Yea, I enjoyed my cheese steak..it tasted wonderful and was worth every one of those 40 points but I could never eat like this day in and day out and I am sooo happy that I feel that way. Eating the way I did today did not make me miss the "old days" one bit...it just reminded me of why I can never, ever, ever, every, EVER go back to my old habits and it motivated me even more to be completely 150% focused tomorrow and the rest of the week.
I'm not going back here...
|and that's my word.|
Onward and downward!!
In other news... I lost 1.6 this week and I'm down a total of 82.4lbs! Holla!! :D It feels wonderful...really, really, really wonderful. I am so close to goal I can taste it tastes 10,000x better than cheese steak!!
Update on my family:: My step dad is rockin' the program down 8.4 in two weeks! My mom is down 5.8 and my grandfather is down 3.6! I am so proud of all of them and I just love seeing them 1st thing Saturday mornings!
When my good friend Nicole reached her 100lbs mark I was just beginning my journey. She was featured in a magazine where she talked about how her fiance told her that he felt like he was with another woman and I remember crying my eyes out thinking about how crazy that must feel for Nicole and how I so wished I could feel that feeling. WELL....this morning I was getting ready to leave for my WW meeting and my honey said to me "Babe, you look like a completely different person!!" ....ya'll know I had to hold back the tears!!! I said "Well....thanks.....is that a good thing??" and he said "yess definitely". I love that he appreciates me for all that I am and all that I have to offer whether it comes with 250+ pounds or 170lbs.

OH..I can't believe I almost forgot to mention!!! Did you guys watch Dr. Oz on Monday??! I'm sure if you're a WW member you did. 1st of all: MY STEPHANIE (my WW leader) WAS ON THERE!!! andd....they cut her interview segment out! I was so super duper upset but she's so silly and totally made up for it today at our meeting. If you watched it - she was on the panel of 4 leaders in the beginning but she was the last one that they cut to commercial before they talked to her. Punks!! Anyway, if you don't already know, Dr. Oz is giving away a million dollars this year to someone who transforms their life. So get with it! Get on it! Sign up! Check it out here.
What they were SUPPOSED to ask Stephanie was "What made you join Weight Watchers?" and "What keeps you motivated to remain a Weight Watchers member?" and her answer to both was "Pain". She was in a wheel chair from terrible back pain when she joined and let me tell you....she's not in a wheel chair anymore!! You should see her jump around our meeting in her heels and all!! She is a true inspiration and real life proof that not only does weight watchers WORK it can be about way more than just looking better.
So my question to you is WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?? Whether you are a Weight Watchers member or you do another weight loss plan, what keeps you motivated to keep on pushing??

She will never experience the things I experienced being the "Fat Kid" and I can promise you that. It starts with me. I swear on my life that I will never go back to the picture I posted at the top because of this little girl right here. She deserves the world and that includes a healthy and active mother to run, jump, and play with for as long as God will allow my body to do so.
