I’m getting a little frustrated with gaining and losing the same 2 pounds over the last 5 months. I’ve been following Weight Watchers points plus program and attending meetings since November 2012.
My weight gain this week brings my total lost down to 23 pounds.
As you can see in the chart below (and you know from reading this blog) I’ve been keeping up my fitness level, but it’s lead to gains, not loss in weight.
To say I’m frustrated is an understatement.
Aside from not losing weight this week, my Weight Watchers meeting was a bit frustrating for me on Tuesday. I’d brought my B.A.A. 5K medal with me, because I wanted to talk about it as a non-scale victory, but I was never given a chance to bring it up.
Instead, the leader harped on “what are you going to do TONIGHT to be more mindful about your eating”. The night of the meeting, I was having dinner at a Boston Women Communicators meeting. Since I’m President of that group, I welcome everyone to the meeting. So, after selecting lots of veggies on my dinner plate, the most “mindful” eating I have is to ask a table mate to keep my dinner from being cleared away while I’m speaking.
I know from being employed by Weight Watchers as a meeting Leader in the past that each meeting does have a set topic, but Leaders should also be able to respond to whatever weight loss issues are brought up in the meeting room. I’m thinking of going to try out a different meeting with a different Leader. I don’t know what else to change.
Friends and readers who follow Weight Watchers, do you have any suggestions for me about how you keep motivated while plateauing?
I have been to my doctor to have my thyroid levels checked, but don’t have the results from that yet.
