Well, the results are in and over the last three weeks I have lost . . . drumroll please . . . 4.2 pounds!!! Good-bye 150s, hello 140s!! My current weight is 148.2 pounds. (Note: I cannot handle even simple math problems early in the morning. My weight three weeks ago was 152.4, and my current weight it 147.2, a loss of 4.2, not 5.2 pounds. Still impressive, but not as much as the original calculation I put up this morning.
It’s almost hard for me to believe that I lost weight over our vacation, but apparently something kicked in and the pounds started coming off again. We all ate well while we were in Hawaii, lots of yummy fresh fruit, grilled fish, and local vegetables, but we also enjoyed several local snacks like water-roasted macadamia nuts (unbelievable), locally-made granola (wonderful), and other goodies. My favorite snack was a frostie: frozen bananas, or bananas and papaya, pushed through a juicer; it was like eating ice cream except that it was pure fruit. I want to go back just for those alone!
I’m also getting plenty of exercise these days. I’m walking 90 minutes every day, with weights, and believe that’s finally making a difference as well.
I’m going to continue to stick with the Weight Watchers eating plan, but next week will be my last meeting for a while. I will be following the plan online only for a few months in order to put more income toward debt repayment. Also, I’ve also given up my evening glass of wine for the time being, except for Friday and Saturday evenings. It was a ritual I enjoyed, but I’ll both save points and money by only indulging twice a week.
Here’s to reaching my goal weight in 2013!
