This post should probably go on WeightLessInBarrie, but I am choosing to post it here. In fact, I am feeling so good that I just might post it in both places.
Today is Bragging Rights day for me. As many of you know, I am a Weight Watcher Lifetime member, and I have been struggling with a couple of unwanted pounds for a little while. This is all due to some bad habits that I have re-acquired and some challenges over the past little while.
Well, I weighed in yesterday, and I am DOWN 1.6 pounds! Yay me!
I felt that I was down anyway. I could tell by the fit of my clothing, and also by my fitness level, which has increased slightly, but noticeably.
You might wonder exactly what I do to accomplish this. Well, it is a bit of work, but nothing unmanageable. There are a few, ahem, rules. I track (write down) what I eat each day, and assign points values to the foods. I also know where I need to be to lose, and I try to stay in that range. I drink water. I don't drink many soda drinks, diet or not. I eat fruits and veggies, and watch the carbs. I drink milk, specifically soy milk. I exercise five nights a week. I limit my caffeine intake.
Even with all of this, I never feel restricted. I never feel like I am cheating myself of anything. If I am having a chocolate day where I crave chocolate, I have 'some', enough for a taste, and then it's done. I don't buy chocolate bars as a rule, but I always make sure that I have 'some' chocolate in the house....just in case.
So, yay me!
I think I need an icon for that, don't you?
Congratulations! Keep up the good work, I know how hard weight loss (and keeping it off) is so it's not something I would say lightly.
Yay you!! Once you find what works for you, stick with it.
Congratulations and well done too on shifting some pounds. Its a good start which I hope will be sustained immensely. I look forward to seeing a new improved masgblog. (wimk, wink) LOL!!!!
Why shouldn't you have an icon all your very own? Sounds like you've more than earned it to me.
That's wonderful :)
I guess you're too tired to post tonight. ;)
Ah excercise 5 nights a week? I'm tired just thinking about it! But good for you- Congratulations!!!!!!
I remember when you started than insane staircase training at work some years ago -- 18 flights, was it? every day at lunch?) and you lost 19 lbs and told me even your ring finger had gotten slimmer.
You are amazing. :)
lattégirl - yes we did 18 floors of stair climbing each day. At lunch we would climb to the top, rest a bit while our lungs were burning, then, with rubbery legs, slither our way back down to the bottom.
It was so cool.
