A New Day....a New DECADE!!!!!

Hello to all!!

Well, today was weigh in day and I am posting a picture of what my scale said prior to my weigh in at Weight Watchers this morning. Needless to say, I was doing the happy dance because I have been waiting to see this number for MONTHS!!! :) I havent seen the 170s in about 18 years!!!! THIS IS A DAY TO CELEBRATE MY FRIENDS!! Margaritas are on me tonite!!!

The sad part is, when I weighed in at Weight Watchers this morning, their scale said 180.8. Arrghhh!! Those darned clothes!!! I tell you, if I could weigh in naked there I would!! Lol....well, not really. That wouldn't be a pretty sight at all!! Anyways, I know the truth and the truth is, I have entered a NEW DECADE ....the long awaited 170's!!!! Yiiiippppppeeeeeeee!!!!! ITs a GREAT DAY!!!!

I think what made the difference for me has been exercising. I walked 2 miles 3x this week and rode the stationary bike for 35 minutes one night. My food intake has been good for the most part and I feel so focused on my goal which certainly adds to the equation because you get out what you put in. I am going to do a repeat of this week again and see what happens at next Saturdays weigh in. I know their scale is gonna be "officially" in the 170s next Sat!  The best part is, I am getting close to achieving my Sept. goal of 5# lost. I need to see 178.8 on the scale to hit it, and that's only 2# away. I know I can & will make it happen!

I bought a new pair of black jeans tonight at Kohl's. They are Lee's slimming brand and they are straight leg which is what I love. I really don't like the flares unless I am wearing something with a heel. For some reason, they are cut really small because I had to buy a 16 and they are still a bit snug. But we all know that every pair is cut differently and that nobody but us sees the number on the tag... and that can be cut off! I believe in buying a pair of pants in a size that will be flattering and not make you look like you are stuffed in a sausage casing ,which we all know  is never a good look. They are gonna look fantastic when I have another 10# off...just sayin. I think they make me look pretty darned good! (butt & gut look pretty skinny in em!) I will post a picture of myself in them when I hit 169....that's a promise!

Well, I hope you are all having a great weekend! I feel like I got nothing accomplished today. All I did was run, run, run all day and I am beat! The weekends just go by way too fast!

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for listening & sharing my excitement.


  1. Good for you Sherri! I hope to be in the 170's soon myself. I just want to get there even if it is 179.5 so good for you. I am proud of you for getting there. Continued success. Hugs from me to you!

  2. Great job!! Wahoo!! And it is so nice to get new jeans and be happy and feel pretty in them! Way to go!

  3. Sherri - I am so happy for you!! You have been working so hard and it is worth it..
    Keep it up and can't wait to see you in those new jeans :-)

  4. How amazing Sherri!!! I am so happy for you!!! Your hard work is paying off big time!!! :) :) :)

  5. I think you are doing awesome! The excitement you feel for breaking that barrier is really fun to see. How many days until your birthday? Wasn't that your goal date? You made it early:)
    I haven't had straight leg jeans in years, maybe it is time for me to do get some too. I did wear some shorter jeans tucked into my Uggs last year. I thought I was styling:) I can't believe I am excited for winter just to wear those Uggs again. I have NEVER in 54 years, worn anything so comfortable!
    So now you hit the 170's, you can do anything!!!
    Exercise is really good for you and it is obviously making you feel better!

  6. Sherri, I know what a HUGE deal it is to get down into the next ten set!! It is just so motivating to reach that goal! I think the exercise you did must have really helped! Now that you know what gets your weight moving it will be easier to get to your next goal! Congrats!

  7. Yippeeeeeee Sherri, I wish I could give you a big hug. I am so proud of all your hard work. I was trying to send you a message on FB but it would not go through. Did you get rid of your FB page? I am thinking about going back to WW and had a few questions for you. My email is if you could let me know.

  8. W00t! Breaking into a new setup numbers is a beautiful thing! Congrats Sherri!

  9. Thanks girls! New post tomorrow after I weigh in. Fingers are always crossed on Saturdays!!
