Milestone!

Woo! I *finally* hit my next Weight Watcher's milestone. Over 35 pounds lost! Woo!

For me, it's another kind of milestone, too. I've started (and stopped) Weight Watchers many times as an adult. I watched my mother do it as a child, and know that it can work, I've just never had the stick-to-it-ness to make it work for me. Until now.

It's not the fastest weight loss on earth, but given the events of the last year, I think it's safe to say that without the attention I've paid to it, I'd be at least 45 pounds heavier than I am right now.

And now that training for the triathlon is ramping up, I'm only expecting good results.

While it's most easy to measure the results in pounds, I've noticed so many other things, too. I have more energy. I'm stronger. My skin is healthier. I just generally feel better--both physically and mentally. I'm still fat, no doubt about that, but I'm actively working towards a healthier lifestyle, and that makes me feel good.

Yay! That's wonderful. :) Congratulations.

It's great to feel the difference in the mood, isn't it. I love that part. :)

Mood enhancers...
And this weekend, when I sorted TWO BIG BOXES of clothes that are too big out of my dresser and closet! Wow. It was a great feeling!

That's so great! I've only lost a few pounds, but nothing feels better than my underwear feeling looser, even. And I'm wearing pants today that I'm practically swimming in.

I mean, when I bought them, they were loose. Now they're ridiculous. Love it.

I tossed the now-baggy underwear this weekend. It was great fun!

I'm so happy for you, but you need to stop sending all of that excess weight my way!

:)

Congrats, and keep up the healthy living!!

Woot!! Woot!!

:-) Glad to hear it, dear... healthy is a good thing. I've lost 2 to 3 pant-sizes myself (day job is MANUAL LABOR.. but I can lift heavy objects now... go me.) I will writecha again soon (when I can get back on line).

Thank you again for the lovely box that you and Rhonda sent. It cheered me up at a very low time, and I believe I am bouncing back now. More stories later when I can write more (it's bedtime here).

Lots of love and hugs to you, and the rest of the gang!! Love, Deb
