Another Milestone

When I joined Weight Watchers, I decided on Sunday as my weigh in day. It seemed a good way to end the week. I woke up yesterday I noticed a change in my body. My stomach was flatter. I didn’t feel quite so bloated. I have been hovering at 244 pounds (yes I don’t care if I tell the world how much I weigh) and haven’t been able to get that number down no matter how hard I tried. I’m not sure if being sick helped because I barely eat when I’m sick. Coughing so much caused a constant stomach ache so the last thing I wanted was food, unless it was plain toast.

I hesitated only slightly before I stepped on the scale. I waited for the numbers to stop on whatever weight it determined. I stared at the number for a moment. It couldn’t be right. I got off, let it reset, and stepped back on. The numbers landed on the same number. 241 pounds. Really? I almost cried. I knew what the number meant.

I got onto the internet and went straight to Weight Watcher and typed in the number. When I started Weight Watchers I weighed in at 251 pounds. I have lost ten pounds in almost four months. So many people have been complimenting me on how much they can see a change. I didn’t see the change until I got my new licence in the mail. I could not believe how much my face has thinned out.

I know that I am on the right track. I plan on walking a 5k this weekend as part of a challenge that I saw somewhere here on WordPress. They are challenging people to get up and move around. I would love to work up to running a 5k but until I lose a lot of my weight and let my knees heal a little, I am unable to. Today I tried on two of my goal jeans. One pair I got on with very little pull. The other, I was able to get past my upper thighs but not quite onto my hips. I have a little way to go, but I am making progress on getting into them. I actually like writing about my weight loss because I know that I’m not the only one in this world that is in this same situation. I will keep at it and I will meet my goal. My main goal for 2011 is to get healthy and I’m on my way.
