The 13th night (August 23rd) I lost 1.6 lbs.
The 14th night (August 30th) I lost .6 lbs.
The 15th night (September 6th) I stayed the same…did not gain, did not lose.
The 16th night (September 13th) I lost 2.6 lbs.
Today (September 20th) I lost 1.4 lbs.
I hit my Lifetime Goal….and, actually, I came under my Lifetime Goal by a pound….(so I guess I should change my Lifetime Goal).
So, in 17 weeks, I lost 24.2 lbs. (On FB, I put 24.6, but I was wrong.)….
My 17-week pass was up today, so I joined again for 2 more months (they had a special going on, so I only paid for 1 month but got 1 free). I’ll have to “maintain” my weight for 6 weeks (without going over/under 2lbs) before I can become a Lifetime Member. Once I’m a Lifetime Member I don’t have to pay anymore and I can keep going to meetings/weigh-in.
I’m pretty excited. Especially since, for the last 3 1/2 weeks, I have not been running or doing Jazzercise because of my heel.
The receptionist at WW kept talking about me, telling everyone I was such a good example and a walking advertisement for WW! Brenda, our leader, even made me stand up and be recognized (and she told me to show everyone my skinny waist)! 🙂
So, there you have it. It can be done! Yes, it’s an investment, but it’s worth it. And, I really do think I can keep it up.
And, as I told everyone in my family, it’s a lifestyle change, not a diet!!
