order what ever the hell I want! I want to be able to enjoy an adult beverage or two or three without worrying about dipping into my weekly points allowance! I don’t want to go to the trouble of going out to eat and ordering some dry ass piece of chicken with vegetables! I can eat that miserable shit at home! Sometimes you just want to sip on a Strawberry Daiquiri and enjoy LIFE!
Ok, rant over!
Even though I stopped tracking, I did make better choices when ordering my food. For example, you can’t live in Coastal Virginia and NOT order soft shell crabs when they are in season. It’s just a thing and they are irresistibly delicious! BUT, I didn’t get the fries.
We had a blast this holiday weekend, I enjoyed my meals and my drinks and most of all my LIFE. I lived in the moment and enjoyed every second of it!
We got a lot of yard work done so I didn’t do any extra activity/exercise because pulling weeds and planting things is back breaking enough. Don’t you think?
I was worried that I might gain weight but instead I stayed the same and sometimes no news is good news and I’m ok with that.
How did you do over the Memorial Day weekend?

“When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn’t the worst thing in the world.”
