Weekly Weigh-In, 25 lbs Barrier Edition

293.1, down 2.0 lbs from last week, total lost 25.9 lbs, average 0.8 lbs/week.

My goal has been to stay 10 or more points under my daily allocation, as it seems to be the only way I don't re-gain weight. I've gotten to the point in dietary changes where that's fairly easy, so my next step will be to try to get to 32 points/day, which is what my eventual "ideal weight" allocation will be. But as laurie_robey can tell you, 32 points is a very small amount. Just breathing is like 10 points. :P I'm pretty sure that even looking at a cheeseburger is 5.

I wonder, tho; when you start Weight Watchers, they're all "Eat! Use your points! Even if you use all your daily points and all your weekly points, you'll lose weight!" In my case, at least, this is categorically untrue. I wonder how many other people have been lost and frustrated because it wasn't true for them, either. When you've got a metabolism like mine losing weight is hard enough, without that kind of slap in the face.

My gut reaction on the "EAT ALL THE POINTS" advice is "well... they want to stay in business..."

this balances out with a common sense that if nobody lost weight following their advice, people wouldn't use their service.

I'd think "sustained and observable benefits" would be the most reliable way for them to stay in business. :) But weight loss is a weird industry, with huge spikes in January that fall off within a few months, because in our culture it's such a neurosis-laden topic.

I think what's more likely is just that "one size fits all" is no more true of weight loss than it is of anything else, and as I seem to do with everything, I fall into the Weird Outlier Category.

if you didn't fall into that category, you wouldn't be such an interesting friend.

D'Aww! ^.^'

There are times when an off-the-rack life would be a relaxing change, tho. ;)
