Just When I Think I Know My Body......

Last week I had a very unexpected 6.8 pound weight loss that put me at my lowest weight yet, and that much closer to goal. But I must have been carrying some water weight, right? I have no idea. I knew I had a good week, but I did not expect that at all. I always weigh before I head out the door to my meeting. My home scale always says the same thing as the WW scale. Even though I didn't quite get it, I was very happy to be at 165.

I go to my WW meetings on Fridays. I usually weigh at home the Tuesday after my meeting to see how things are going. When I got on the scale at home on Tuesday, it said 169! It just doesn't make sense! I feel like salt might be the culprit, but is it really making me go up and down THAT much??? I know I will leave my meeting on Friday with a sad face.

In an effort to get into a "Happy Place", I pretended my cute socks were puppets. Identical Twins. These cute little twins had a happy conversation and danced. I should have taped it. Not sure anyone would believe how long these twins talked to each other and danced. I called them Bobbi and Betty. I'm in a better mood. (I scare myself sometimes)

Then I had my second breakfast in a row of something besides Egg Whites.
Peach Greek Yogurt.
I thought ALL of the flavors were 4 PPV, but this one is only......

Yes, I sliced a 1/2 banana on top!

After my Jog/walk.......
WW Chocolate Smoothie
2 T. PB2 (peanut butter powder)
1/2 frozen banana

I was trying to use up the chicken in the fridge, so I put these little guys together. Chicken on the bottom, 1/2 cherry tomato, pearl mozzarella balls, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper.

Followed by a bag of this.......

Most of it didn't pop, for some unknown reason, so I called it....

Later in the afternoon, a handful of nuts.
(They are salted. Maybe I push those to the back of the pantry.)

I LOVED my soup on Wednesday night! The chicken sausage made a huge difference in the flavor! Next time I will cut each slice of sausage into 1/4's. I want to taste it in EVERY bite! I decided to cook up some quinoa and add to it for Thursdays dinner. Not too shabby. I finished it off with a tablespoon of shredded Parmesan.

Soup 4 PPV
Quinoa 2 PPV
Parmesan 1 PPV

Total = 7 PPV

Banana Chocolate Chip VitaTop!
I thought these were ALL 4 PPV, but this one is only 2 PPV! I checked it twice just to make sure. NINE grams of fiber!


Refresh...I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

The food I ate today and it's PPV.

Breakfast = 3
Snack = 3
Lunch = 6
Snack = 5
Dinner = 9

Total = 26

Activity Points Earned Today = 6
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 18
How many glasses of water I drank today = 12

Weigh in is going to suck on Friday morning. I don't know what else to say about it. I am going to look back at everything I ate the week of the 6.8 pound loss the week before, and retrace my steps.

Too many things planned this weekend to be bummed.

"love the life you live, live the life you love"


  1. Isnt it wonderful how our weight can go up and down for no reason??!! My biggest gain was the week that I ran my half marathon...and I did not eat my points from that run (in fact, I had stomach issues for a couple of days and had to eat very lightly) It will drive you crazy! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Drives me crazy! I really wish it made sense. Ah.......onward. :)
