I know some of my family may feel uncomfortable with me speaking so honestly about my current weight issues and what I’m doing to fix those issues. I’m not writing these blogs for them though – they’re all for me.
So, I’m just completed a month of Weight Watchers and I’m celebrating for two reasons – 1) I achieved my 5% weight loss goal (losing 5% of your starting weight) and more importantly, 2) I left the 300 club. That’s right, there’s no longer a 3 in the beginning of my weight and there will never be a three in the beginning ever again. I’ve said this before and it obviously didn’t stick – this time is different though.
When I started Weight Watchers this time, I was told my ideal healthy weight is between 145 and 179. That seems insane to me. I can’t remember the last time I weighed that much, but dammit I’m shooting for 175. Oddly, this time around, 175 doesn’t seem to hard or so far away. I’m doing this the healthy way and the right way, but after a month, I’m already seeing the end in sight, which is both amazing and scary.
I’m making great strides though – I’m walking faster, feeling better, and my clothes are getting looser.
I’m still taking it step by step, day by day.
Oh, as for writing, I’m going to go clean the bathroom. We had to bathe both dogs tonight because they decided to play in the mud.
