I’ve lost 10%!!!

Tuesday and time for my weekly weigh-in and today is a special occasion. I weighed-in and was down 1.2lbs once again for a total loss of 25.2lbs!  This means I’ve reached my first goal of losing 10% of my body weight.  WOOHOO!!!

It took me a total of 22 weeks to get here. (It says 23 in the picture, but that’s because they accidently stamped Sept 14 twice as you can see).  That seems like a long time – even to me.  But I didn’t really get serious about my recommittment to weight loss until about week 14 /the beginning of August.  Between May 4, 2010 and July 27, 2010 I only lost 6.8lbs.  I kept losing and gaining the same weight over and over again. Well something switched in August. I knew that I could do it, I just wasn’t understanding WHY I wasn’t doing it. So I put my big girl panties on and said enough is enough. I took control and here I am – 18.4lbs down in 9 weeks! Yippee! Here’s a photo of my weigh-in booklet:

It’s such a silly thing – but I really like those 5 pound stickers. They really do keep me motivated. But that’s not the only thing I got. At today’s meeting I also got my 10% keychain AND my 25lb charm :).  For those not familiar with Weight Watchers they give you little gifts for various milestones.  When you lose 10% of your weight you get a key chain, at 16 weeks for attending meetings you get a little charm with clapping hands, and then you get disc charms at 25lbs, 50lbs, and 100lbs, and charms when you hit your goal weight and lifetime status (maintaining for 6 weeks). So far I have my keychain, 16week charm, and 25lb disc!  Here’s a photo of that too:

Just in case any of you are wondering what it says on my sticker card (it’s in French because they were out of English ones when I signed up) it says “Adieu les régimes. Allô la vie.” Which translated means “Good-bye diets. Hello life.”  I have to say that is how I feel – I don’t feel like I’m on a diet, but rather that I’m getting better and better at making healthy life and food choices.

Reaching a goal isn’t complete without a REWARD!  So after my meeting I went out to La Senza and bought myself 3 cute new bras.  I was going to go in and get a new plain black bra, which I did, but then decided this was a good occasion to splurge on a couple of funky ones as well.  Here they are:

Aren’t they the cutest?!  I am feeling absolutely fantastic today.  What a great feeling.  Now onto the next goal – to get out of the 200s!
