Moo.

So I'm sort of on Weight Watchers Lite (aka, WW Online, in which I answer only to myself, and can decide to take a week off for some reason or other and not have to answer to others' disapproving stares, haha.) The great thing is you weigh in once a week, which broke me of my habit of weighing myself a few times every day, and if you lose between 1-2 lbs, it makes you feel super good. (If you lose more than 2, unless it's the first three weeks, it tells you you're dropping too fast.) The thing is, if you gain? The site's still uber-supportive, but I can't help feeling like a piece of bloated, fat crap.

So, to combat the second 1+ weight gain in two weeks, I went running =P I've been having my craptacularity of the month, which I blamed for part of the weight gain, but the second one? I had no clue!

Post-running, I'd dropped 1.8 lbs of water weight. WATER WEIGHT. I put that number in the weight tracker instead. Maybe I am just fooling myself, but if fooling myself means I feel better, go running for half an hour, am high off endorphins and eat a tasty, healthy cereal breakfast? Screw it, I'm deluding myself all the time!

On other notes, I'm not as screwed with work today, but I still should go to class soon, after cereal. Woops.

I wouldn't be too worried about 1 or 2 pounds. Just compare your weights before and after you go to the bathroom! The best way to track your weight loss is to have as similar circumstances as possible when you do your weigh-in - same clothes, same time of day, same stomach contents, etc.

I swear, water is the scale's worst enemy, sigh. It's too bad I can't get myself on a more strict schedule to decrease all the variability!

I do WW too! I've got the online stuff but I'm around so many people who eat a lot a lot a lot of junkfood that going to meetings just helps me more than not though.

Yeah, I thought the meetings would help me be more accountable. I think now that I'm living off-campus, though, I've been able to limit some of my junk food, but if I can't keep weight off, yeah, I should probably go to the meetings, haha.
