Now...on to today's news:
|My honest journey on the scale this year.|
This has been my journey since going back to Weight Watchers last spring. I lost steadily at first, hitting 10 pounds lost around Memorial Day weekend and then I started gaining again. Within 2 months I had gained back all but about 1.5 pounds of what I had lost.
It was frustrating, but I was in the middle of moving my daughters to college, so I gave a half-hearted attempt and tried not to let it bother me.
After they were moved and settled, and we moved in August, I decided I was in a good place to focus on my health again.
My first goal was to lose those 10 pounds again.
Well, here I am ... as of today 191.6 -- down -10.2 from my 2016 highest weight.
At 202.8 my clothes were really starting to feel tight; and these were my newly purchased size 16w. Ugh. Now they are fitting better. Nothing is really loose, but I don't feel as squished in them.
Reaching my first goal of losing these 10 pounds [for the 2nd time this year] gives me hope and motivation to keep going. Glory!
