It has been 32 weeks since I started Weight Watchers. I started about two months before Christmas in 2008. I figured I'd start early to help keep me on track over the holidays. Since then, I had a gold of 7-squared, where I would loose 7 pounds a month for 7 months. Didn't quite hit that. LOL! Then it was 25 pounds by July 23rd, the day we left for vacation. I missed it by .8 pounds! So mad! LOL! Then we came home from vacation and I got sick, so between vacation and sickness, I gained 1.2 pounds. :-(
I spent this week working on loosing. The week didn't start off great. I actually was really concerned about this week because I had lunch out scheduled for Wednesday and dinner out scheduled for Thursday (the night before weigh-in). I wasn't sure how well this would work out. I tried Wednesday to eat healthy at lunch, but I caved and ate my fries. They were good though... Then last night, I ordered a turkey burger, but asked for broccoli INSTEAD of the fries. Progress. But I still worried. Would there be too much salt in last night's meal? Did I drink enough water?
Set the alarm this morning to go to WW at 9:30 a.m. like I have all summer. Apparently, the alarm went off, I turned it off, and went back to bed! Woke up at 8:55 a.m., which is 5 minutes before I normally leave the house! Opps! I changed quick, put on deodorant, and perfume and headed out. Got to WW and it was pretty quiet, not too many people there. Went up and weighed in, hoping that I at least lost what I gained last week. And the moment of truth came - 2.2 pounds...enough to hit the elusive 25 pound mark!!! I am so freaking happy about this! I missed my deadline/goal by about three weeks, but I hit it!!! I am officially at the half way point in my weight-loss efforts. And now need just 9.8 pounds in the next 7.5 weeks to hit my next goal of 12 pounds. Yea!
