weight Watchers... day 69

Starting date: 3.05.09
Starting weight: 170.2
Last Weigh-in: 160.4 (5.02.09)

That's a total of 8 weigh-in's, at about 1.2 lbs per weigh-in, for a total of 9.8 lbs! Wow, Who knew I would last this long...? I am so proud of the progress I've made thus far even though, yes, I could be doing better then I have. But I'm still proud of my progress! :) Beside, it took a few years to put it on, how can I expect to take it off any different? Ok -let me just say, by golly, if it takes a few years to take it off, I'm seeking a surgical answer! :)

I do wish it can easier for me though but I suppose without some trials, you wouldn't know what you were made of -much like the rest of life! I suppose it doesn't help that I have a tendency to reward myself with the very thing I am trying to lose either... food!

In the past if I dropped 5lbs, I would say "Wow, I did great! Let's celebrate by going out to eat!!" :) Or, "I've had such a hard day/week -I just need something quick and easy -Pizza anyone?" I'm happy to report, I still have 1 frozen pizza in my freezer and when Lydia and I get together, my first food suggestion isn't pizza anymore!! I've went from eating pizza at least once a week to every other week (sometimes longer!). Big steps for me!!!

I am also happy to report that I have been eating more fruits and vegetables at every meal. I'm not a big fan of the veggies yet, so they are usually the first thing off my plate but that just leaves more time to enjoy the rest of my yummy food -without guilt! It's getting better with every passing meal though. :) I've also notice that it is putting forth a better example for my little one as well... she may not eat veggies like she used to, but at least she see's I am making an effort too and will take a Small bite too. Yea!! My next goal is getting her to eat something other than hot dogs and cheese!

Till next time... Have an enjoyable weekend blogger's.
