First the Big News–Weight Loss Wednesday

First the big news–I lost .8 pounds this week for a total of 14.2 lbs lost which put me over the goal of 10% of my starting body weight lost.

This has been the week of 8s.  I bought and wore a pair of size 8 jeans for the first time in 8 years, I lost .8 pounds and my friend Alicia lost 2.8 pounds.  I love fun coincidences like that!

I think one of the big reasons I have made it this far is how my snacking has changed.  Snacks used to be whatever fun thing I could find to eat.  Now they are different–carrots, fruit, natural applesauce, mini peppers, kiwi, light kettle corn, pop chips.

And I snack a lot.  It takes lots of munching to get me through the day.  Bless the scientists of weight watchers for making all fruit and most veggies “free” foods.  It makes eating this way, so much easier and I think healthier.  As a doctor friend of mine said, “I’ve never understood diets that restrict fruits and veggies.”

Next goal–prebaby weight.  Yup,  it’s amazing that I still have weight to lose after Patrice, but I do.  I am a very slow loser while nursing.  I am not one of those women that see the weight just fall off.  Sigh.  Three more pounds to go…then on to wedding weight…4 more pounds…and then within my normal range…6 pounds…

Wow, writing that out is motivating to make better choices.  Snacking my way there of course!

Have to work on this…
