This is shaping up to be a great week. I finally, finally, finally reached my 10% weight loss goal at Weight Watchers this week. Actually, I not only met it but I exceeded it by another two pounds. For all the many times I have joined Weight Watchers I have always wanted to hit the elusive 10% goal that they have you shoot for and have never got there before now. I received my 10% key chain and I am going to use it with pride.
When the meeting leader asked me what was working for me I didn't have a really great answer. I guess it all boils down to a lifestyle change. When I have done the program in the past I tried to figure out how many cheeseburgers, fries and cookies I could cram into my daily points allowance. Needless to say, I was frequently hungry and it didn't work. This time around I have really embraced healthy eating and I have to say I like it better than the constant parade of junk food I used to eat. Whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and even the green smoothies have become my natural go-to foods now. Don't get me wrong, I still want a good pizza or piece of cake on occasion. I just know that I don't want or need that every day or even every week.
As Mr. Niehaus would say, here are the happy totals.
Starting Weight (12/29/09): 185.00
Current Weight (04/28/10): 165.00
Pounds Lost: 20.00
