Hey guys! I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. All of my grad school assignments are done. I just have 1 week left of student teaching (until January) and 2 presentations to go. All the work for the presentations is done so I just have to present them no big deal really.

Weight wise I am back down to 173.8 as of this morning. Last week I didn't track or count at all. I ate out and had treats with no regard for points. Its kind of crazy. I am glad to be back down to my lower weight but it bothers me that when I try to follow the plan I don't lose then I have a week like the last one a drop 2lbs. It just doesn't make a lot of sense. It really makes me wonder about this program. It also makes me wonder if I am not getting enough points for my activity level during the day.

Goals for this week include:

relaxing (destressing)
taking my vitamins daily
tracking every day

I've had weeks like that too, where I do really well and then don't lose much, and then eat really poorly and lose a lot. The thing is that I think our bodies don't exactly work on the same one week schedule as our points do. So even though you might be very fastidious with points one week, and not see a loss -- your body is still kinda processing stuff that happened BEFORE that week too...and likewise when you eat 'off plan' and drop a lot, it's probably because you had a good week the week before. If you eat on track CONSISTENTLY for a few weeks, and still aren't losing, then yeah, maybe you aren't getting enough points, but if you flip back and forth from one week to the next, it's more likely that your body is just a bit slower in how it's processing everything.

That's a really good point Andrea. It is really hard to think outside the week to week mindset. Thank you.

The scales play weird mind games with you- they are noted for it...

I love that feeling when essays/projects and letters are out of the way although you do kind of wonder what to do next.
