Weigh In & Holiday Parties

I’m down another pound, yes! That brings me to a grand total of 6.4 pounds in 4 weeks, putting my current weight at 188. It’s slightly annoying since I weighed myself at home right before I started Weight Watchers, and it said 184, compared to the 194.4 that Weight Watchers had on their scale. However, I’m trying to go with it, and realize that in the end, those eight or ten pounds don’t really matter.

I’m also getting used to the new Weight Watchers plan, how sugar makes the points value of a food skyrocket. I’m definitely off the office candy bowl. There’s also been a few other times where there has been some great treat in the office, and I didn’t give a second thought to not having any. I also realized that I don’t actually need all the honey that comes in my Fage 2% with honey, which brings the points of the yogurt back down to the original 5 points. Progress!

I'm feeling pretty in control these last few weeks, which is a wonderful feeling indeed. I can gauge how confident I am in my weight loss by what I daydream about while walking to the subway. Is it showing up svelte to my company's holiday party next near, when (hopefully) they would have not seen my transformation because I finally got a new job? Is it running into my sixth grade crush/bully while he's drunkenly peeing in the street and I look great? Or is it what I'd do with 2, 4, or 6 million dollars? It's all in the daydreams, my friends.

How was your office holiday party? Open-bar-fancy-apps or daytime pre-ordered luncheon?


  1. Glad you are feeling good, and are able to navigate the new WW. Office treats are tempting, but usually not worth it. Baked goods by loved ones are a different story!

    Nice daydreams!! I ran into my old school bully a few years ago. He's still stuck in the same small town. Happiness and success in life is truly the best revenge.

    I have four office parties during the holiday season. Still have a breakfast at a fancy hotel, and a lunch pot-luck that I have to show my face at to demonstrate "team spirit" and "social engagement" :)

    1. Four office parties, whoa! That's a challenge, but you can do it!

      Nice one on the bully! Agreed, the best revenge is a life lived well.

  2. Congrats on another pound lost! My new WW scale at home is wonky - I can step on it three different times and get an 11 pound difference! Of course, I always go with the lowest number :D
