Today is my 1 year anniversary with Weight Watchers.
Wow. *letting it sink in*
A year ago, that sounded like a long time coming.
But if you ask me now. It just flew by.
In one year…
-I started and graduated from the Couch to 5K program. (There’s an app for that!)
-I’ve run eight 5Ks (3 miles).
-I’ve taken weekly Zumba and Pilates classes (and still do).
-I’ll be running my first 8K (5 miles) in 15 days.
-I signed up for my first 1/2 marathon (eek!).
-I read nutritional labels and realize that 1 package is NOT necessarily the calories written on the box. Don’t forget serving size people!
-I bought a digital food scale and use it religiously.
-I cook more.
-I still love to bake cupcakes.
-I love to eat out (and still eat pizza at least 1x a month!)
-I have control of my depression.
-I have collar bones!
-I wear pants that don’t have elastic.
-I bought belts.
-I can cross my legs when I sit down.
-I’m eating so many new foods including bananas and beans. Me? A self-proclaimed banana and bean hater!
-I love myself again.
weight: 191.2 –> 139.2 lbs
thighs: -7 inches
waist: -14 inches
bust: -11 inches
arms: -2 inches
jean size: 18 –> 6
BMI: 34.9 (grossly obese) –> 25.5 (borderline overweight/normal)
In 52 weeks, I’ve had 38 losses, 11 gains and 3 maintains but do you “see” the gains?? Nope! Don’t let gains discourage you! Success is not a straight line. There will be bumps and blips along the way. You only fail if you quit.
It’s been a pretty amazing journey. And it’s still not over.
Even after I reach my personal goal (I’m so close!), this is a lifelong journey. Instead of fighting it, I’m embracing it. One day at a time.
Thank you READERS for continuing on my journey with me…
