End of week 3: gains and growth

 So, I lost 10 pounds at some point, but I've gained most of that back. I struggled this past week with sticking to my plan. I'm still learning what I can and can't fit into my daily points budget that is the core of the weight watchers plan. I tend to starve myself all day in order to be able to eat a rich meal for dinner and honestly I don't think this is a sustainable plan. It worked for maybe a week and a half and then I started eating so many wrong things at all the wrong times. My "willpower" was depleted by starving myself so much. So, I'm going to make it a point to eat more for breakfast and lunch, and less at dinner, and see how that goes. I predict better results.

In the realm of growth, I did my yoga and drank my water, and stuck to my plan 4 out of 7 days. When I type it all out like that I see this past week was way more successful than I realized at first. I tend to demand perfection from myself and then when I don't achieve perfection (because no human can) I flagellate myself. I'm trying to stop doing that. I see that I actually made a great deal of progress towards my goal of being healthy, even though the scale didn't go down like I wished. I keep reading diet books filled with advice and the good ones all say that you should expect some ups as well as downs. It's all part of the process. 

I intend to continue doing what I've been doing, along with the adjustment to the sizes of my meals. I predict better numbers on the scale at the end of this week. But if I don't, I'll be ok with that.
