2 pounds in 2 weeks... a note on calendar goals

Today I'm having one of those WW highs... I feel like telling the world that I'm on WW, and praising the plan.

I've been back on for 2 weeks and am down 2.2 pounds so far.

That may not sound like a lot, but for me that's the pace that I like. And, to be honest, the first two weeks back were not perfectly OP weeks for me. There were times that I didn't track (I did a lot of what I call assumptive tracking... "I'm just going to assume that the rest of my dailies are now gone...) and I didn't pay too much attention to the GHGs.

So to follow the plan not 100% and to still lose at least a pound a week is amazing.

I'm going to try really hard to follow the plan as written for week three and see how the scale responds.

Though I'm pretty content to keep on losing about a pound a week. That's how I lost 50 pounds in 2010... (seems like such a long time ago, doesn't it?)

I am trying so very hard to not set any calendar goals for my weight loss this time around (the LAST time,  dammit).

My brain automatically goes to "Oooh, two pounds in two weeks? I guess that means that I'll be done losing weight in about a year!" but that is just not going to be true.

I know that it becomes harder to lose weight as I get smaller. And I'm prepared for this to take as long as... two years. LOL Oh well, baby steps!

I totally remember the feeling of trying to plan out when I'd be "done" loosing weight. Never worked though, I'm glad you realize that now! I think we all put unrealistic expectations on ourselves as women. I'm sure I'll be doing the same thing once I figure out how to loose this darn baby weight haha!

Congrats on your weight loss! Keep up the hard work. One thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar (www.fullbar.com). Not only do their products help you lose weight, they also help you maintain your weight loss.
