My Progress

...but 4.2 is so much sweeter.

So, I had a couple of slip-ups this past week. First off, I stopped at a Chinese buffet for lunch on Monday. That was bad. I really can't control myself at buffets, and Chinese is pretty much the only kind of buffet I will go to. I also found myself staying up late a couple of nights this week. When I have to be up by 6.45 to make my workout fit in the schedule, I really can't be staying up much past midnight, and I was up at 2 and 3am a couple of times.

I did very well aside from those rough spots. I felt like I was really in control of myself, from pushing myself on what workouts I did attend, to passing up on pizza I found sitting in the break area at work. That was a big realization for me. Before WeightWatchers, I wouldn't have had a second thought about scooping up a slice or two of that pizza hut and been on my way. I guess I really have changed my outlook on food. This is promising.

So I made my goal. No real shocker, I was determined to get it and I did in spite of a couple of obstacles this week. I stood on the scale after a great pre-weigh-in workout and told my meeting leader 'ya gotta tell me it was 3, cause that's what I need for my 10%.' She smiled and told me, 'will 4.2 work?' That made my day, truly. It felt so good having the ladies at the meeting cheer for me, and I got a nice little copper plated keyring thingy for hitting 10%. Oh, and another star on my bookmark since I crested the 35 lb mark.

I feel great, and am looking forward to what is to come. I got my GF to really get it in gear with WW. She lost 1.6 this week. We also started a little mini-comp to see who can lose 5% of their weight first, starting with this most recent weigh-in. We'll see how that goes.

Progress so far: 36.2 pounds. New goal, 299.9 (aka bye bye 300s)!
