I’ve been tracking my weight using the Weight Watchers online tools. Of course, tools are only as good as the person using them. If you don’t use the tools properly then they don’t work properly. So today is my weigh-in day and I dutifully tracked my weight. I’ve managed to lose every week even if it is in small amounts. Well, this week turned around and kicked me in the gut. I’d gained 1 pound. Now, you might be thinking “big deal, it’s only a pound.” But one pound leads to two which leads to three and next thing you know it’s 10 pounds up the road. When I entered my weight on the WW site, because I’m trying to be honest here, I got some snappy reply of “we see you’ve had a weight gain this week.” Well, thank you Captain Obvious. Any more words of wisdom you want to share? The WW solution is to join a local meeting. No thanks. Been there. Done that. Meetings just aren’t my style as I have the attention span of a gnat. I just can’t sit there for 1/2 hour listening to people tell me that carrot sticks really satisfy their cravings for potato chips. Bullshit. Potato chips satisfy your craving for potato chips. Carrot sticks are depressing. Yes, I’m cranky today. However, I’m not going to throw in the towel. I’m going to be careful this week and try to stick to the plan. Now, I just have to throw away that chocolate bunny that’s lurking in the cabinet. The damned thing is just taunting me to eat it.
