I think my Wii Fit Scale is on crack, since last week it told me I was up, and my official weigh in ended up being down, and ditto this week. I expected to go in to my weigh in and have Fran make that terrible little face; I call it the Weight Smile. She sort of tilts her head to one side, take a deeeeeeep breath, then lets it out with a very quick, "You'reupalittle,notmuch,tho,just.6
andthathappensyouknow." And then she smiles. It's a painful grimacing mockery of a smile, and honestly, in the last 18 months that I've been a member of weight watchers, I think I've grown to hate that smile more than anything else.
But instead, I was down 1.4 pounds. This is good; and at the same time, bad.
I have lost another daily point.
(On the plus side, this should be the last point I ever lose, since I don't intend to try to lose more weight than will take me to 130 pounds. Or at least, I don't intend, officially, to get my weight down below that...)
Down to 19 points a day. That's approximately 950 - 1,330 calories a day.
I don't know why moving down fifty calories a day is worrying me so much.
Maybe it's because I don't know many people who are down in that weight range. Most of the people I know who are at their goal weight are lots taller than I am; Thomas, for his maintenance range, eats about 38-40 points a day. (I know, he doesn't really count...) Other people I know in maintenance weigh in around 140 - 180 pounds... (lucky tall people!) and are eating 22-27 points a day, or have given up on points...
Sometimes I feel like I could pile all my food for the day onto one full-sized plate and a "normal" person could eat that as an entire meal. (You know I used to...)
It's a little frightening.
