I am quickly falling back into my old habits of giving up tracking fully at the weekend and letting the binge take over and I am not sure why. I am heading to Spain for a girls weekend with my sister in a week and a half, plus Christmas and my trip to Morocco is looming so I should be more motivated than ever - but it seems once Friday hits my motivation disappears. Last week I gained 1lb, but to be honest I had been expecting more. I usually gain during my TOTM and its usually more than 1lb. I should have been motivated on Friday to stick to the plan 100% but I found myself picking at the breakfast treats in the work canteen throughout the day. I went ahead and had my usual 'day off' on Saturday and had a fantastic day out with my love and failed to get myself back on track yesterday.

I had a really busy week last week in work and was home late most evenings, and instead of trying to stress myself out about getting a blog post out I just decided to skip the week blogging. I have not however missed a weigh in. After my first great loss of 4lbs, the following week I gained 1lb. I'm not sure why as I had tracked everything and had felt like I'd had a really good week. I had decided to not dwell too much on it, it may have been the big loss the week before balancing out and I decided to look at it as 3lb loss over 2 weeks instead of focusing on the gain.

First full week back to class done and I managed to lose 4lbs. I was really hoping for a big start but I wasn't sure how things would actually go on the scales. So I am delighted with my first week and this time it has just motivated me even more. I had said a few weeks ago I was going to prioritise my Thursday evenings and make sure I didn't miss my weigh ins, and of course didn't I go and sign up for a run this Thursday evening. I should still make it to my weigh in before the run but I just won't be able to stay to the class. The alternative to to find a class on Wednesday evening but there aren't really any that suit.

This week I bit the bullet and made it back to my weight watchers meeting last Thursday and faced the official weigh in. Somehow I found my way back to being 1 stone over my goal weight again which is not fantastic but it is what it is. I got access to esource and jumped straight in first thing on Friday morning and it has really helped.

Despite all my best intentions, it took all of 3 weeks for me to lose my way and so I didn't update last week. After my 2nd week, despite sticking to the plan the scales said STS and somehow I internally reacted badly and that weekend was a disaster. Then I was stressed and being hard on myself over the STS the just kept letting things slip and before I knew it I was back into the habits from the start of the summer. So I have realised that I can't do this alone, I need to go back to class. I always intended on going back but I just had a few things on and it wasn't possible for the few weeks.

Last week was my first full week back on plan all summer and I have to say it felt great. For the most part I didn't feel temptation and I was happy with all my planned meals. I had a treat on Saturday night and worked a few treats during the week into my daily points. My skin started to clear up a bit and I felt like I was sleeping better, and of course the scales responded and I was down 3.5lbs on Thursday.

Its been a long time since I post here, and its been about the same amount of time since I have been on plan. The summer seems to have just disappeared in the blink of an eye, but that did not stop me doing as much damage as possible. I weighed myself last Thursday in absence of going back to a meeting and I managed to gain 10 lbs over the summer, and was weighing in 1 stone over my goal weight. It could have been worst, but not surprising my clothes are all very tight on me. I'm not going to lie, I have had a great summer, but its time to get serious again.
