Weigh in results.

Drum roll Please............................... I lost.  2.2 lbs!!!  That's 5 lbs this month for me. Since Sept. it is 13.2 lbs. I was really hoping for more this week cause I worked so hard but I'll take it. Also that is a total for 2 weeks b/c I didn't weigh in last week. They talked in W/W today about not eating enough and how sometimes your body holds on to the calories cause it thinks its starving.   I usually don't use my 49 extra points throughout the week and just use about half of them on the weekend.  This week I'm gonna do a little experiment and use 5 extra points on top of my daily 29 each day which will still leave me 14 extra points to play with on the weekend.  Now I know that 2.2 isn't terrible but it was so much easier to lose weigh when I was in my 20s and 30s  I would have easily lost 4 to 5 lbs with all the work I put in these past 2 weeks.  Damn you menapause and slow metabolism!!!  But I'm still happy that the scale is still going in the right direction!!  Just a little slower than I hoped.

Quote for the day: 
"Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go".


  1. Kathy!! Congrats!!! You did great - 5 pounds for one month is about where you want to be!!

    Have you ever heard of the Wendie Plan? It's WW but shakes it up a bit by varying your points. I have had success with it in the past.

    Have a great day - and keep on smiling.

  5. Way to go! 2.2 is still a great job! Just think if you did that for a month you would lose almost 10lbs.
