Weekly Weigh In

I had a good week this week, due I suspect in no small part to the fact that I quit with the Seasonale. It was not a good fit for me, so it is gone. And I feel so much better.

So I had a pretty decent drop this week, down 2.4 pounds for a total of 48.8. Only 1.2 to go before I hit 50, so I'm hoping to do that this week. It will be very exciting if I can do it the week before Thanksgiving. Plus, it would then mean I lost all the weight I gained since our wedding, which would be a pretty incredible milestone.

My little weigh in book is almost full--just one week to go and I'll have filled it up. I find that as much a milestone as anything--it is a testament to my tenacity at WW, which is also not something I expected to continue doing regularly.

I am nervous about the holidays, but I am trying to plan for it. Next week, our meeting will focus on how to survive Thanksgiving. I definitely need to learn how to do that. And maybe how to learn to survive the entire month of December. I love, love, love baking for Christmas, and even though I plan to scale waaaaaaaaaaaaay back this year, it's still going to be hard not to dive into fresh baked cookies.

So, that's what's new from Kosior Central. Let's hope the trend continues!

Ain't it, though?

That evening my wedding band almost flew off my hand, the meaning hadn't yet hit me ... that my weight had dropped to below what it was in January of 2001. It felt wonderful.

Oh, and nekkidweight™ this morning was a new low: 241.8!

PS - I'm beyond happy for you and what you've done so far with WW. It's something for YOU and YOURSELF, and nobody can take that away from you or make you feel less worthy for THIS.

(word verification = "wedustur" A very wise lesson to those of us trying to drop poundage. If we slip, lapse or have a bad week ... well, we get back up and "wedustur" selves off. :-D

I can now fit my wedding band on my thumb, which I think is unbelievable! Michael and I were going to switch bands like you and Sera did, but my band is too big for him too :-) So I just wear it on a different finger. It's working for us.

Congrats on the new nekkidweight! :-) What a journey. Who knew back in February that we were all going to do this!?

Susan,
Way to go! That is great.

Keep up the good work.
