I just wanna pat myself on the back.

Today is my weigh-in day so I stripped down this morning and hopped on the scale to see what the "damage" was.

I'm down 1.5 lbs!!

For a total now of 2.5 lbs (cuz I lost one pound the previous week when I was only half-heartedly doing weight watchers).

It's a small number, I know (and like one of my friends pointed out, bursting my happy bubble, "That's great...although it's probably just water weight." WHATEV) but it's still 2.5 lbs GONE, that I hope to never see again. And I'm of the weight watchers mind-set that "slow and steady" wins the race. At least for me, anyway. I can't speak for anyone else. I definitely am a slow and steady loser (heh).

Big D's company Christmas party is coming up December 13th (the day after my birthday!!) so I want to look good for that. I would love to be down at least 5-8 lbs by then (I'm not putting any insane amounts of pressure on myself though cuz that is where I get all screwy and then end up sabotaging myself).

So, 5-8 lbs. by my birthday...that's my mini-goal, I guess you could say. Wish me luck!

Keep it up! I'm sure you'll lose the rest before the party.

Luck, luck, luck!!!!
I think that is great, and I TOTALLY agree on taking it slow. I am the same way. I lost 30 lbs over a year, and it has been easier to keep off!
Very proud of you girl..you should be too!!!
Good luck on your mini goal!!

You go girl, keep it up! We've been trying to start exercising again. So far so good, we'll see how long it lasts, LOL! Hey guess what I just found out this afternoon that I got the job at the nursing home. I go tomorrow to fill out paperwork. I'm excited.

Congrats on the weight loss and hoping you get me back in the mood to get back on track! (Not water weight - and slow and steady does win the race in this case.)

Bravo on the 2.5 pounds! Mr. C's work Christmas party is on December 13th too. It's at a casino this year. Gambling with someone else's money is something I can definitely handle!

Yay, good luck April! I hope you lose it and I don't catch it - cuz I seriously need another 2.5 lbs like I need a hole in my head. Keep it up!

I like the decorating! I've been thinking about doing a christmas page, but haven't had the time and was worried it was too soon.... Oh well guess I will do it soon....Of course after I'm done reading!!

Congrats! And best of luck. I'm going to call Curves back today. Finally. Seriously. I need to get in shape and shed these extra pounds.

Congratulations!! 5-8 lbs is real doable for ya. Look on the bright side. People gain an average of 5-10 pounds over the holidays...you're giving yourself back a holiday. :)
