Weigh In (11/7)

So, I know you're all dying to know how my first weigh in post-weight loss break went...

I lost 2.6 pounds!! I was fully prepared for a 5-pound gain, so I was pretty excited to have a loss on the scale. Of course, this made me realize that all these habits I've been working on, and changes I've been making are actually taking root--they're sticking.

In the past, if I wasn't doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing, i.e. tracking, counting calories/points, staying on top of things, then I was gaining. No ifs, ands, or buts... I don't think I've ever managed to lose weight all on my own, in the history of ever.

This gives me so much hope, and makes me feel so much more confident in what I'm doing. Losing weight this slowly, it can mess with you... am I doing what's best for me, am I going about this the right way, do I need to let go of Weight Watchers... but then I take a break and live and eat with no rules whatsoever, and I did just fine.

I definitely still want... crave... the structure of Weight Watchers, so I'm not going to quit doing that any time soon (if ever!), but now the idea of zero structure, of living and eating like a "normal person"... it's no longer something to be feared.

And I really, really, really like the sound of that.
