I made it to 20!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOO

Yesterday, I signed back up for Weight Watchers and set my lifetime goal (10 more lbs). I stepped up onto the scale apprehensive about losing weight, but silly me: I lost almost 3 more lbs and am now 140!!!! I have made it to my 20 lbs loss mark, and now I only have 10 more to go to be a WW lifetime member and reach my personal goal. I really want to get to 120, but at 130 I will look healthy and strong, and feel great, and it will be easier to maintain. I feel healthy, and I feel pretty, and I just feel wonderfully today! Breakfast was amazing, waking up next to my hubby was really nice, and maybe the sun will follow suit, and come out and play for a little while.

Saturday's are fun REV Abs days..we usually have a kickboxing bend to the workout, which is fun, and energetic. I feel so good sweating, and really I just love getting my butt kicked.

I think people are starting to notice the change in my body too, which is a good feeling, as I have been receiving positive feedback from a lot of people. I feel great, and cannot wait to head back up to Beacon for my day off Sunday, to rest and regroup and possibly apple pick (if it does not rain).

The food is more manageable now, and I dont think that I will be going back to the huge meals that I used to eat. I like these small regular meals, and although it takes more planning, I will probably be snacking more like this when the program is finished.

Here is yesterdays food:

Lunch: Coconut Ginger Chicken with shitake mushrooms , snow peas and broccoli (double yum).
Turkey salad with chopped red onions, over fresh arugula greens

Spinach stuffed tilapia over a bed of escarole

and for breakfast today:
French toast with turkey bacon and sugar-free syrup ..YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

in a bit: Egg Salad with chopped celery.

Then I work out...come back to the apt and Duncan and I will take the pups home for some R&R. Have a fabulous weekend...

That's so awesome! Sheesh, the last time I weighed 140lbs I was in junior high, lol!

I'm down nearly 30lbs since I joined WW's a year ago last spring. I stopped going and I'm doing this on my own right now, but I may need to join back up to get those last 10-15lbs off. I think I need the accountability of a weekly weigh in. Keep up the good work.
