Ok, so I didn’t post after my weigh in this week, and why? Because I wasn’t a happy bunny.
I walked miles last week, at least 5 miles a day, which is a lot more than I am used to! I haven’t been taking the car anywhere unless it’s absolutely necessary come rain or shine, and I am enjoying it, but I am gutted that my weigh in on Saturday morning didn’t pan out like I had hoped.
I did lose a thing. I felt so deflated to see the numbers, I hadn’t expected to lose a lot, but I had expected a loss of some sort. I have a few theories though, now I’m over my initial freak out.
- The week before I lost 4lbs, but I wasn’t well – so maybe it wasn’t a true loss, the girl who weighed me said the same – maybe I gained a couple lb back, and lost it again, which is not a bad thing – just one of the perils of being unwell and losing a bunch.
- I hate WW, I do – I liked it for a few weeks but the App is such a piece of crap. Everything I search for or scan, unless it is a generic food just isn’t there. I was finding it so frustrating – as I walk around tescos trying to scan and it’s not there, so then I try to use the calculator but I have no connection cos for some reason in that particular Tesco it’s a black hole of no phoneness – I want to punch people, but I don’t. So, I went back to MFP and I am giving that a go, now my WW sub has already been taken out my bank – so I will still go to weigh in, and if it works I may even still keep going cos I kinda like their little shop, and I like being praised for losing weight (when I do.) – so the shift in diets may not have helped – MFP told me I need to eat 1200 – but that is what it generically tells everyone who needs to lose a bunch of weight, so I worked out my TDEE and BMR and I think I have the right number, but I reached out to a friend on MFP to help me, so we will see.
It was just so disheartening. I am not having a fun time in any way, shape or form in life at the moment and all the walking, the eating well, I thought it would brighten my day – alas it did not, but I shall keep at it. We shall see what the scales say this week!
