The good things is that I immediately thought, “at least it wasn’t a gain.” So, yes I am happy that I maintained but I really thought I would see a loss. This is where it is hard for me. I came into Weight Watchers with a different mindset this time then the last time I was a member. The last time, I would have focused on all of the things I didn’t do perfect and why there wasn’t a loss. This time I am just trying to let it go and focusing on what I did positively (this is a work in progress for me).
Each week is a new challenge in changing my mindset, that is why I have welcomed the losses, the gains, and this past week the maintain. Each week I am working on changing my relationship with the scale and focusing how my body feels, my clothes feel, and how my mind feels. Some weeks are so much harder than others. This being past one being one of them. However, I think it was the best week for me so far since rejoining Weight Watchers when it comes to mindset.
I just want to feel good and feeling good doesn’t mean I have to rely on the scale to dictate how I feel. I am moving on from that and each week I am see improvements on how I feel when I step on the scale and see the number.
Going forward, I am still going to do my Weekly Weigh In Recap, I am just going to try to put a different spin on it. I am thinking I will talk more about my feelings but with everything related to this blog I am trying to figure out what works best so that could mean that it will change ten more times before I find the right formula… Until next week!
