When I woke up this morning, I had a great feeling about stepping on the scale. I arrived at my Weight Watcher’s meeting to find the building empty.
Then I remembered that the meeting relocated due to renovations. But I couldn’t remember where. Thankfully, my trusty Weight Watchers app pointed me to the temporary place. Come hell or high water, I was stepping on that scale today!
I arrived with a few minutes to spare. I stepped on the scale and experienced my second shock that morning. I knew I’d lost some weight, maybe a couple of pounds. Ha! I dropped nearly 8 lbs. this week. I did a little happy dance as I stepped off the scale.
After 4 months of battling this plateau – bouncing between 252 – 255 lbs – I finally broke through the 250 lbs. barrier. I feel awesome.
When I started this little journey, I set a goal of losing 185 lbs. I knew I needed to break my weight loss into smaller chunks so as not to feel overwhelmed. I settled on 5% increments. So when I started, 5% of my total body weight was 15 lbs…10% equaled 30 lbs total, and so on – very doable chunks.
Since January, I set my sights on hitting 250 lbs. The last time I weighed 250 was my wedding more than 10 years ago. So 250 a milestone? Oh, a big one.
I’ve finally crossed the my weight loss Rubicon!
My total weight loss is now 78 lbs. I am 4 lbs. shy of losing 25% of my body weight.
Well, if 250 lbs. is my Rubicon, then hitting 200 lbs. is my white whale (just without the personal destruction).
