I DID IT!! I have now officially lost 50lbs, a loss of 2lbs this week brought me to 50.5lbs. Not only that but I got my seventh silver 7 and I am now within a healthy BMI. Hitting 3 mini goals in the one week feels great.
I find it increasingly difficult to judge how I've done each week the closer I get to goal.
This week for instance, I've not been too well and so tracking was not the top of my priorities. I had to eat but I had no energy to be cooking weight watcher friendly food, but I obviously was not eating as much as I would have before and I had been good for the rest of the week so my efforts won out here.
There is also so much going on at this time of year. It seems every week there is something else that is leading me off track, and even just all the christmas food being out in every shop means temptation is everywhere. Its one of the most difficult times to stay on track but with only 9lbs to go until I hit goal it is more important than ever to stay on track. It is around this weight that I have always gotten stuck in the past and I do not want that to happen this time. I have 6 weigh ins to go until christmas and I would like to lose 3lbs by then. It may not seem like a lot, but with the time of year I would rather be realistic than disappointed. I also have to consider how to limit christmas weight gain but I will cross that bridge when I come to it. For now I am basking in my delight of getting that cert!
