Tomorrow I weigh in for the first time on Weight Watchers.  I've been following the plan and tracking for the last 10 days but this is my first weigh in since I found a partner to go with me on Wednesdays.

Despite the nagging doubts I have I know that I have done everything I'm supposed to in the plan.  I ate my daily points, used weekly points where needed.  I worked out 4 days.  Everything, including my pants, point to the fact that I have lost something.

And yet there is anxiety in facing the scale knowing I gave it my all.  What if I don't lose anything?  What if I lose a little bit but I get frustrated because I wished it was more?  What if... What if...  It is those what ifs that used to keep me from following the plan to the fullest.  If I sabotaged myself  then I was never surprised by the result.  Tomorrow, I don't know what the result will be because I refused to be sabotaged this time.

But I am hopeful, but more than that I am determined.  To that end I have made myself 2.5 promises about tomorrow.

1.  I will continue to follow the plan next week no matter what the outcome.
2.  I will celebrate that I have accomplished a solid week on plan regardless of the number on the scale.
2b. Celebrate does not mean eat food.

I can keep those promises.

I'll keep you posted.  I imagine it will be an interesting experience tomorrow.  I'm hoping for a good number its true, but I am promising myself to keep on with the fight no matter what.

When the pants feel better that is a GREAT sign! I am cheering for you, Liz! Don't feel frustrated, feel empowered!!

I can't wait to hear the outcome. I'm sure it will be great. No matter what the outcome of this week, though, just remember a couple of things:

1) Losing nothing is still better than gaining something.

2) Nothing tastes as good as losing weight feels.

You are awesome. You can do this. Just take it one day at a time.
