Just between you and me

ME:  I promised a Wednesday Weigh-In, so here I am.  158.8 lbs

YOU:  You're down, good for you!  What did you do the past week? 

ME:  I tracked all my Weight Watchers points and stayed WITHIN my points by eating lots of veggies, fruit, and lean protein.

YOU:  So, let me get this straight...  Eat well, lose weight.  Eat poorly, gain weight. *your eyebrow slightly raises*

ME:  *blush* Huh. Who knew?

I know... I have been a bad, bad blogger.

Life has kicked into high gear, and my weight certainly reflects it.

I haven't reported my weigh-ins on here in over a month, but I have faithfully stepped on the scale every Wednesday.  I have hit a bit of a plateau.  Although it isn't a typical plateau where I'm doing everything right and the scale isn't budging.  It's a plateau of not doing all the things I know I'm supposed to do.

Here are the numbers from over the past month:

May 15 - 162.2
May 22 - 158.6
May 29 - 160.2
June 5 - 162.6

Here are some of the excuses events that contributed to the rollercoaster:
- house hunting in our new city = dinner out every night for 5 nights
- preparing the sale of one of our current houses (painting, cleaning, etc.) = quick, not-always-healthy dinners on the go
- surprise birthday party for my father-in-law at our house = leftovers from party for days afterward
- evening seminars twice a week with snack food tables to pick at
- a general lack of exercise

This week I have re-committed myself to following Weight Watchers and tracking everything.  I have also started half-marathon training because, damn it, why not?

See you again on Wednesday - I promise!
