Status Update

I started the Weight Watcher’s PointsPlus program last Friday. Friday was my first weigh in – and guess what? I lost 1.8 pounds! That’s my biggest loss in MONTHS and I wasn’t really trying to lose – I was eating on “maintenance”.

I ate all my extra weekly allowance points, as well as all my activity points. I was never hungry, I ate way more than I thought I should, but still, I lost. There must be some strong magic in that program.

I’m excited about week two because I’m down to 172.4 pounds (naked, at home, before breakfast). In 1.4 pounds, I will have lost 150 pounds and be at my endo’s goal weight for me. That could happen NEXT FRIDAY. How exciting is that?

In 2.5 pounds, I’ll be at 169.9 and below 170 for the first time since 1981. That’s turning the clock back by thirty years. And that could happen in a couple of weeks (theoretically). It’s a theory I’d like to consider, target and embrace with hopefulness.

I’m ready to be at goal. Not just physically, but mentally.

Bring it on!
