Today was another weigh-in.

I didn't know what to expect at weigh-in this morning.  It's getting colder her in NE Ohio, so I ended up wearing my long pants, instead of my think capris.  My thought was that this would probably make me show a gain.  Changing the clothes you wear for the season is a scary thing when you are weighing in.  When I stepped on the scale at my meeting I was down another .2 this week.  That make a total of 52.8 pounds lost so far.  My leader asked if I wanted to change my goal.  She said I didn't have to, but we knew that 145 was no longer a realistic goal for me.  I told her I wasn't sure what I wanted it to be and that I would have to think hard this week about that.  I am at 133.8 now.  Am I being unfair to myself to make it 140 and still have such a big gap from my goal and actual weight?  I don't know.  I don't want to make it too low and then have to worry about it every week.  I know that I only have to really worry about it on the first weigh-in of the month since that is the only on that really counts for my lifetime status.  The holidays are just around the corner and even though I don't plan on going crazy with the eating it would be nice to not have to watch what I eat so closely.  I guess I'm going to see what happens this week and see what the scale says next week.  Maybe I'll be really brave and say my new goal will be 135.

This week's Weight Watchers meeting was about setting goals.  There is 8 weeks until Thanksgiving and if you lose just 1/2 pound each week you would be 16 pounds smaller when you sit down at the Thanksgiving dinner table.  1/2 pound is very doable.  I'm going to try and do this challenge and see how much smaller I can get in 8 weeks.  I don't think I will be able to lose a 1/2 pound each week, but as long as I'm losing something each week I will be happy.  Even .2 would put me down another 1.6 pounds and I would weight at 132.2  That would be 2.4 from my new all time goal of 129.8  Do you think I could actually get into the 120s by the new year?  That would be my anniversary of getting to goal again. OMG, I just might make it.  I sure am going to try.

Next week will be measurement time again.  I can really see a difference now when I look in the mirror.  I'm still working on my waistline (muffin top) but it is a lot smaller than it was.
