Saturday is my weigh-in day and riding the wave of all the NSVs going into Weight Watchers, I was pretty confident. I told Jason that I thought it was going to be about 3 pounds this week. I was off by a pound. I lost 2 pounds this last week. That makes me feel pretty good. Plus, it puts me at almost 4 pounds since the beginning of the year. I think that’s a pretty good start. I’m not going to think about how far I have to go because it gets overwhelming, but I can already see some changes in how my clothes feel. Last night, I put on jeans since I had my hysterectomy on Halloween and they fit with a little bit of room. Not enough to go down to the next size and be able to breathe comfortably, but it still feels good.
This is the best I have done on Weight Watchers in a long time. I don’t just mean the weight loss part of it. I mean the actually following program and feeling good about the choices I’m making and actually doing what I need to do to achieve my goals. I just feel good about it. This is the time for me.
This week I also made a decision about work that is going to be good for me emotionally. I don’t want to say a whole lot about it because I’ve known too many people who have been fired for things they’ve said on blogs or other social media. Let’s just say that there will be a lot less responsibility for me and more of what I love about my job. I’ve got the support of the people around me at work that matter the most to me, so it’s for the best, I think.
