10% Achievement

Saturday, October 02, 2010

I am happy to report that I received my 10% award at Weight Watchers today. In all the number of times I have joined Weight Watchers I have never achieved that elusive 10%. They say that just losing 10% of your initial weight will lower your blood pressure, take some pressure off your joints and make your clothes fit soooooo much better. I am happy to report that the joints feel better as do my clothes. I actually wore a pair of jeans this week which have been hanging in the closet for sometime as they were too tight. Maybe it is time to try on some the other smaller clothes.

Actually I am going to wait for that one. It will be another celebration.

I am so proud of myself! I went grocery shopping today and thought that I might reward myself with something special. Something that I haven't had in a long time - like a cinnamon bun with lots of icing, or a bag of chips, or a chocolate bar, or some macadamia nut and white chocolate chunk cookies. BUT no! Remembering that food rewards are a bad idea, I bought instead some flowers for myself. How good was that!!!!!

    emoticon Losing 10% is a wonderful milestone and I am very excited for you. Getting into a smaller pair of genes is also. My genes are pretty lose but I can't quite zip up the smaller ones. When I can, I will celebrate too! Maybe not flowers...maybe a book, or new CD. That's the great thing. We can come up with other things besides food. Kudos to you!!! emoticon emoticon

    Flowers are an excellent choice. They have no calories and can provide pleasure for a week or two!!
