One week of smart pointing and the scales rewarded me with...(drum roll please)...a 3lb loss.
Which is good. It's fine. It's actually probably a little bit better than good. But I would be lying if I said that I was pleased this morning. If anything, I was a little deflated. This past week has felt like really hard going, and for hard going I wanted better than good. Even if it was just an inflated first week loss to bolster me up for the coming weeks.
I ended the week having had all my dailies and most of my weekly points - so pretty much where I was supposed to be. But, as I have already said in my previous posts, I felt like I was on a diet ALL WEEK.
I'm going to persevere, because at the moment, I don't know what the alternative is. And, there was a lot of positive feedback from members of the WW message boards who have been following the plan for a while, so I may just need a bit longer to get my head firmly out of Pro Points and into the Smart Points game. I'll do a further update after the first month and see where I am then (for sake of comparison - the last time I started Pro Points, this blog records that I lost a stone in the first four weeks - it will be interesting to see how the results compare).
A note on Dukan
As I mentioned in an earlier post, D has been doing the Dukan Attack phase this week - which has basically meant eating nothing but lean meat, fish, low fat dairy and a couple of eggs a day. He reports that he has not been hungry, just intensely bored. He was well rewarded, though, having lost a whopping 9lbs in 7 days - a big boost was exactly what he needed to keep him going. It will be interesting to see what happens as he comes out of Attack and on to Cruise phase (where he can introduce vegetables). I have everything crossed that he continues to see those good results.
