Before and During
I think I’ve been mentally writing this blog post since yesterday’s WI, or even from Thursday when I sensed that I just might hit 50 lbs down this week. I still cannot believe I did it. 50 lbs lost in a hair less than six months. For some time, one of my mini-goals had been to lose 50 lbs before my trip to Indy for Manning Bowl later this month. Since I made my previous mini-goal of being considered not obese in July, it was my “next” goal. With my gain over vacation it was in . . . → Keep Going: It’s not before and after, it’s before and during
Weight Watchers is working for me. If you’d asked me in March whether I thought I could weigh 164 pounds in August, I’d ask you what you were smoking and whether I could have some. I was more than 200 pounds and didn’t really have any interest in losing the weight, until something clicked.

The scale lies and makes no sense. Unfortunately, the same can be said for my measuring tape. I’m losing inches in places I’m not measuring because my clothes almost don’t fit – but I’m not losing in the measurables much . . . → Keep Going: I still don’t understand the scale
I CANNOT believe I’ve lost 25 lbs on WW. I lost a chunk of weight my freshman year in college but I don’t remember what the number was. Know I’m not down as low as I was then because I was wearing a size 10. More on that weight loss in another post.
and this time in a good way. I had no business losing 3.2 this week. It’s TOM, among other things. If nothing else, it proves that my chart (updated below) shows that whether or not I eat my weeklies has no bearing on my weight loss. I’m . . . → Keep Going: I don’t understand the scale
