Courage is defined as weighing in and recording it the Day after Thanksgiving!
I'm up 2.5 lbs which I expected. I've been hovering around 22-23 lbs lost for the last couple of weeks.
I picked up the measuring tape to see where my waist and hip measurements were, as I was shopping for Christmas items for the husband to give to me..
Happy to see I had lost 0.5 inch off my chest, 1 inch off the waist, and one inch off the hips since I had lost measured and recorded, in September! So progress keeps getting made!
I am an on-line subscriber of Weight Watchers. WW is revising their "points" system on Monday, so I am looking forward to the new program. I think it's going to be much more time-consuming (as a long time WW'er, I've had points of many many foods memorized) in the beginning, but it will also be as a "Fresh Start". I believe this should kick-start my next phase of weight loss. I expect to be 15 pounds lighter by May!
Oh, and for anyone wanting to lose weight, don't wait "Till after the holidays". Really? Why then need to lose another 5 lbs on top of what you want to lose? It's really a good feeling to get through the Christmas season either weight-neutral or down a few pounds. Why not weigh in December 1 and either eat correct or exercise enough (and that could be alot of exercise!!) to drop a few pounds?
I'll put my money where my mouth is. I will lose 5 lbs by January 1 2011. That would be these 2.5 lbs I've put back on, and 2.5 more. Doable!!!!!!!
