Oh yay! I can’t believe it. I weighed in today and was down 2.2lbs for a new weight of 175lbs with a total of 76.6lbs lost so far!
I was NOT expecting this at all. I can usually feel when I’ve lost and today I still felt the same. But lo and behold there was a loss of 2.2lbs!
This means I’ve passed the 75lbs lost milestone at weight watchers and I got a new charm for my keychain. Here’s a pic of my booklet and my charms so far:
I also have my 16 week charm, but I forgot to take a picture of it. The shiny one is the 75lbs – the others are getting dull from my key chain. My leader also found me an old WW magnet which I am thrilled to have! YIPPEE!!!
I think I’ve passed some sort of a threshold with my weight loss. MANY of my friends and colleagues have been commenting on my loss and paying me compliments. A good friend at work commented how suddenly I’d lost a lot of weight. But I really haven’t. As you all know, it’s actually been a bit slow and frustrating the last couple months. But I think that something has happened with my body – maybe it’s due to weight loss or maybe it’s all the running but it’s definitely changed.
I keep saying “I think” because to be honest I still can’t quite see it. At least not in the mirror. I can feel it when I lie down and feel my sternum and my hip bones, or when I just look at my clavicles, but as far as a whole body change, I don’t see it as much. It’s such a psychoclogical journey I find. I hope my brain will catch up.
What I do know is that I have no summer clothes. Nothing fits anymore. Really it’s a great problem to have, but I’m not looking forward to the cost!!
