In my last post I asked how much weight each of you had lost, and when I added the numbers up I found that we’ve lost over 3,000 pounds! Adding the responses I received on twitter, we’ve lost over 3,500 pounds! Am I the only one who finds that mind-blowing? The nation is full of people who wish they could lose weight; the blogosphere is full of people who are doing it.
In other news, today is weigh-in day. I know that I should see a loss this week because I’ve tracked my caloric intake and worked out really hard. I’ve also heard that I look smaller three times this week! But I don’t feel thinner so I’m curious about what I’ll see on the scale this afternoon.
Counting calories is going well. I’ve adjusted pretty quickly. I’ve been losing slowly and steadily since the beginning of the year, but I miss the tips, the friendship and the support that comes from weekly meetings so regardless of the scale’s numbers, I plan to return to Weight Watchers next week.
I plan to continue counting calories for now though I realize that being around people who count points will likely cause me to want to count points again, but I’ll cross that bridge later. After all, the method isn’t nearly as important as consistency with one method.
I just want to see the numbers continue to move down. I need it, and this week, I deserve it.
