Okay. So I too am an obsessive weigher. I wanted to try to stay off the scale until Monday but I have no will power. Isn't that funny? I can refrain from eating yummy foods when they are staring me in the face, but I weigh myself like the scale might be gone in the morning.
Weight watchers has been FANTASTIC for me. I am able to stick to basically the same diet, but I also have a cap on my food for the day. It's nice to have a number to get to. I eat more when I have to in order to reach my points (which is everyday) and I don't feel like I might be starving myself or something. It took at least 4 days before I saw smaller numbers on the scale but it's fantastic to FINALLY see some weight coming off this month. I don't think I can hit that 8 lb mark again... but I will keep pushing it and sticking to my diet and see what happens.
I've been running a lot lately and really enjoy it. I'm excited for the next 5k but a little nervous because it is a hilly course. I really prefer to run flat surfaces! ;o)
I was thinking yesterday about my weight struggles over the last 9 years and wondered why I didn't do this before. I mean, I have "TRIED" but I am with Katie when it comes to the word TRY, it's like an excuse all in itself. I've TRIED but have never actually pushed aside all the excuses and just done it.
I'm not sure what made this time different but it is different and today, I can say I've lost over 30 pounds in 3.5 months! :o)
So here's to losing at least 15 more in the next 6 weeks!! I've got weight watchers going for me now, and am not afraid to kick my own butt ;o)
