My BMI is 24.6 today. My weight has been steadily dropping the past several days. On Friday (first morning weigh-in after Cancun) I weighed 157.0. Now, 5 days later, I weigh 152.4. TOM is just ending so that's part of it. Also now I'm wondering if maybe Friday was a temporary spike up due to the junk I ate on the plane (muffin, cheeseburger, chocolate) but my "real" weight was lower than that even earlier.
Anyway, feeling as good as ever. I LOVE how nice everyone is on this website. Like yesterday I happened to show some interest in a bean soup recipe on a WW team posting, and soon afterwards I had a recipe for bean soup in my sparkmail inbox!!! I actually made the recipe and had some for dinner last night, breakfast today, and will have more for dinner tonight. (I love how much longer food lasts now that I am eating correct portion sizes. It saves a lot of money!) This recipe is really nutritious and satisfying, and it's a GREAT way to use all those dry beans I bought.
If I have any worries right now, it's that I'm spending way too much time on SP and am not that interested in my job right now. It's not like I'm slacking on my job, but just not as passionate because I'm passionate about my weightloss instead.
Anyway, it's amazing how powerful I feel. I am soooo close to my lowest adult weight ever - 147 - just 5 pounds to go! But when I weighed 147 I was barely eating and knew I was not living a lifestyle I could maintain. NOW, however, I know I can reach that and beyond on a healthy lifestyle. The difference is knowing how many calories/points/nutrients I am eating per day. I will never go too high OR too low. I would love to whittle my weight down to the 130s. It could take a year...but who cares. While I wait to get there, I'll still be thin!
