I know that, in the history of my journal, any time I take a month’s break it means that I am having a rough time of it. Turns out, that isn’t the case this time around. Sure, I had a little hiccup after our new daughter was born, but that was kinda to be expected, I think. The important thing is that I have rebounded. Big time! I am now at the lowest weight I’ve been at since May 2001, which is one of the last times I was really successful on Weight Watchers. I wish I had realized then that I need to stay on Weight Watchers for the rest of my life. I could’ve saved myself 7 years of weight fluctuations.
Anyway, I am feeling really psyched now. I am down another pound and a half. I actually fit into size 48 pants. I fit into chairs that were too small for me last year. And I am motivated! I want to lose a lot more weight, at a healthy, reasonable pace. My goal weight (220) is still quite a bit away. I have almost 70 more pounds before I get to that point. It seems reasonable to expect this to take another 40 weeks at a minimum. I am hoping to be at my goal weight by the end of this year. In between now and then, it’s just keepin’ on with what I am doing. Making good choices. Increasing my activity. Holding on and enjoying life. That’s the good stuff. That’s what I can use when my motivation is low.
I’m definitely looking forward to 2008! 🙂
