Perty by Thirty -- Week 20

Well, it's week 20 and I finally jumped the big hurdle...the 50 pound mark. This week I lost 5.6 pounds bringing me up to a total 52 pounds lost! I have been flirting with the 50 pound mark for several weeks now and I finally overcame it! Yippee!

I received another magnet, this one with a 50! It sits proudly on my refrigerator reminding me to keep it up.

Since yesterday was a holiday my regular Weight Watcher meeting was canceled. A friend and I went to another meeting in town today. I am very glad I did. The weight loss this week helped to motivate me to keep going. I was starting to get a little discouraged at my attempts to hit the 50 pound mark. However, going to the store and purchasing clothing that was 3 sizes smaller was rather motivating as well.

This week moved me to being 1/3rd of the way to my 150 pound loss by my 30th birthday, July 9, 2010. According to the Weight Watchers healthy weights I will need to actually lose 163 pounds to met my lifetime goal (when I can come to WW without paying). In my head, my goal is 163 pounds, but if I even get close I'll be happy!

Now I'm off to enjoy my success and try not to sabotage myself this week!

Perty by Thirty -- Week 19

Well, it was the 4 week mark. That being said, I gained weight. But it was only .8 pound. Not too bad.

I do have to admit I was disappointed. Yes, I anticipate a weight gain every four weeks. It's the pleasure of being a woman. However, I really wanted to do well this week just to prove it wrong. Plus, I gained a huge 4.8 pounds two weeks ago which has nothing to do with hormones, but my desire to eat lots of food that was really bad for me.

I guess I can't complain too much. I have lost 46.4 pounds in 19 weeks. Not too shabby. I just hope I can hit that 50 pound loss soon. I've been flirting with it for 4 weeks now and I can see it taunting me. I just hope this holiday weekend doesn't ruin me.

I don't have a WW meeting next Monday night so I probably won't post my weight loss because I won't know what it is. However, I am going to try to attend a meeting later in the week, so I'll keep you all updated.

Perty by Thirty Week 18

I almost made up for the 4.8 pound weight gain last week by losing 4.4 pounds this week.

This brings me to a 47.2 pound weight loss over the last 18 weeks.

Perty by Thirty -- Week 17

Well, I did it again. I gained weight. A lot of weight. And I have no excuses this time. I just ate bad. A lot.

That being said, I'll confess that I gained 4.8 pounds this week. ACK!!!!! It's horrid.

I am committed to turning it around this week. I got the eating bad out of my system and now it's time to eat good.

Plus, I felt horrible after I over ate. My stomach cramped. I had pains, not like the food not settling pains, but like muscle pulled pains. I think my stomach is not used to the huge amounts of bad food I ate.

So it's time to regroup. Get it back together and lose again.
