Eight Weeks

Well today is Tuesday. This is my usual weigh in day for Weight Watchers. I have lost another .8 lbs this week bringing a grand total of 16.6 lbs lost in eight weeks. I thought that I would have done better than this but I guess the key is to just keep losing no matter how small. I didn't think that I had a very good week. The girls and I got together and I had this great idea to make vodka smoothies. MMMMMMMM they went down way too well. Then with the weekend throwing my eating off track i had no idea what kind of progress I was making.

Sometimes I see that my shape is changing drastically but the scale does not reflect this. Oh well upward and onward right. This is my journey that I have chosen and so far the babysteps are taking me somewhere. Next year at this time, my friend and I have a date for her birthday. She will be coming into a new decade and we plan to celebrate this along with our weight loss victory together on the tilt a whirl. A carnival ride neither of us has been able to experience in many many years. Well Here I am and I'm doing it!!!!

This is one of those times where being a loser makes you a winner.

more often than not, you'll notice the changes your scale doesn't - it isn't ALWAYS about the weight. If you stay consistent and positive, when you feel like 10 pounds have gone but it's only showing 2 on the scale - the scale will eventually catch up!! Stay positive - you're doing great!
