Watch it, sucka...
As I mentioned back in January, I've been working on whittling my waist whilst still enjoying food. I'm now 20 lbs lighter than I was when I started late last fall. It's nice to have found my stride (and the slacks in the back of my closet that I can again fit). I keep flexibility in my diet (if I want the cookie, I eat the stupid cookie... but I don't eat 8 of 'em) but also keep an eye on my weight and body fat percentage.
I want to lose about 15 more pounds, still keeping my curves. But I have noticed that I have hit a plateau. Even with the salads, the soup, the glasses of water, the... You get the picture. In the past, I've done low-carb (lost weight, but who can pass up bread for the rest of their life?). I've done low-fat (who can pass up bread AND butter for the rest of their life?). For me? Moderation (read: eating whatever I want without overdoing it) is best.
So, I'm trying something that's old but new to me: Weight Watchers. My first meeting is at 11:00 a.m. today. I'm a little nervous because I have this irrational fear that the group leader is going to have a bullhorn and as soon as I step on the scale, he/she will announce my weight to the world and there will be a collective gasp... Dramatic? I'm aware.
But I'm going anyway, phobia be damned. I can use the inspiration, meal ideas and the accountability. And perhaps the change of pace will help me fly past the three numbers that I keep seeing when I step on the scale... I'll let you know how it goes. Anyone else out there on a mission to lose? We can do it together!
