|32.6 pounds lighter thanks to Weight Watchers!|
Imagine my surprise when I stepped on that scale and discovered that I'd lost 2 pounds!
I should have expected it from another perspective, however. Yesterday I pulled out a dusty box of jeans that my oldest daughter had given me after losing weight a while back after her divorce. At the time, I remember looking through her 'too big' jeans, and thinking, "Right...I'll never fit into those jeans!" I couldn't even get them past my thighs!
Recently she asked me if I had tried on her old jeans yet, which I hadn't. So yesterday I got them out, still doubting they'd fit....but they did! One by one I held up a pair and thought, no way.....but got them over my thighs, zipped them up and admired how they fit on my slimmer body in the mirror.
A lower number on the scale is very encouraging, but fitting into those jeans did wonders for my resolve! My weight today was only 1/2 pound from goal, but I'm not done. I lowered it another 5 pounds, and when I hit that number, I will probably lower it again.
I'm so happy! I had decided that this time I would be in no hurry to lose those unhealthy pounds but that once I did, I wanted to KEEP THEM OFF! I hoped that Weight Watchers would be the answer and I'm feeling hopeful it is! I've developed new habits and realize I can now stay in control, even during special situations.
Thank you Weight Watchers!
