for the past few weeks now, i have been sticking to my weight watcher’s POINTs in hopes of losing the 5 pounds that i gained back in august. i wasn’t “obsessed” with losing the 5 pounds, i was only wanting to lose it so that i could be back to my healthy weight and fit better in my clothes…it’s amazing how 5 pounds can make such a difference in how things fit.
well, much to my delight, i not only lost the 5 pounds, BUT i actually lost 6 pounds!!!!
so all last week, my pants were a bit loose and i had to constantly pull them up. i told myself that there’s no way i could’ve gone down a whole pants size…or could i?????
well, i just happened to be at kohls today so i decided to try on a pair of levis (same style i always buy so that i’d know they were true to size) in a size down. and guess what????????? they fit!!!!! i couldn’t believe it. i checked the tag. i checked the tag again. sure enough, they were a size down from what i’ve been wearing for the past year!! yippee!!!!
my weight loss has been at a stand still for a few months now, so i’m not sure why i’m able to lose again now (probably those darned hormones again!) but i’m glad! when i lost all that weight last fall, i still had 5 more pounds that i had wanted to lose, but couldn’t. maybe, just maybe, i will be able to lose that now.
i do want to say however, that i am totally fine with where my weight is right now and i am not at all obsessed with losing more. i am still choosing to eat healthy wether i lose the weight or not, because i find that when i’m eating within my POINTs (a.k.a calorie range) i feel so much better physically; probably because i’m making healthier food choices in order to stay within my POINTs.
i do need to get on the band wagon though and work on toning these still lax abs of mine that way this tummy with not be protruding anymore and i will finally have a strong core. if any of you reading of this have found certain ab exercises to be helpful to you, i’d LOVE to hear about them!!!
