I've still come out ahead 6.2 pounds in the last five weeks, and I am thankful for sure, but I am actually concerned about my drastic ups and downs. I know my body carries water-weight and stress-weight, and all other kinds of weight, but isn't that dramatic to lose 5.2 pounds in one week? I can't help thinking that I will only gain again next week.
I think what it comes down to is all this information I'm given about how Weight Watchers is planned for a 1- to 2-pound loss each week. Also, I've been reading article after article about how slow weight loss is the weight loss that sticks. So am I losing too much in too short of time? I've lost 16 pounds so far over an 8-week period, but 5.2 of those was in one week. The only thing that has any drastic change in my weekly routine are my bike rides. My other exercise and my eating has stayed generally the same.
Anyway, yes, I am excited I lost 5.2 pounds. That's a big number. I haven't been this weight in years, so I'm holding on to my body feeling this way, even if it does only last one week.
