So I skipped my weight watchers meeting last Saturday morning due to being sick. I went to another meeting last night to make up for it. So it's been eleven days since my last weigh in. Normally I get weighed in the a.m. on a completely empty stomach. Last night I went before dinner time, but I had already eaten breakfast and lunch earlier and had several things to drink during the day. I thought maybe the scale might be a little off due to that but I didn't think it would make much of a difference. I was sick with a virus for the better part of last week and part of this week and my appetite was pretty non existent. I barely ate anything so I expected quite a dramatic weight loss from it. Plus it's been a week and a half since my last weigh in and I usually get weighed once a week. I was quite disappointed when I got on the scale last night and found out I only lost 1.4 pounds. That's not even a pound and a half. That is absolutel C-R-A-P. I practically starved myself all week and I lose one pound in eleven days. I am incredibly upset and disappointed in myself. My boyfriend is telling me to be happy with my weight loss and I should be thankful I didn't gain anything. Maybe he's right, but I'm still quite unhappy with my progress. One of my friends has been on weight watchers for six weeks now and has lost 20 pounds already. That means she is averaging three pounds a week. I am jealous. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. At this rate it will take me a year to lose these darn 42 pounds. It seems like I am going to be stuck this way forever. My online weight loss support group is telling me not to get discouraged. I am trying to listen to them but it's hard. I don't feel as optimistic about my weight loss as I once did. I just need a little extra encouragement right now. I am feeling a bit hopeless.
