Weigh-In ... A Sweets Week

Today's Weight:  191.4
Loss/Gain:  +0.2 lbs

Well, for what I would consider my "worst" week on Weight Watchers so far I'm pretty pleased with only gaining 1/5 of a pound.  

It's been a week of trying new recipes...
Oreo Truffles (or cake balls)

Whoopies Pies - A Lancaster Co. original style recipe... I've been looking for one for years and this one was perfect! (Note:  If you make this recipe, use shortening -- like stated in Step 1 and not oil as listed in ingredients.)

And tasting them to make sure they are fit to serve.  I don't believe in serving things I haven't tried myself.  :)  

Then there was visiting with friends two different times and only once did I have a choice in the food.  I simply ordered what sounded good and ate til I was satisfied. 

I over did it on the Oreo Cake Balls and that put me in the negative weekly points on Tuesday.  My feeling that it's best, for me, to save the majority of my extra weekly points for the weekend still stands true. 

It was an awful feeling to see -__ weekly points staring back at me all week, and knowing I had no real wiggle room.  

Even though I was in the negative with my extra points I wasn't going to starve myself in order to see a loss on the scale.  I got in four good days of exercise and didn't throw caution to the wind despite my treats.  I think it was Saturday when I decided if I could just hold on til the new week starts on Monday without gaining too much I would be content with that. 

Oh, one more thing... I was a bit stressed out this weekend and I am pleased to say that while I was content to see a maintain or even a slight gain on the scale, I didn't throw caution to the wind due to my stress.  

So, all in all... points-wise I had the "worst" week on Weight Watchers, but I think I did just fine over all.  

I'm in no rush and I know this is all a [re]learning process.  And today I rejoiced that I didn't see a multiple-pound gain that I was afraid might happen.  Woo hoo!


  1. It's good that you didn't let being in the negative derail you all together!
