Weigh In – 7/23/12

My first week back on plan didn’t go perfectly.

I went out with friends on Tuesday night – though I did the best I could as far as tracking what I ate/drank there.

Saturday morning, my mom and I went to see the new Batman movie and went to the Fork & Screen showing.  We shared crab rangoon dip (YUM) and I got a grilled chicken sandwich with fries (one of their better choices). I didn’t eat all of the bun or the fries, however. This meal, I didn’t even bother trying to track – I just did the best I could the rest of the day. And I’m sure all the drooling I did over Christian Bale HAD to have burned some calories. 😉 (Note: My heart and prayers and love go out to those touched by the terrible shooting in Colorado.)

And so I had my first weigh-in from being fully back on track today – I’m not counting my other half-assed attempts to get back on track – and have to admit I was pleased.

I’m down 7.1 pounds this week! Yeah, I’m not going to complain. I know that’s just the luck of the first week back and my other weeks won’t be as good, but I’m pretty damn happy and proud of myself. It’s also proved to me that I can splurge a little bit (at least right now) and that I don’t have to be perfect and can still stay on track.

I’m down a total of 8.7 lbs from my most recent highest weight, and I’ve decided not to focus on the end game for now. I don’t even have a goal weight in mind really – just kind of a general area. I’m just going to go until I’m happy with where I am – screw whatever anyone else says I should weigh. Weight Watchers included.  I do have over 100 lbs that I want to lose, though, so I have a long way to go. I did it once  – I can do it again.  Like last time, I’m going to focus on five pound increments instead of looking at the big picture.
