Well, folks... I maintained.
After a great week of pretty amazing eating, including one day of 100% Power Foods, and steady exercising, I maintained my current weight of 154.4.
And I'm actually NOT upset about it!
I love this weight. I feel thin and beautiful and... healthy.
It's not my ultimate goal weight (135 is!!!), but I'm pretty content to stay around this weight for a bit.
If the losses start to slow down, that's actually OKAY with me.
... Now, that being said, I'm not going to jump up and down with joy over maintaining after trying to lose.
There are a few possibilities for the reasons I maintained this week:
1) Water weight. I felt kind of bloated this weekend, after a salty day on Friday (triscuits, pickles... falafel...)
2) My body is adjusting to my new exercise routine. Last week was the first full week of my new college exercise plan, which basically is less time consuming, but higher intensity workouts, usually in the morning before work.
3) I'm so close to my goal weight now that the losses will be slowing down. Many have told me that this would probably happen, and I didn't want to accept it, but this just may be the case.
4) I didn't eat enough. I'm not sure if this is actually possible as a reason to not lose weight, but some WW members have told me that it is. I ended the week with some WP remaining, which never happens for me. And on Tuesday, I went to bed with a couple of DPs left.
My plan is to just keep on going, stay OP, and keep up with my new exercise routine. Oh, and to hope for a good loss next time! :-)
P.S. This is a picture of me in jeans that fit! I'm loving wearing fitted jeans. (size 14)
