I knew I was going to be way too busy studying and being a mom and wife to get to Weight Watchers tonight so I weighed in on the Wii Fit.
Results: -2.4 pounds for a total of 23.2 pounds gone.
This means I reached my 10% goal!!!!!
I'm a little bummed that I won't get that fancy keychain this week after waiting so long for it but I'll grab it next week. And get to sign the wall! Woohoo!
And now, Deep Thoughts with a Happy Texan........
I never thought I would ever lose this weight. It seemed to be something I was just doomed to carry around with me for the rest of my life. I've tried so many darn diets and nothing worked. I'm sure that many of the diets were fine but they didn't fit my lifestyle and eating habits. And I guess I wasn't going to conform to fit the plans either.
I am literally astounded, like jaw on the floor astounded, that I have been losing weight this easily. Yeah, there are challenges from time to time but I'm actually losing. I'm not even counting the days until I can stop "the diet." I realize that any eating lifestyle is a diet but I, along with most Americans, have come to know the word "diet" as a temporary eating plan to attain a goal and then quit.
As the weight has dropped off my self confidence and happiness have increased. Weight loss won't solve all of my problems but it sure as hell doesn't hurt! :)
Not only has Weight Watchers helped me but my family has reaped the benefits as well. Every one of us, excluding my 8 year old son, has lost weight and clothes sizes. I feel a little guilty knowing that it was my fault that they had the weight issues because as soon as I start cooking food healthier we all lost weight.
This 10% goal is such a mile stone for me. I didn't think it was possible that first night I showed up at a Weight Watchers meeting on a whim. I was so shy and feeling slightly defeated. Now look at me. Just 11 weeks!
Now it's time to set some new goals for the week:
- eat 5 servings fruits/veggies each day
- keep up with my training schedule for the Walk-It Challenge
- try a new exercise activity this week (Zumba, Bosu, Spinning?)
- stay on plan
- look for something to be happy about each day
- tell my family how much I love them each day
