As you may recall, I was hoping for a 4lb loss this week – my second official week of being a Weight Watcher! Admittedly, our trip to the cider mill on Saturday put a bit of a dent in my goodness, which sent me on a bit of a spiral for a couple of days.
I must have done at least a few things right though, because I’m completely fine with the 2.8 pounds I lost this week. I think the biggest help I can give myself at this point is to stop comparing this experience to last year. The situation is completely different, and I have to realize that.
If I haven’t admitted it yet (at least in the public venue on my blog) I usually allow myself to splurge on Tuesday nights after I weigh in. Then I get right back on track Wednesday morning. Well, tonight’s binge-fest wasn’t all it was cracked up to be seeing as how I had 2 hours of dental work this afternoon! Yup, I went in for a crown, and told them that since my cleaning, the other tooth we were concerned about had also begun feeling more sensitive. So…what was intended to be one crown, became two!
I had a total of 6 shots of Novocaine, which meant my entire jaw was numb. It made talking ridiculous (Garth loved it!) and eating nearly impossible for about 4-5 hours. Happily, I have most of the feeling back now and plan to start the morning out right tomorrow!
