You need to shout that like those world cup soccer announcers shout it! Because that's how it was in my head! I MADE GOAL!!!!!!
Today was my first day of training for Weight Watchers and I was training in the meeting I normally attend so I didn't get to weigh in until the end of the training. I was pretty nervous because it was going to be my first weigh in as an employee and so I knew my number was a much bigger deal. I have been insanely hungry this week. I'm pretty sure my thyroid medication is off and when it gets off then I can get super hungry and eat everything near me. That's pretty much what I did this week. I tried very hard to pick free foods to keep the damage down but I ate.
So, getting up on that scale today I was expecting about a pound gain and instead I lost 1.4! That means I'm actually .4 less than goal! I can't tell you how excited I was! My leader asked me how I was going to reward myself and I hadn't really decided because I was expecting that gain. So, I promptly went out and bought myself the beige heels I've been coveting forever. So, as of today I have lost 55 pounds!
Interestingly enough today was also the Oprah interview with Jennifer Hudson who is the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. I found it so interesting that she said she still has it in her head that she is the old weight. I experienced the same thing (and still experience) of thinking that I am still over 200 pounds and not able to wear the cute clothes that I see in the stores. It really is something that takes a while to get used to and I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in that feeling.
So, if anyone out there who has been thinking about changing their life, don't put it off any more! You deserve it!!
