Middle of April?? Where has the time gone? Well I figured it was a good time to share some updates in my life
I am lifetime with Weight Watchers! I have been for about 5 weeks now.
It's so weird in so many ways. I am still struggling with my points in-so-much as I can't seem to get my daily total right and I keep losing. I KNOW it's annoying to hear someone is losing weight without trying! I get it.
I have only been losing .5 or .8 each week and am still within the Weight Watchers healthy weight range but I am working on NOT losing and staying the same. I was told this was the hardest part and it's true. It's hard to work out as hard as ever and not expect to see a loss on Fridays. I am still adding a point a week to try to stabilize myself but it's slow because you have to give your body some time t adjust to the new point amount.
Also it's the first time EVER that I have been told to 'NOT lose any weight'. It's almost ingrained in me that I am overweight and always will be.
It's also weird to not weigh in each week-I know I *can* but don't *have* to. I have been taking advantage of the 'courtesy' weigh-ins that Weight Watchers lets you do whilst I am still getting used to being lifetime.
I have to admit its also hard to know that once I weigh in, I dont *have* to for a month and the urge to go grab some Ben & Jerry's and sit in my car and eat it is there sometimes but so far I get my skinny coffee from Starbucks instead :-)
Aside from that, the only other news I have is my sweet 7 year old is now a sweet (usually!) 8 year old. It was a week of birthday celebrations and I am glad it's over for a while. I wish I could freeze time, especially where my son is concerned!
Here is a picture my husband took about 2 weeks ago and also a picture of my son.
