Starts with a one!

I’ll forever be referring to the last five or six days as Hell Week, only without the hot SEAL guys. It simply sucked. But this morning, this is what I saw on the scale:

Yes, for the first time in at least a decade, my weight starts with a one! Barely, at 199.8, but I’ll take it. Even though I only moved one stone from the “To Lose” jar to the “Lost” jar, it’s a pretty profound milestone for me. … Read More »

An update and run

Things are hectic this morning, but I jumped on the scale and saw 201. That’s two pounds this week and I absolutely believe I’ll see 199 next Friday. I’ll try to take a picture of the milestone (for me) number, unless it’s so close holding my phone tips me back up. Then I won’t. :lol:

Fell in the slacker rut

I’ve been slacking a bit on the tracking of points, which is kind of the core of WW. I’m good during the day, but dinner…it can be hard to figure out those points and I’m tired and I don’t wanna. Of course, the downside is that I stepped on the scale this morning and there was no change. I’ll try to be happy I didn’t gain any and be more diligent in my tracking.
