Someone posted this on the Weight Watchers message boards yesterday:
So, I filled it out to see what it would tell me. The result was: 113.6 lb.
My reaction? Happy weight my ass. Nothing about that number is making me happy.
I know I'm missing the point here. The idea is to present a reasonable goal weight. Honestly, that probably is reasonable. That is very likely a good weight for someone like me - 5 feet tall, medium build. If I woke up tomorrow morning weighing 114 pounds, I'd be over the moon.
No, my reaction stems from the fact that it seems so impossible.
Obviously it's not impossible. Other people do it.
Deep down, I'm not sure I believe I can do it. I don't know whether belief is necessary in order to achieve weight loss. This is something I have pondered. Believe it or no, I will keep trying. Over and over.
So, that is this week's reason to lose weight: I want to get to my happy weight. 'Cause who doesn't want to be happy?
How I did yesterday
It was another successful day. I followed my meal plan. I did have a slice of bread with my chili, but I knew I would have something, just wasn't sure what. Still within my points for the day. I drank 2L of water. I did a strength workout plus a short cardio workout.
So much for the clear sidewalks and new-shoe-wearing. It was starting to snow when we left work last night and it snowed all night. Now it looks like we're getting freezing rain. So back to winter boots for me.
