Improvement, Not Perfection

"Improvement, not perfection" is going to have to be how I look at things. In the past I've always had a problem with this. If I couldn't do something perfectly, then I wasn't going to do it at all. It is a huge step out of my comfort zone to be able to admit that not everything has to be perfect.

Anyhow, I did pretty well with following my WW points each day. Eric, Kari and the kids were here for the weekend, so we were definitely out of our routine. I decided that rather than trying to count points (and in turn make myself a complete nutcase) this weekend, that I would instead practice moderation. Looking back on it, while I know I wasn't perfect, I think I was pretty good. I made some good choices (like I didn't touch the chips, I drank lots of water, only had 1 diet soda) and didn't make the get-together all about the food. A huge step . . . we had guests over and I actually got in the pool with Andy. In my bathing suit. I felt completely horrid, but pretended that all was good.

I'm going to a WW meeting tomorrow, instead of today. First of all, I want to experience a different leader. Secondly, Brian is off today and we are lazing around the house this morning recovering from the weekend.

To those of you who are right along side me trying, what has gone right for you this past week?

  1. I've been keeping to my points. I can't stop weighing myself and it doesn't seem to be going down. I know I need to be patient. I did try a yummy meatloaf recipe and found some yummy frozen yogurt sandwiches for 4 points each. Oh, and I made your cupcake recipe this week. I'll let you know if I'm losing on Friday.
