Weight Watchers tells you not to have unrealistic expectations about your weight-loss goal, because sometimes there are periods of stasis and also periods of reversal. So it was with me - weighing in this week I've gone backwards, gaining four tenths of a pound.
So I felt discouraged, and on my way out the door for my morning walk, I had to talk myself into going the full length. I was cold, it was wet, and what the heck good was it, anyway?
I'm glad I shook off the feeling and continued on. Because if I hadn't, I would have missed this view of the setting, lop-sided moon, over the mist-covered mountain.
Here on the way back up the hill 15 minutes later, the mists are clearing away and the moon has disappeared.
Weight Watchers tells you to re-examine your eating habits if you experience a gain. Are you tracking accurately? Did you do something differently this week? Did you slip? Do you need to shift your exercise into a higher gear? I've got some thinking to do.
How's your week starting?
