Fallen off the wagon

I haven't been to a WW meeting in 3 weeks, and I'm not ashamed of this I'm just stating facts.
My current Saturday habit is to sleep in, with my current work schedule I'm absolutely exhausted on Fridays and the last thing in the world I want to do is get up to go to weigh in. 

I stepped on my home scale this morning and weighed 186.8 so not back where I started in the biggest loser challenge but certainly up. I'm not giving up on the challenge. I going forward not back.

My eating behaviour over the past 3 weeks has not been fantastic. For 2 weeks in a row I bought lunch and a latte every single work day. Not to mention tracking hasn't happened at all. I'm very much aware that these type of behaviours do not lead to weight loss. 

Question is what do I do now....well the simple answer is get back on the wagon. I am however debating going to a meeting anytime soon. I've been on WW for years and while had some success I've never even come close to goal. This is not WW's fault but more my stubbornness. This week I will still follow the ww program and we'll see about a meeting towards the end of the week. I'd  have to probably rejoin anyway after missing so many weeks. 

Now that I've got my new schedule relatively sorted I can once again return to the gym. I've had to juggle days around as I now work one day a week super far from my normal work place. The one day used to be a gym day but it takes a long time to get home from this location so I've moved that day.

I've realized joining a 2nd gym is not an option unless I really try to use the first gym.

So here's to picking yourself up and dusting yourself up.

Have you thought about trying another diet for 2 weeks to give yourself a kick start? I am a life timer with WW and sometimes you need to do something different or some tweaking to give you a jump start. Could you try south beach diet for two weeks or some of the other successful programs. As I have gotten older I have found that I need to limit my carb and sugar intake. Don't give up. I once weighed about 186/188 and now I am 135. It took me three times with WW to make it. I have kept the weight off since early 1993. Sometimes the pounds have started to creep back on as I got lax and too comfortable. I went back to basics and watched portions etc. I also exercise every day, mostly walking, and that is the key. I have a question re your latte consumption. I also enjoy a latte and use the skim milk in my latte as my daily allowable milk servings. Are you doing that? One last piece of advice. Never, ever give up on your goal of losing weight. One bad day or week should not destroy your vision of where you want to go and be.

You could do WW online. You seem to do pretty good working on yourself maybe that's an option. You'd still be able to count and track but wouldn't be tied down to a meeting. Worked for me! :)
