After my original post, I found myself stuck at 8.6 lbs lost. I knew I needed to step it up. But as soon as I realized this, I got a cold and lost all motivation. Finally last week, I started exercising! I ran 4 times and the difference was evident immediately. I had more energy… and I lost 1.2lbs! A fresh start!
Our meeting last Sat morning was focused on Thanksgiving. It was helpful. We planned how we wanted to eat that day so we didn’t get depressed by how it turned out. I think it helped me. I ran in the a.m. then I ate really well at lunch. I went a little crazy in the evening but it was still better than my old way of eating.
Tomorrow morning is weigh-in so I guess we will find out if it is really working. Wish me well.
Oh yeah-I found reading Leah’s goals really motivating. In Weight Watchers, you don’t set a goal until you lose 10% of your weight. But I think I would like to put one on paper. My goal is to lose 51 lbs – to go from 171 lbs to 120 lbs. I don’t know what it will feel like to weight
120 lbs – in college, I lost 17 lbs to get down to 128 lbs and I wore a bikini!
