Stupid Scale

Stupid Scale. It hates me. While I'm on the subject, I hate it too. So I'm up .2 from last week, which at a WW meeting would be considered a "maintain". I'm not sure why, but in some reality I expected my seven miles of walking last week to result in like... a ten pound weight loss. Ha!

So what have I learned? I'm going to have to work the program. I've been sort of doing it my way the last three or so weeks, and while I've managed to maintain I'm certainly not gaining any ground on losing. I have GOT to set myself up to succeed, and instead I'm farting around and setting myself up to fail. Plus that stupid scale hates me.

I've been following my rules this past week - more water, more fruits and veggies. I have, through process of elimination, learned that even yogurt sets off my lactose intolerance, though not as bad as some other things. It is bearable on occasion, but as an every day thing I can't do it. I NEED to eat breakfast, so I'm going back to English Muffins and peanut butter. I've always wondered... what do the English call English Muffins? Muffins? Then what do they call a muffin?

Anyway, so I'm going to try this week to get closer to plan. I sorta got all cheaty on myself a few times with the tracking... I fell into the whole, "well I ate so many of ____ that I just won't track it". So my goals this week:

1. Eat three fruits and/or veggies a day (uh... that's really up from like none a few weeks ago)
2. Drink 3 bottles of water (that will equal my 6/8oz per day)
3. Track it all. No buts. Even if I find myself in a major suckage situation

I have had some good moments this week - I've chosen wisely in a few situations, so power to me on that.

Apparently there is an organization called "Scales United" or something - mine also belong to it. Their goal is to undermine the two-leggeds who would dare to stand on them, by screwing with our minds until we become wimpering puddles of fat with no self esteem whatsoever. Then they shall take over the world.
We must be strong.....we must stand up against those lying, cheating scales and not let them bring us to our sore and aching knees.
It's so good to see you blogging again - I shall try to match your goals, three for three. thanks.
