Weigh In

I'm down 1.8 pounds.

And I have to say, some small part of me was disappointed. 

I kind of expected a bigger loss and I realized that this is one reason that I continue to be heavier than I like -- I'm an instant gratification kind of gal.

I want what I want, when I want it.


Life doesn't always make this possible, and I realize that many things worth having aren't going to come easy. I need to have patience. With the process. With myself.

I need to reframe the loss into more of a positive. The scale moved down. I am continuing on the journey. It was a good week. I wasn't hungry and I really like the new Weight Watches Points system.

That isn't to say that I didn't have cravings -- because I did. And I was able to indulge -- I had a piece of cake, ate out twice and even had a little candy. And I still lost.

And I think that's how I need to think about this -- that it will take however long it takes -- and that it may take a long time, but it's going to be worth it.

SILLY, that's ALMOST 2 pounds.
you are a rockstar.
Is there something you needed to be skinny for? You've got nothin' but time! 1-2 pounds a week is perfecto!

You can do it, Denise!

Great job! I have the same problem with instant gratification... maybe that is why chocolate ice cream is such a good friend of mine.
P.S. I did Vangie's exercise class this morning and she killed me. But I'll go back again.

Keep at it, Denise!! It took me about 5 months to loose 10 kilos last year, and they're still gone! And although I know I would love to loose 15 more, I'm quite content just maintaing last year's loss right now. I even did a page to remind of that, actually:
