-5.6 pounds THIS WEEK
-12 lbs lost to date
Of all of the numbers I was expecting this was NOT it, but of course I am thrilled. My instinct says that my body needed a bit of time to realize I was serious about this so it withheld my bigger number longer. Or maybe my metabolism is doing better. Or maybe it was focusing on water this week. Regardless I am very excited to see that number on the scale. This means I've dropped to another "decade" in the weight loss, hit my 10 lb mark and am only 5 lbs away from my first 5% goal.
Whatever it was that cause the big week this week, I will take it. I still wish I could better tell where the weight is coming off of, but I trust that it must be coming from somewhere. And just in case the number isn't exciting enough for me this week, here is the visual of my weight loss.
Not too shabby if I do say so myself! :D
The trick this week is to not get complacent. It is almost guaranteed that I'll have a smaller loss or even a small gain next week coming off the big loss, so I need to keep on track and not "reward" my success with things that will get me off track. I think I can manage that.
And for a final non scale victory, I have tracked for 32 days straight since I joined Weight Watchers. One whole month of healthy changes down, with success to show for it. I am committing now to try just as hard all February long!
