So, I didn't reach my goal of losing 2.8 this week or anything close to it. Instead I lost 0.8 but I am OKAY with that!! I decided to take time frames off of my goals. Weight loss is not a race, I firmly believe that, and I'm sticking by it! I lose it when I lose it. I had a really OP week, conquered Halloween with a bang, worked out 4 days, and guzzled water like there was no tomorrow so I am not measuring my success based on what that scale has to say about it!!
|This is me on my birthday last year! I'm half of that now!|
That's exactly what the meeting was about today, actually. Seeing the bigger picture. It was so awesome to hear how everyone else measured their success based on their bigger picture.
- One lady is diabetic and dropped 10 points on her blood sugar levels!
- Another lady said she has been a Weight Watcher for two years and she measures her success based on the fact that she is wearing the same clothes this year that she bought after she lost her weight last year.
- One woman said she measures her success based on the fact that she's just DOING IT! She said aside from her marriage, she has never been as committed to something for so long.
- One man, he is the sweetest man! He's 61 and he has been a Weight Watcher for 9 years! When I said I wasn't in a race to lose the weight, he told me that he has been doing this for 9 years slow and steady, focusing on building muscle as well as losing weight and that's just how he likes it.
So, I now I have TWO bday outfits! My friend gave me a dress that is so fly and looks so good on me, I can't even explain it lol. I was dancing around the house this morning in it. I'm so anxious to see everyone tonight! So many awesome people are coming out it's going to be a ridiculous amount of fun. Just praying that my back allows me to have the fun that I want to have.
My chiropractor joked about wanting to come out and party with me and I wish he was serious that way if I did hurt myself, he could give me a quick fix!! haha He told me to go have fun, anything I mess up he will fix on Tuesday lol
So tomorrow....or maybe Monday....(lol) I will have tons of pics for you guys!!
