I’ve been working on-and-off all day on the third part of my Setting Goals & Finding Support series, but I’m not done with it. As I was writing, I kept thinking about the importance of accountability, and decided to go to a meeting to weigh in tomorrow (Saturday). I usually go to a Monday meeting, but since both Christmas and New Years Day are Mondays, the meetings are cancelled. I had been thinking that I could just weigh myself at home, and that would have to do. But 3 weeks is a long time to go without an official weigh-in, especially when I’m doing a 4-week goal-setting challenge. So I’ll go to the Saturday morning meeting (8am!) this week and next week, and that way I’ll have some real, official numbers to work with (from the guy who keeps saying that it’s not about the numbers).
I’m not sure what kind of loss I can expect after just 5 days, but I’ve had a pretty good week so far. I’ve averaged 41SPs a day so far this week, which is down a couple of points over previous weeks. And I’ve been walking every morning and been active throughout the day, so hopefully it’ll all pay off with a loss. If I’m honest, I’d like to lose at least a kilo, but I’ll happy enough with any loss. After working out the number of SmartPoints in some of the dishes my wife is preparing for Christmas lunch (not to mention the fact that it’s the one day of the year when I bust out the DEEP FRYER!), I don’t think I’m going to see a loss on that Saturday weigh-in after Christmas. Good thing it only comes around once a year.
Ok, it’s bed-time for me (9:30 on a Friday night, because I’m living like a WILD man, y’all!), since I’m getting up at 5am to get in a walk before that meeting. I hope you had a great day and that you’re feeling good!
