When I was a member of weight watchers, I weighed in on Saturdays. I loved weighing in on Saturdays because a gain or a loss helped recomit to healthy eating and exercise. I didn't want to ruin what I had worked so hard for. And it gave me an opportunity to make an action plan for the new week.
Because of my lack of exercise for the last few weeks and my having intermittent binges, I obviously have gained 2.5 lbs. I normally maintain at 205 because although I usually had periods of exercising 4-5 days out of the week, I ate so many calories that the scale wouldn't budge. I am being more conscious of my eating, but I am still not calorie counting or writing in a journal. Bad, I know. I am going on my feelings of satiety or "pushing away from the table", as my hubby likes to say; and I am going to be in touch with my emotions if I want a bit more at meal times or if I want to snack before my "scheduled" time.
SHORT TERM GOALS (3 MONTHS):
