Weight Watchers Weekly's topic last week was "What's your why?". My health started out to be my "why". But now! Now, I my "why" is how I feel and look. My why is how much happier I am and how happy my hubby is. My why is be able to walk anywhere, anytime when I really thought that I was heading towards a crippling life. And, if I am going to be really honest, my why is that I am addicted to shopping (The Loft, anyone?) because dammit, I look good!
My friends and family are simply The Best. SO encouraging, so complimentary and understanding. I need my weekly meetings and my BFF to help me along. I could never do this without them. You know the saying "it takes a village to raise a child"? Well, I think it takes a village to succeed in weight loss.
I celebrated a scale victory. Even after being in San Francisco and not attending 2 meetings, I was down 1.8. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous that I would be up. Being back on track and a normal schedule feels good.
I have some more exciting social events coming up. A big book club meeting at my favorite authors home, a country show, a family wedding and another trip. All of which will have food and alcohol. All challenging but I am confident that I got this.
So...How do you like me now?
