Weigh in and Celebrations

Down 1.6 for a total of 21 lbs.  Thats also 10% of my starting body weight.  I am thrilled.  It has taken a long time to get here, over 2 months to lose this last 5 lbs!  I gained a bit over the holidays and that didn't help, but basically I have just lost a little each week.  Today our Leader at the meeting had one of her quotes up that was very appropriate "Slower is Faster than Never".  I guess!! So, new goal, another 10%.  I am sure this is going to be a long drawn out process, but thats ok.  I am post menopausal (had a complete hysterectomy in 2001) and the lack of natural hormones alone is going to make it harder and slower.  But only quitting is going to make it impossible, so will keep marching on.  I know there are alot of things I could be doing that would hasten the process (more activity being the primary one), but I will jump off cross that bridge when I get to it.  Not sure about dinner tonite, but will blog it up later.  Tacos for dinner tomorrow and I promised myself guacamole with chips for Superbowl Snacks.  I may regret that.  We'll see.


  1. Congratulations!! I am SO proud of you!! I know that sometimes its hard to find the patience, but the whole "slow and steady wins the race" line really is true. This is my 2nd time on WW and this time it has taken me longer to lose the weight, but overall I feel better and have better results overall. I just know that you are going to keep kicking ass!!

  2. Thanks, Suz. The kids are coming over to watch the game and I am making my tacos for dinner. I can eat 3 of them for 8 points and that really is enough. I already had some guacamole but only about a quarter cup and actually, am quite happy with that. So may not be as bad as it could have been after all.
