DietBlog: I walked into the meeting tonight expecting a modest loss. I’ve been good all week: I faithfully tracked my Points; I got lots of exercise; I drank lots of water. I even went to the grocery store and stocked up on healthy snacks to keep at work so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat junk food. And of course, there was that whole hypnotism thing, not that I seriously expected it to make much difference. I mean, she’d told me that my metabolism might rise a bit, and that I might sweat a bit more when I exercised – (My response? “That would not be possible.”) – but I didn’t really expect it to make much of a difference. So I climbed on the scales… and HOLY CRAP, EIGHTY-SIX KILOS. I swear to God that they read eighty-nine last week. A three kilo drop? That’s like six-and-a-half pounds! There’s just no way. I didn’t have a baby or anything. So I tried to rationalize it: Maybe I read the scales wrong last week. Maybe it was all water weight. Maybe the scales were miscalibrated. Maybe I was wearing really heavy shoes or something. But all along, a little voice inside my head was whispering, “But maybe… it was MAGIC!” Whatever the reason, I am back on track, baby! That’s officially 14.1 kilos lost in total, and if all goes well I’ll be down to fifteen next week. (And I get to buy my new Crocs!)

  1. Nicely done, Kris! I’m definitely using your experience as justification if/when I ever go get hypnotized to stop my damn night time tooth grinding. Bruxism be damned!

  2. way to go! And this isn’t to reduce your joy and accomplishment, but my first week on WW I lost 7! WHooohooo! it was totally a combo of horrible eating before plus water weight, but I’ll take it!

  3. I’m thinking that’s what mine was, Kristine. I expect it’ll slow down this week… (Though a kilo would ROCK.)

  4. this rules so much! hypnotism is magic! i believe in m a g i c !

  5. The scales never lie.

  6. I’m totally sure you’ll keep going though- it’s shocking what restarting does to your body sometimes. (mine needs a slacker 2 or 3 weeks and a wakeup call to really get over the plateaus) But there definetly weeks I have to tell myself- “Non-scale victories count.” really.
