Belated Week 30 Weigh-In!

Wow- I've been doing Weight Watchers for 30 weeks? I really looked like
this
just 30 weeks ago?

I remember thinking 30 weeks was a long time, and dreading how it would take me possibly until Peyton's 1st birthday to lose all the weight I wanted to. It's really not so bad, because it's not like I had to stay at 181 pounds until I hit my goal and lose it all at once; it's gradual. I keep looking and feeling better and it just keeps going. Losing weight is just one of the many things I have to do each week. What's one more item on the list?

Last week I weighed in at 146.2 and yesterday I weighed in at

146!
It's not the most flattering picture. In fact, I look skinnier in the picture 2 weeks and 1.8 pounds ago, but oh well. Weighing in at 146 has allowed me to hit my next milestone: 35 total pounds lost!
'Tis cause to celebrate :)

Way Belated Week 29 Weigh-In

Oops, I forgot to write a post last week. Oh well. In a nutshell...

Week 28 I weighed 147.8 pounds and was a little bothered by gaining weight.

Week 29 I weighed in at 146.2 pounds, so back on track! Whoo hoo! And my family came in town and Alabama won! Roll Tide! Good news all around.

146.2!

Week 28 Weigh-In

Last week I weighed in at 146.8 pounds, and yesterday I weighed in at

147.8


Thanks, Debbie Downer. That's how I feel too.

So, I gained a pound. Not surprising. I stopped tracking my points, and I finished off a bag of fun size Nestle Crunch bars during school this week. Plus, we get about 25 minutes for lunch each day, and I often opt to just work instead of eating, which isn't healthy.

I realize I've lost my focus a little bit. I've been eating more junk, while still eating less overall. But that's not the point, nor was it ever the point. I'm trying to get healthier, not just look better. If I get 33 points to use everyday, I can't use them on burgers and candy and Coke everyday. I can't skip meals. I can't stress eat. I thought it would be so much easier to lose weight once I got back to work because I wouldn't have anything to snack on. Trouble is, I keep candy as motivation for my students, prizes for games, and presents for birthdays. I guess I'm going to have to keep stocked full of candy I don't like so I'm not tempted to eat it. That sucks.

BUT, despite all this, I did drop a dress size from two weeks ago. I forgot to write about it last week, but I am officially a size 10 now. Slight celebration for that. Yay!
