I'm really struggling with my weight loss.  One week I'm up, then down, then up, then down....  the weird thing is it's the same amount from week to week.  One week I was down 1.6, the next I was up 1.6, then down .8, then up .8.  Isn't it weird that it is exactly the same amount?

I'm really making sure I'm tracking and definitely am still measuring, but I've hit a plateau and am not real sure what to do about it.  I have started some walking since the weather is getting  nicer and am hoping that helps out.  Any advice?  How does everyone else get past a plateau?

I am beginning to learn how to order when out though.  Today, I went to the grocery store and on the way back wanted to grab something to eat.  That's not an easy tasks anymore.  I know exactly what to get at Wendy's, KFC and Subway.  We have no Wendy's in our town and KFC and Subway meant heading towards the other end of town.  I opted to stop at a convenience store, Rutter's. 

Before Weight Watchers, this was a very easy choice.  Normally I grabbed a hot dog, bag of chips and a mini-funnel cake.  Today, I had to be good.  I opted for turkey and swiss on a sandwich thin with mustard, lettuce and pickle.  I sided it with a banana and then decided to treat myself to a frozen coke (slurpee, icee or whatever they call it there).  But as with every other convenience store I walk into the frozen drinks are defrosting and such - I mean IT NEVER FAILS.  So I had to get a Coke Zero instead.

I find it funny that I'm now eating something I never would of ordered before!


  1. Well, I have been stalled forever mainly because I have not been tracking or any of I may not be the best one to give advice right now, but here is my take. Your body could be happy where it is. Either that or you need to switch up exercise and do something different. Our bodies get used to our "norm". I read once that mailmen who walked the same route every single day stopped losing weight even though they were doing tons of walking, but their bodies became acclimated to the same routine each day. Switch things up and see what happens; either your body has maybe decided you are at goal...what is your goal? You are a size 8 now and that is pretty small, or a switch in routine will get the scale moving again!
