Should I Skip Weigh-In?

I seriously considered skipping weigh-in. I have been in eating mode since last Friday and I did not want to be all "well that sucks for me....bring on the food!" I have yet to do that but it has been a weird week. No telling what I will do next.

I did weigh-in. 177.2 that is a 2.4 pound gain. Sucky, sucky. Oh well. I don't really care what the scale says (too much anyway). I think I am going to go ahead and call my goal weight 175 and goal size 10. That is the weight I have pretty much been maintaining since Thanksgiving and I am okay with it. It is healthy for me. I feel good at this weight and size. Really good actually.

Confession - last night was not super healthy. Nope. No chicken and salad for me. This week was the 100th day of school. I always have my class make a snack with 10 ingredients. 4 of them are varieties of cereal. I was telling my husband how this year I gave them Cookie Crisps. He got so excited so I decided to bring home the leftovers so he could eat it. I normally do not do this but he is like a kid and it is fun to watch his face get excited.

So for dinner he ate toast and 2 bowls of Cookie Crisp. I ate 3 bowls of cereal. 3 different kinds - Pops, Honey Nut Cheerios and Fruit Loops. Oink, oink. Over my calories and minimal nutritional value. Boy was it good too. Like I said, this week is sooooo out of character for me. And tonight is happy hour with more delicious foods.

I did however go to my turbo kickboxing class. I just cannot stay away. I am now leaving for another body attack class (4th one since Monday **body is tired**).

I hope you all have a great weekend and better luck on the scale!

Cookie Crisp....yummy! Now I have a craving for them :) Everyone has an off week. It's when our week turns into a month and so on. I'm sure this week will go better for you! Oh, you look great in your pics! Very motivating!

I used to beg my mom for Cookie Crisp. She always said no, so when I was out on my own....Cookie Crisp and Froot Loops here I come. I try to let me kids have a "junky" cereal at least once a month, so they don't hook an IV sugar drip to their arm when they move out :)

Great job on reaching goal. that is the classic example you always read about but never see.
"I will know it when I get there."
Well, you are the first person who knew it when they got there, that I have seen.
So...this shouldn't be a fizzle.
Don't let anyone screw you out of your celebration.
Go and buy yourself a reward.

Are you close to your "monthly gift"? I know I always look for lots of carbs around the week "Aunt Flow" is due.
I know you'll get back on track - look how far you've come. You KNOW what to do - just do it! :-)

ive skipped weigh ins several times and ultimately regretted it.

good decisions on the goal weight i think that sounds sensible.

sometimes its ok to take a time out. especially when you work out as hard as you.

im trying zumba wish me luck!

I am a teacher too and I also fell victim to 100 day snacks. For the students who can successfully count to 100 they receive one wafer cookie and two mini doughnuts. Guess who got a hold of the mini doughnuts? Your truly.

That's good that you decided to weigh in. I never use my no weigh in pass at weight watcher. I always want to know the damage so I know how hard I have to work. You are an inspiration.
