So today was my 6th weigh in at Weight Watchers. This week I lost 2.2 pounds. I was so happy. Last week I was only down .6 and I was a little disappointed. But after chatting with a friend I realized that .6 lbs is about what 2 sticks of butter weigh. Everyone can stand to lose 2 sticks of butter -- I didn't want that butter anyway :)
So far my total loss is 13.8 pounds. Earlier this week I was at the gym and I was using a 6lb medicine ball as part of my workout and it I was thinking how heavy that ball was. It hit me that I have lost more than 2 of those balls! It really helps put things in perspective when you pick something up and realize how much weight we are carrying around.
My goal for this coming week is to lose at least 1.2 so I can reach my first 15 lb loss! It will be hard because of Halloween - but I know that I can do it! While eating a piece of candy would make me happy for a minute - it's not worth not reaching my overall goal.
Halloween is the first official food holiday of the season and I feel that if I can get through this first hurdle I will have the confidence to get over the next too!
Wish me luck and come back next week to see how I did!
