Holy moly! What a crazy loss this week! And I can’t tell you that I did anything especially wonderful. In fact, I ended up not doing any activity two days this week (and usually it’s only one day off for my “rest” day), but I still managed to get 37 activity points for the week. After going over my weekly and all 43 of my activity points the week prior and still pulling out a loss, I guess having 8 weekly points left over this week worked out! And I even went out and had french fries and drinks on Tuesday night, so I was kinda shocked at such a good weigh in the next morning!
So wow. I’ve lost over 65 lbs now. Still seems unbelievable. I went through all the clothes in my closets this past weekend and tried everything on (and boy did that take a long time!), but I got rid of so much because everything was so big on me! I even kept a few things that were big but that I could still get away with. But some, I had to force myself to get rid of because why should I be wearing clothes that are too big for me! I need to be showing it off, right?!? No more hiding behind my big ol’ baggy clothes! I mean, I went shopping recently at my fav stores (Kohl’s and New York & Company), and I was in shock because I was putting on small shirts and size 6 pants and sometimes they were too baggy! I bought size 4 shorts! I don’t need to be walking around in those size 10 pants anymore!
Now you may recall my mentioning that my weight goal is sort of up in the air. I wanted to listen to my body and see where it wants to be. I thought maybe my body was going to keep me around 140, and then bam, here I am at 135! I set my goal at 125, although at just over 200 lbs, I knew that was quite lofty! However, now that I am 10 lbs away and can still see fat on my belly, I figure why would I stop now… why would I give up? Plenty of people say I don’t need to lose any more, but my body fat percentage is still not in a “normal” range even though my weight is, and I’d really like to work on that. I don’t know if 125 is attainable or moreover, maintainable, but I am sure as hell going to try. Especially because I know the older I get, the harder it continues to get with that metabolism going all crazy with age! I sort of want to have “padding” (no pun intended!) so I can stay within the healthy weight range when I most likely gain weight as I get older! We’ll see though. I still don’t have my heart set on it, but I am definitely still not adding points back into my diet for maintenance just yet. And it may be that I don’t get there for a while too. That’s okay too.

And if you’re wondering, it’s not actually week 30 on Weight Watchers, it’s just week 30 of giving weekly updates since re-committing myself to the program.
