The Incredible Shrinking Woman!

I’ve been consciously working each and every day to get to my goal at Weigh Watchers. Most recently I decided to watch my carbs a bit more and eat more fruit for the same number of points. I’ve been rewarded by two weeks with very good weight losses. Last week I was down 1.2 pounds and today, 2.2. What does this mean? It means I have just 4 pounds to go to my goal weight!!!

I’m pretty happy about this. That is probably a great understatement. You see a year ago I was really unhappy at the weight I was. I didn’t like the fact that my clothes were tight (and getting tighter) and my cheeks looked very much like a chipmunk! I also didn’t feel well. I had no energy and felt quite lethargic.

I’d thought about Weight Watchers for a while, but I felt like if I failed at one more thing, I would have a melt down.

Christmas came and New Years was on the way, so I looked up where the closest meeting was and I planned. Right after New Years I was going to go. I was also not going to miss a meeting unless I was in Intensive Care! And I haven’t missed one meeting.

It has not always been easy, and I have had weeks when I did everything right and didn’t lose an ounce! However, I kept going and I didn’t give up.

Now it is so close. My goal weight. The weight I have wanted to be for the longest time. It’s really happening!

I am the Incredible Shrinking Woman!!!

  3. I think you will become an example for the Blogworld !! Congratulations ! that’s wonderful it’s just like for somebody who finally managed to stop smoking !

  4. YAY!! I’m so happy for you!

    I keep thinking about WW, but am not sure 15 lbs is enough of a reason to go…that if I just got on the treadmill and off my butt I could do it on my own.

  5. Your commitment is commendable. I am still on the verge of joining WW. It has been nearly 19 months since I quit smoking now is the time to get the weight I gained when I quit off me. 🙂
