Hello to all my Skinny Sisters!
Well, had my official weigh in today @ WW and I am down another 1.8#, that makes a total of 15.2 lost w/ WW since Dec 1 and a total weight loss of 20.5# when I was at my heaviest last March, 2010. I am about 6# away from hitting my 10% weight loss.....I dont think I have ever hit my 10% with WW....ever...so that is pretty exciting stuff too! It feels so good to be wearing my jeans again that I havent worn in I dont know how many years,to see my clothes getting baggy, to not have as many ripples & bumps showing and to just enjoy feeling a little bit lighter. I put my winter coat on today and noticed that it is really starting to get big on me too. When I got on the scale this morning though, it said I was up 3# since yesterday!! I was like....seriously?! How can you possibly gain 3# overnight? I have been sooooo good, following everything to a tee and exercising too, and then it dawned on me. It seems that every time I exercise before I weigh in, I am always heavier the next day. I did 2 exercise tapes yesterday and I am wondering if my body is just hanging on to a little extra water weight from doing them. So I waited til 11am to weigh in and the scale came back down. So note to self...not gonna exercise on Fridays. I really need to update my stats too! I have really laxed on that.
I pulled out my bathing suits (all in black might I add....go figure!) and tried them on this morning. They look ok, I suppose.... but I am thinking another 10# and they will look much better. We have our cruise in 4 1/2 weeks and I dont know how realistic it is to lose that much in that short of a time frame but by golly, Im gonna give it my best shot! I will take anything I lose in that timeframe and be happy with it. Even though they are just numbers, and they certainly dont define me by any means, it is so fun to see them going down instead of up which is what was happening all of last year. I fell like something has "clicked" for me this time and as I have said in previous posts, I REALLY KNOW that this time I am going to do it!!! I have never been more motivated and I truly believe that come Sept. you aren't gonna believe what you will see! I wanna look younger, dress in cute stylish clothing that doesnt scream grandma or have a "W" after the number , and I wanna look HOT for once in my life!!! I am starting to envision myself looking this way and I have never been able to do that before.
So thats my update for you all. I hope you are all doing great! Please be sure to post how your week has gone. Have a wonderful weekend and please keep in touch & be sure to say hello if you stop by to visit!
Love & belief!
