That’s what I gained this week. 😦 It’s gotta be those cookies and cookie dough I ate on the weekend. Plus, I haven’t been tracking what I’ve been eating the last few days and I think that does make a difference. It’s easy to overeat when I’m not paying attention.
I went to the morning Weight Watchers meeting instead of the evening yesterday for a change. Adrian hasn’t wanted to stay for the actual meetings lately, but I feel like I need them to remain focused. I enjoyed our meeting nights because it was nice to have that time alone with Adrian. (Mom comes and watches the kids so that we can go.) I’d miss out on the evening out together alone on Thursdays, but the meeting and the support I get from them are important to me as well. So unless he starts staying for the meetings, I’ll be switching to the morning and he’ll go on his own in the evening. The other downside is that I’d have to take the kids with me to the meeting which they won’t be thrilled with, but oh well.
Anyway, at the meeting I saw a few other women I know. One of the ladies, “Ch”, is from our Junior Forest Wardens club. Just when I was getting down on myself for gaining this week she gave me some good advice. “It’s a whole lifestyle change that can’t really be measured a week at a time.” In other words, this was just one week. It’s helped to remember that when those discouraging thoughts creep back into my mind. Thanks, Ch!
We had a dinner at Adrian’s work last night, too. The plan was that Adrian was going to go the meeting on his own afterwards, but he didn’t. That’s my other concern if we go to separate meetings: he might end up quitting. And he’s been doing so well! But I can’t force him. We’ll just have to see what happens.
