I guess my good week did not go unrewarded. For some reason, 167.8 sounds so much better than 169.4 -- so much closer to 165, which is just 10 pounds from goal. I am weird about numbers.
I had been grouchy about going to meetings because I was getting frustrated with my progress. Here's the history so far:
My "official" starting weight was 172.4 on May 30. I go to an @Work meeting and the first weigh-in is a freebie just to see if you have enough weight to lose to be eligible to join, so my first 2.4 from my starting point here don't count toward my WW awards. So even though it says here that I have lost 7, according to WW I haven't yet earned a 5-pound star. It is sad how much I want that little sticker.
- June 6: 170.0 -- good first week
- June 13: 168.4 -- finally broke the 170 barrier
- June 20: 169.2 -- oops
- June 27: 169.6 -- double oops
- July 11: 169.4 -- tiny loss is better than nothing
- July 18: 169.4 -- thought I had a pretty good week
- July 25: 167.8 -- finally edged away from that 170 ledge
It's amazing how my leader suddenly seemed inspiring and I felt love for all the people in my meeting today. Even the meeting topic was a good one this week. One of the women in my group said some nice things about "well, it's harder when you don't have as much to lose."
Four weeks left in this session, then we take a week off and start up again for fall. I doubt I could make goal by the time we're done, but I should be able to do it in the next session.
