Back to Basics

So I realized that I haven't recorded my weight since early March and I haven't been consistently counting points for just as long, if not longer. So, I recommitted to myself yesterday to start tracking my points and journaling on WW eTools every day. I used to try to fill in what I had eaten in the past on the days I could remember. This time, I decided to start fresh and just move forward. It is eye opening to say the least. I thought I was eating a little more than my points allowance, but in the past two days it has been like 10 points over each day. I know I have flex points, but still, I want to get back to a structure I can stick with. I didn't weigh-in today because I had a phone interview at the same time as the meeting (yeah! :) but I'm going next week and I think I'm going to stay for the meeting. It isn't the same as my old ones in Maryland, but I think I need the structure. All of this isn't motivated because of an uptick on the scale. (I do weigh myself periodically, I just don't record it.) It is more a desire to feel in control again. Does that make sense?

Perfect sense. I'm going to log on right now and fill mine in before I forget. Thanks!
