Weight Loss

Weigh-In Week 83: Who wears size 8 jeans?

I do! Woohoo! Over the weekend I picked up a pair of new jeans at Old Navy and the 10s were too big…I had to get the 8s and they’re not even too tight, just right. What?!

On a bright note at weigh-in today I was down 1.5lbs for a new weight of 163.8lbs with a total loss of 87.8lbs. So I officially have no idea what’s up with my body. Yup, that’s where I’m at. I was expecting a gain due to over indulging on cookies and icing while baking for a party this weekend, and too much chocolate! I didn’t think I’d done enough activity, my runs were shorter this week and, and, and… well lo and behold a loss, and a pretty big one for me. I officially have no idea what’s going on.

This loss also means I came the closest I’ve been in meeting my monthly weight-loss goal since March! Woohoo – 3.2lbs this month. This is also the most I’ve lost in one month since May! Wow, talk about a slow ride. Whenever I feel bad about this, especially given the struggles since the summer I have to think back that I’ve lost almost 40lbs this year! That’s great and I shouldn’t diminish it. So yes, I am proud of my successes this year even if it wasn’t as fast as I wanted. Besides, who wants all that loose skin – not me! 😛

Also – those of you following WW – have you heard about the new changes? Apparently we’ll be told at the meetings as of December 4th – so next week for me! The teaser (and rumour) I’ve heard so far is a return to the daily points range. E.g. instead of 29, we’ll have 26-29 daily points.  Now WW likes to bring in new stuff on a fairly regular basis, but I will say my experience with WW has always been with single points target. Over the years I’ve been on: Winning Points, Flex Points, Turnaround, and Momentum – all with minimal actual changes. But this proves to be a bigger change. I’m curious to see how it goes as I know for a fact I have days were I eat below my daily target.

If you’re following WW how do you feel about the new changes coming?

  1. OHHHH Isn’t that the BEST surprise?!? Congrats!

    As far as the new WW changes… bring it! I love it when they stir it up… just a little… it keeps things fresh and exciting, for me anyway! 🙂

  2. Hey, congrats on your ongoing weight loss. How inspiring. I’m another in a long list of those blogging about my weight loss. I’m a guy and started at 404. After nine weeks I’ve lost 25.2 pounds. I asked my friends on Facebook to keep me accountable and that has worked so well so far.

    Anyway, way to go! You’ve inspired me.

  3. I wonder how the WW online paying members like me will receive the new information? In any case, I always find that it gives me a boost and refreshes my mind when they change things around a little.

    WTG on the size 8! wow!

    1. Hi Caroline – Hmmm…I’m not sure. I’m a meetings member and get the etools with the monthly pass which is available in my area. I think the info will be coming online in the next week or so? Perhaps? I don’t know!

      Thanks, the 8s feel great so far 🙂
