to give up now would be such a pity.
3.6 lbs lost on the first week of the Plan. i celebrated with a 6″ subway club, diet squirt, and 2.5 cinnamon rolls — and still didn’t break the point budget! there are two ladies in my “class” who have been doing WW for 6 months and have each lost 45 lbs. i want that.
i promise, i’m not going to turn this blog into a catalog of my weight loss adventures, but by the same token, this is an adventure. barring that anomaly during my high school years, i’ve always been at least a 14/16, and since graduation that’s become a 16/18…and then more solidly a 18…and it stops now. i’ll try not to bore you folks with points this and meetings that, but please bear with me as i explore this uncharted ground. it’s not just about the numbers going down — if i am to truly become a thinner me, i suspect i will have to drag out, dust off, and throw away some well-worn mentalities that have been lurking at the back of my psyche.
i love how supportive mikey has been and is being. we went shopping yesterday armed with my little slidey calculator, and it was prolly pretty funny to see us hunkered down in the soup aisle, comparing different brands of ramen noodle. for the record, there’s a significant difference, and the low-cal-low-sodium version is the way to go. the others…yeesh. he isn’t counting points himself, but he’s very aware of and conscientious about mine. he doesn’t tempt me to eat more or worse things, and he seems genuinely interested in what i’m learning. i feel so lucky to have this amazing man in my life.
