Random Thoughts

I seriously love a good before and after story.  I spent all morning in bed watching Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.  I cannot believe how much weight those people lose, and in such a short amount of time!  It can't be healthy... but it is motivating, so I continue to watch.  I heard somewhere that Chris Powell, the sexy host of the show that lost tons of weight, gained the weight back and now he's trying to lose it again. Is this true? Pics or it didn't happen.

Anyway, I am currently sitting at kitchen table, after finishing a bowl of fat-free cottage cheese and crushed pineapple (no sugar added, thank you very much).  Me thinks I want to do a workout/dance video because I've been feeling very flabby as of late, but I don't know which one.  Zumba is funner/easier to catch on to but learning an actual dance routine is more fulfilling. Hmm decisions, decisions.  If this was an email, I would sign off with "please advise."

WW Week #17

Good morning! This morning's weigh-in is brought to you by folgers coffee: a hug in a cup.

Anyway, I'm in a good mood! Why!? Oh I don't know... Maybe because I lost two pounds this week! And I'm currently sitting at my lowest weight since starting weight watchers :)

This brings my total weight loss to 17.2 pounds, which averages out to a pound a week. Slow and steady... One day at a time... These concepts are proving to be quite difficult since I'm so impatient when it comes to weight loss. But I'm learning!

Here's a chart of my progress since October:

Things to note:
  • I'm thiiis close to my 10% weight goal.
  • I've had two big spikes: one around thanksgiving and the other around Christmas/NYE.
  • I don't want to jinx it, but it looks like I am (finally) back on the path to decreasing numbers. Only time will tell...
