Weigh In Week 10

It has been 10 weeks on Weight Watchers.  It is amazing how quickly that has gone and I have seem pretty astounding results, particularly for me.  If you recall, I ended up with a gain last week and it was frustrating.  I realize it was mostly stress and hormones but it is a challenge to to keep thinking positive about it.  My goal for this week was to do the plan well and hopefully lose what I gained.  It turns out that I lost a little more too...

-3.2 Pounds Lost
-25 lbs Lost to Date!!!

25 Pounds!  Somehow that makes it seem legitimate to me more than 20+ pounds does.  I have been at this for 2.5 months and lost 25 pounds.  I can do it.

I mean look at this....

That has come off my body.  Interestingly enough it can still be a challenge for me to see it, but I know it is there.  And I feel that it is gone...working out has gotten easier and I am able to push myself more and more.  Carrying Little Goat up the stairs is easier.  Going up 3 flights of stairs for work on a Sunday morning is easier.  Getting dressed is harder because so many of my clothes are ill fitting.  I am more and more wearing smaller size pants and tops.

I ran on Monday after my last blog post - I ran for 2 minutes straight.  I have never done that before.  I have a plan to take down the mile and while I'm still not sure it is totally feasible I am on board.  I notice when I skip the gym and don't like the feeling.

I am making good changes and seeing the results.

Today I got a 25lb medallion at Weight Watchers and the meeting cheered for me.  They really cheered and I got a bit choked up.  Because this little washer...


...it represents so much that I didn't think I could accomplish.  And now I can't wait to add to it, which I will.  I believe I can do it and I am cheering today too.
