weigh-in report, 4/10/2007
This week I lost 1.2 of the 2 pounds I gained last week. I am guessing that if I hadn't had my big oops with Easter and its aftermath, I might have lost a little more.
Still, I'm happy, especially since my friend M. commented on how much thinner I was looking. I doubt that I've lost more than a pound or two since she last saw me, but it's nice to hear all the same.
We had a substitute Weight Watchers leader today, a real True Believer. She was nice but not quite my style -- she did the meeting like it was a stand-up comedy routine. But I appreciate her enthusiasm, and the program seems to have been fairly life-changing for her. She was more than 100 pounds heavier when she started Weight Watchers, and her doctor was able to take her off all of her medications when she reached her 10% goal.
It's amazing, really, that all the leaders in my town seem to have lost at least 100 pounds. It has to take a lot of patience and dedication to lose that much on Weight Watchers, which is designed to be a moderate, slow-but-steady kind of program. I only have 6 more pounds to goal and it seems like I'll never get there. I weighed 172.2 when I rejoined almost a year ago, so I've lost just a little more than 10 pounds.
My Weight Watchers anniversary is coming up in May. You know what I'd like as a gift? To be at goal (or at least within 2 pounds) and not to have to pay for my meetings anymore.
