Monthly Weigh-In: Month Four

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

Congrats on the weightloss!

PS I should be at miles 8, 12-13, 17-18, 23-24 of the course at Eugene. Since you're running the half the courses differ after mile 10 I think so if I see you it'll be at mile 8. I'll have BIG NEON signs and I'll be wearing my pink nike hat. Good LUCK
