I must admit to a sense of constant surprise with this whole Weight Loss thing...
For instance; I fail to see how I can exactly maintain for two weeks in a row when one weigh in I'm wearing long pants, and the next weigh in, I'm wearing capris. That's a minimum of two square feet less denim. How could I gain exactly as much weight as the denim weighed? Which would be what would have had to have happened, right?
Or, for instance, how could Thomas consistently lose the same amount of weight, week after week? We turned in our Week 3 coupons last night, and of those 12 weigh ins (past the initial one) he's lost exactly .8 pounds 6 times.
Or, this week: we BOTH lost EXACTLY the same amount of weight. Despite the fact that Thomas weighed in on Wednesday (because he was sick on Monday), so he's actually lost weight faster than me. (He was down 3 pounds on Wednesday).
We were both down 3 pounds last night, which took both of us over the 15 pounds lost (see my shiny new badge??) marker. (The group lost a total of 39 pounds, so we weren't the only ones who resisted the temptation to dive mouth first into an Easter basket, but I did hear a lot of grumbling from the back of the room from people who did...)
Anyway, the plan is to stick to Core for at least another week. I know what part of my problem is on Flex, honestly: It's that I dragon up my points and then eat a bunch of 100-cal packs after dinner to get caught up on my points. If I can use Core to establish better early in the day eating habits, I think that'll do me a lot of good.
I haven't really felt the need to pile on the food after dinner this week. Most nights, I've eaten a smallish snack after dinner, around 9pm, but it's nothing like the mini-binge of Weight Watcher's chocolates, cheese squares and crackers, or Smart Ones desserts that I've been doing.
Hope everyone else is having a great check in!
