where I am right now

I've been in Weight Watchers (this latest time) for 7 weeks. Not exactly lightning-fast progress, but I know what I need to do. It's just a matter of doing it. And getting the head stuff right so I can do it.

P.S. So I can throw this piece of paper away...

Around the time that I rejoined WW, I got measured for a dress and I thought it would be interesting to recheck my measurements when I get to goal.

Measurements were:
Bust 40
Waist 33
Hips 44.5


  1. Thank you!
    That helped a lot. On Amazon and AFG I try SO HARD not to gripe. I never know what to say - I am down to 20 - The 20 IS way harder than the 55+ that came before it. . .
    but, because I know that others still have 200, 100, etc to go and 20 SOUNDS like whining/griping.

    Curious to know how tall you are - I am 5' 6 1/2" (remember - evidentally I GREW this year with yoga).

    I would love to have an extra inch or two in my spine right at the waist. My belly is very fat, but part of this is because I am short waisted and there is just no extra room for anything. You have your butt - I have my waist. I started at 215+ - going for 140 - or at least having my waist in proportion to the rest of my body so that I fit in clothes.

  2. I am about 5'6" as well, short-waisted too.

  3. P.S. For me, I think the first 20 or so pounds were the hardest and the most important -- until I lost those I felt hopeless and also felt that people were kind of mean to me.

    The last 20 or so are hard in a different way, because they are the difference between me being "average" and somehow invisible, and being "thin" and visible. This probably doesn't make a lot of sense but I am skittish about the attention, and the added pressure to "just lose a little more so you can be really thin."
