Tuesday Totals

31 Jan

For a quick catch up, I weighed in last Wednesday at 156.8, down 1.5 pounds from the week before.  I’ve been in this little waffling pattern for the past five weeks where I gain a little then lose a little and back and forth, so I kind of hope I can break through soon.  I wouldn’t call it a plateau because honestly I haven’t been doing as well as I could.  I need to lay the smack down on my points use to see progress!  I did stay within my points allowance this week (for the first time in a long while), but I’m not feeling super hopeful about the scale tomorrow morning based on my weight the past few days.
