I traveled this week so I was unsure of how the scale would behave. Granted I traveled and did not change my normal routine, rather I have not flown in over a year so I was unsure if that would affect anything.
What do I mean about not changing my routine? I did not allow a weekend away get in the way of my life style. Remember I was most worried about this in the first place? I did not allow anything to stop me and it worked. Just as it has always worked and I am so glad I have made the changes I did. I woke up early every morning like I do when I am home and I went to workout. I stayed within my daily points plus values everyday and tracked everything I ate. I fought temptations left and right all around me and I won. It was not easy all the time but you know what? It was not all that hard either! This is my life style I have adapted over the past 16 months and I love it. I am happy, successful and I feel good. At the end of the day that is all that matters.
So when I stepped on the scale yesterday I felt I deserved to see the number before me:
Goal weight for my BMI and to be within life time goal at weight watchers is 150 pounds. Yes you see I am really really truly finally almost there!!! Like .2 away hehe!!!! Very exciting!
After giving birth to my daughter 20 months ago I weighed 272 pounds. My BMI was a 45.3. Now today it is a 25!!! I went from being morbidly obese to being healthy!!!! I can finally say I have reached a healthy weight for the first time in my adult life!!! Yes for about 14 years, half of my life I was over weight then obese after high school.... And now today I can finally feel confident to say I have over come obesity and become healthy.
Celebrations will commence soon when I get that life time membership card in my hands from Weight Watchers!!!!!!!
I have been working towards this day for 15 months I walked into my first weight watchers meeting on Feb. 24th 2010 and began making small changes over time that have led to a complete life style make over and healthy living :)
