Moving In the Right Direction

Impossible PerfectionExperience has taught me that it’s best to not go into my Weight Watchers meetings with specific expectations.  I always go in feeling confident and that doesn’t change whether I am up or down, but I don’t go in feeling dead set that I am going to be down that week because then I feel really defeated if I’m not.  Michael asked me this morning how I thought I was going to do and my response was “I was down yesterday, so I hope I am down, but who knows?”

I am happy to report that I was in fact down today; 3.2 lbs. to be exact.  Needless to say, I was extremely happy.  After gaining over the course of the last two weeks, I would have been happy no matter how much I was down, but 3.2 lbs. was way more than I would have ever allowed myself to hope for.

Weight 8.15.14

I can feel my goal of being less than 200 lbs. coming within my grasp again.  I am only 3.4 lbs. away and I will continue to work diligently to get there.  I’m not sure why that number continues to elude me, but it may as well know that I am going to get there!!!

I sat in my meeting trying to think of what I could have possible done differently this past week than I did the two weeks prior.  The interesting thing was that the only difference was that I actually worked out a little bit less this week than the two weeks before.  This week I had 40 Activity Points Plus®, last week I had 51, and the week before I had 47.

While I realize that muscle weighs more than fat, I also know that we each have our own optimum levels of activity.  What’s right for me may not necessarily be right for you.  This has raised my curiosity and now I want to go back and look at the weeks when I had high amounts of activity versus the weeks when my activity was slightly lower and see on which weeks I tend to lose more weight.

Don’t worry; I have no intention of EVER stopping exercise.  The amazing differences it has made in my health and my life are undeniable and there is no way I am willing to give those things up.  I think I just need to keep working to find the right balance for me and I definitely need to work on putting variety in my exercise routine.

I hope you all have a wonderful AND active weekend!

  1. Way to go Kassie!!

    As always you give good food for thought. I have been a victim of.my expectations and I know how that can be. I am on a very active vacation. This week. My next weigh in will be next Friday. Part of me is excited to see a nice, two week number. But the cautious realist says to cool my jets. Time will tell
