Hello to all my BFC sisters!
Well, today is Saturday and it was WW weigh in day. With my sister being in North Carolina still (she's on her way home today...yay!) I have to tell ya, I really just wanted to blow off my WW meeting and weigh in today but I told myself "you are paying for this, so you're gonna go"! I honestly didn't think that I had much of a loss this week. I kept pretty honest to program and every day I got on the scale, it kept giving me the same number. Anyways, I hopped on this morning and it was the same number (again) however after a couple of bathroom breaks (TMI) I noticed it was a little lighter. Regardless, I planned on going and teetered with opting out of weighing in (you can take a no weigh in pass if you need to) but decided to bite the bullet & spin the wheel and see what it said. So to my surprise, I am down another 1.2# this week and I am 2# away from losing 10% of my body weight and 7 # away from hitting 25# with WW!!! New number is 194.2!!! I thought at most it would be about 1/2# but 1.2....I will take it!! So I am down 19# total now with WW since starting the program and a total of 24# from my highest weight last year in March. My jeans are fitting better, people are starting to notice and it feels great!!! I haven't seen this number in over 7 years!!! Progress is FINALLY being made and it is motivating me to keep on keepin on!!
Our topic today was celebrating your successes along your weight loss journey. Our WW leader Pam asked us what we are celebrating? I told her that for once in my life, I FINALLY have my head in the game!! I also told her how fun & exciting it has been to have people notice that I am losing weight. My goal for this week is to hit my 10% and lose that 2# and I would like to have hit my 25# mark by the end of the month. I know its lofty but as Pam said we need something to work toward and I am going to give it my best try. The great thing about setting goals is even if you don't hit it in the time frame you wanted to, you can reset your goal date and continue to work toward reaching it. The most important thing is to never forget your goal and what you are working toward!! I am living life....One bite at a time and enjoying the journey to a NEW ME this year!!!!!!
So....what are you celebrating along your weight loss journey? Would love to hear them!! Please post in the comments section and lets all cheer each other on to victory!!
