Last week, probably on New Year’s Eve, I was showing a co-worker where the office keeps the scale and demonstrated how to use it. As I expected, I’d put on a few holiday pounds and decided to start again with the points-watching on the 5th. So I’ve been eating pointily for three days. Three days only. I get on the scale this morning and it shows 7 pounds less. This is just wrong. Even counting 2 pounds for the jeans I was wearing last week that’s still more than I ever lost in a week and it hasn’t been a week yet. I’m going to keep it up for another week and see if I need to do any more.
