I have a Confession (part 2)...

I don't always go to my weight watchers meetings.

Eeek! I said it.  Nobody heard that right?

Yes, sometimes I skip my regular meeting when I know I am going to be "up" on the scale. I always make it up later in the week, but on a more favorable day.

I guess that is cheating maybe? But sometimes I think if I go to WW watchers and I have a gain, it will set me back mentally.  Why does it mean so much more when someone writes it in that little tan book? I don't know.  

Anyway, today I woke up and it was one of those days again! I've been doing Wendi's plan and it IS working. But the weekends are killing me! That is when I tend to overindulge and then I don't stick to my plan. When I woke up I knew I had gained (I think it had something to do with the nachos & cheese I had at the movies...) and I DID NOT want to go to WW.  I considered pulling my usual meeting switch-a-roo. 

But today I figured "No, I have to face the music." So I went to my meeting- and I did gain- a 1/2 pound. Nothing major, not a huge setback. But NOT a loss. Surprisingly, I wasn't upset. I was actually really glad I went to my meeting because we talked about how to survive the weekend (and holidays, birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.). Actually, I ended up getting a few good tips from the other members. Like planning out Sat.'s menu on Friday, and writing it in my tracker. Also to drink a lot of water AND to practice the 3 bite method. 

So, I'm glad that I went to my meeting (despite officially "gaining").  And I think that knowing I gained may help fuel a big loss for this week- I'd like to hit 164 by the time I go home April 8th. That way I will have lost a total of 20 pounds since the last time I saw my family. Soooooo...send me some skinny vibes, my friends!!!

Whew... so that was my dieting confession, what's yours?????

Till next time, See You Bitches Lighter!!!


  1. That's not cheating, that's just setting yourself up for success. I started out with my weigh-ins on Mondays, but it was just too hard after a hard-partying weekend.
    So I switched them to Wednesdays, and it's been much better. And I like the sound of "Weigh-In Wednesdays." :)

    With Wednesday as my day I still have Monday and Tuesday to really buckle down, with no weekly points left, and make sure I make up for the damage I did over the weekend.

    If you have to switch your weigh-in every now and then, it's fine. Besides, you've lost 29.7 pounds! It's not like you would have only lost 2 if you weighed in yesterday! You rock and inspire me, keep up the good work!!!

  2. Glad the Wendi Plan works for you too. I think it has worked for me also! I wouldn't know what to tell you about your WW meetings because I do all of that online. But as long as your still going every week...I don't see how your cheating. The weekends kill me to, but I plan them like you were saying.. I plan my meals for those days before they even come so that they are written in black and white and for me, it helps. Better luck this week! =)

  3. I sometimes do the same thing. I found it helped me a LOT to switch to an early Saturday morning meeting, which helped me to relax a bit and enjoy the weekend without stressing... I used to do Sunday and it was really hard. Are there Saturday meetings near you?

  4. Luckily, the times I've skipped I would have lost anyways... but I confess I don't always go either. It's rare, but it does happen!

    So far I haven't had a single gain! I'm thrilled with that! It proves I mean it this time!
