Weigh in day

Good Morning!  Yesterday was my weigh in day.  I was having a super busy day at work so I had to really rush to get to my meeting.  Then of course there was extra traffic on the bridge that I normally take.  It never fails.  I'm not gonna lie it will be so nice to not have to go to meetings every Friday!  I ended up being 1.4 lbs over my goal (didn't have time to pee first so I'm sure that's why!  haha).  That's OK because I'm still within the 2 lbs that I need to be but I really have to work hard to be under for next week.  It's very stressful!!  I only have 2 more PAID weeks left of Weight Watchers!  I can't believe that I will soon be a Lifetime Member.  It's something I have dreamed about for years.  I looked ahead and it ends up that my day to become a Lifetime Member will be on April 6th which is also Good Friday.  Bummer because there won't be a meeting that day :-(  I think I will weigh in on the Wednesday that week then get my Lifetime the following Friday at my regular meeting time.  After that I only have to weigh in once per month and not be over 2 lbs of my goal weight.  I'm going to do this!  But I have to say after being on Maintenance for a few weeks now it's not OVER and it really just feels the same as losing does.  I guess that's what they mean when they say "it's a lifestyle not a diet".  I will be watching what I eat and exercising forever.  The alternative is to not do that, gain the weight back and be miserable and unhappy with my body / health.

Thursday night I took a Step class at the gym.  I had been wanting to try it for a long time and finally got brave enough.  It was so great!!  Lots of fun and I was literally dripping sweat by the end!  So, I am talking with the instructor after and telling her how much I liked the class, etc and she tells me "oh, it's not on the schedule at this time after the end of March".  Damn.  It will be at 5:00 on Monday.  I work every day from 8-5.  Oh well. I will find something else.  There are so many great classes at the gym I go to.  I just have to be brave enough to try them.

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'm going to Hunger Games tonight (I'm on book 3 love them!).  So excited.  Even though the name just cracks me up.  Isn't that really what weight loss is all about?

The maintenance is an interesting journey for sure. At first, it kind of seems like an ending. But you are so is kind of more of the same. I find I basically eat about the same way that I did on program when I was losing. The great thing about the WW points plus program though is that it never does feel like a diet anyway, so eating the same is not a hardship. Besides, if I were to go back to eating like I did before WW.....lordy mamma...I'd be back up in no time. No, this is my life now. I have indulgences occasionally, but that word is the key. I can't have them daily. I am so thrilled for you Kim, to be moving into this next phase. Great to have an accountability partner in the weight maintenance game!
