10% Goal!

Written by klbente (kristi) on 4/15/2012 9:35 AM | COMMENTS (14)

I made it! I hit that 10% goal today! There's 30 pounds I'll never see again. OK, technically it's 29.9 pounds.... *giggles* My body has settled down into the one pound a week range. I'm happy with that. It soothes my lizard brain screeching about a "bag of wrinkled skin with no muscle." I have to confess that I was worried because I didn't get a whole lot of APs this week because of my blasted knee.

This week, I did much better at eating all my DPs. I didn't quite make it every day, but I was a lot closer than I have been. On the days I didn't make it, I was only 1 or 2 points shy as opposed to 5 or 6 like I had been.

Here's a funny. One night last week hubby didn't feel up to cooking dinner. So, I had some soup when I got home. Even that left me with 15 points. Grrrrrrrr. A couple of hours later I was hungry again and prowling the pantry. My husband cooks LARGE batches of food and freezes dinner portions for just such days. He suggested that I have some penne and meat sauce he'd put up. So I took it out, calculated the points and...holy moly...it was a 16 point meal. One point over? No problem. OM NOM NOM! The problem was that it was a LOT of food for me and I ate past my full point. Not to mention, I think it had sleep potion in it. I ended up crawling into bed well before my normal bedtime.

I weigh every day. Yes, I know that the powers that be don't like that but if I don't, I have all kinds of silly anxieties. The next morning after eating that massive amount of pasta and sauce I have to admit that I was looking at the scale with a jaundiced eye. I was sure that I'd gained at least 5 pounds overnight. The scale showed a half pound loss. Huh? OK, I don't get it but I'll take it!

Onward and downward!

    It's important to use ALL your DP's and eat your weeklies too...don't forget WW included those in your program. I never ate my WP, and now that I am getting lower, I am HUNGRY. I have actually added them into my day and I am losing at a faster rate now. It works. Congrats on making 10%!! SO EXCITING!!

    BIG HIGH FIVE!! I think losing slow is better for you and allows you to lose while learning how to keep your meals something you can live with in the long term. Great job, especially w/that bum knee!

    You did great! It is hard to eat too soon before bed, I've done it! But you had good, healthy food and it showed on the scale.
