Weigh In Wednesday - Week 3

Well, I worked hard this week, like the last too and am pleased to say that I still had a loss!  So without further ado:

 -2.6 Pounds
- 6.4 lbs Total to Date

 I don't know if it is because it was over 2lbs again, or if it was just breaking the 5lb mark and getting a sticker at my Weight Watchers meeting today but I feel much better about this weigh in than the past ones.  I seem to be getting the hang of this despite some daily or weekly challenges.  


Most importantly though, I am continuing to make choices consciously and changing my plans if I make a poorer choice so I don't spiral out of control.  Some victories this week include having 5 days of activity, avoiding dessert while out with the family, and bringing my lunch several times to work.


It makes me excited to get to 10lbs, even though it will likely be another 2-3 weeks before that is even likely.  But it is coming.  Also, I'm getting close to changing my "tens" number - which is always good.  Hopefully next week.


And in the spirit of putting my loss in perspective here is my total pounds lost to date in food - 5lbs of sugar and a pound and a quarter of butter.  (was almost to adding another stick - oh well).  Imagining that off my frame is so much more tangible than the random number.  Goodbye sugar bag - I won't miss you.

Hip hip hooray! Great work, Liz! Love the visuals of the bag (soon to be BAGS!) of sugar and the butter sticks - I always found that helpful when I did WW several years ago. Be proud and keep up the updates - I enjoy following your progress!

Great job Liz! I know you've been frustrated the past few weeks, but you are actually losing weight at a great rate!

Awesome! I raise my cup of herbal tea plus truvia to you!

My supervisor (who I'm attending WW meetings with) hit her 20 lb mark on Monday. SO AWESOME. Soon you'll be hitting that multiple sugar bags mark too!

Liz, are you doing this all by yourself? i.e. is Mr. Goat or a buddy doing it with you? Because that is amazing if you're doing it all solo to boot! So hard!

YAY, Liz!

Your recent posts about weight loss have inspired me, so today, I sucked it up and dragged myself to a Zumba class. I only lasted 30 our of 45 minutes, but it's a start, right? Once I get over the feeling that I have to throw up, I'll probably be glad I did it. :)

Again, congratulations!
