So, how can this be happening? Seriously. I am changing!!! I mean, I thought for sure that after losing 4.2 lbs last week, there would be no movement on the scale this week. I was so wrong! I lost 1.6 lbs this week! And I certainly wasn’t perfect all week! Well, when I say that, I mean I still had weekly PointsPlus left (I used 36 out of 49), but I didn’t make the healthiest choices. I guess that is the perfectionist in me talking. If I think realistically, no matter what, I am eating better overall then I have in years… maybe even ever!!!… then I have to be okay with that! Life is fleeting, and I have to enjoy moments of it and not be perfect, right? I just think I am finally learning that it feels better to be healthier and that I can just have those splurges here and there, instead of all the time! And it’s weird, I find myself actually enjoying vegetables sometimes, and ones I never thought I would! I mean I am totally obsessed with brussels sprouts and watercress right now! And I find myself upping my activity… Whaaa?!??! Me, who hates working out?!?! Well, I still kind of hate a lot of it, but I talk back to myself and say, things like, “does it really hurt that bad?” and “you can do it, just one more minute” and then I end up doing two more minutes, or like Bob says on the Biggest Loser, “You’re alright.” I ran (a.k.a. jogged if you are a runner) for 4 minutes in a row, plus 3 more minutes spread apart throughout my walk on the treadmill tonight! I know, that doesn’t sound like a lot, but that is like a freaking 5k in my world! So yeah, I am freaking changing! Now if I could only change how many hours there are in the day! Then I could get some more blog posts done, call more of my friends, and get the 8 hours of sleep I am supposed to be getting! That being said… laptop will promptly be turned off once I hit “Publish,” which may allow me to possibly get at least 7 hours of sleep tonight! (Friends and blog will just have to wait a little longer!)

And if you’re wonder, it’s not actually week 9 on Weight Watchers, it’s just week 9 of giving weekly updates since re-committing myself to the program.
