A big little deal

I have become frenemies with .2.

Last week I lost .2. This week, I gained it back.

I can’t help but be disappointed. I’m very close to my next milestone of 75 pounds, but I can’t seem to get to it.

I know .2 isn’t that big of a deal. I tried, with no luck, to research a common item that weighs .2 pounds. But when I’m so close to that next goal? It hurts a little.

I think I’ve been a little off my game lately, food-wise. I have been super busy (and a little lazy) and haven’t been to the grocery store so I’ve been eating out a lot. And even though I’ve been making good choices when I go out to eat, it’s still not as controlled as I could be from home.

Hopefully that milestone is just around the corner. Fingers crossed. I know what I need to do.

Oh, and I’ve decided a longer-term goal for me is to lose 100 pounds by my first Weight Watcher anniversary, which is Jan. 26, 2011. Think I can do it?

You are probably just experiencing a plateau. I've been amazed that you haven't had one before now. You are doing great! Keep on Truckin'!

Heck yes, you can do it. This happens, and you're doing awesome. But I know that .2 must be frustrating!

You can definitely do it! I have been struggling with the same 5 five pounds for the past few months, so I definitely feel your pain. Sometimes you need the setbacks to remind you how hard you need to work to obtain your goal and to remind you that your goal is worth it!! Good luck :)

I agree that it is the eating out. You really don't know what is added to each item (unless you make it yourself.)I think you get way to much salt and sugar eating out....thus .2!! It will leave, just you wait and see!!

Yes, you can reach 100 pounds! GREAT goal, especially through the holidays - it'll force you to focus on everything else BUT the food - which is a very healthy exercise during the holidays - drink lots of H2O!! WE need a big celebration when you hit 100 pounds!
