I weighed in this evening and I lost 4.2 pounds this week! Whoa. I'm not sure how I'm doing bigger numbers like that after four months in the WW program, but I'm happy to have them! On average I'm losing just over two pounds a week and WW recommends losing 1-2 a week for a healthy weight loss. I'm close, so I'm good. If I was consistently losing over 4 pounds every week, then I would need to modify things to slow it down. With that 4.2 pound loss this week, I'm only 0.2 from my next goal of being in the next decade of weight by Labor Day! I have one week to lose 0.2 and I'm pretty sure I can do that.

My August total loss is 8.2 pounds and my overall loss is now 41.8 pounds! My measurements are:
Hips: -4.7 inches
Thighs: -4 inches
Waist: -7 inches
Bust: -3 inches
Arms: -3 inches

Here is a quick slide show of myself when I started WW and today.

I posted a slide show of myself at my starting weight, -20, -30, and now -40 pounds on the Progress Pictures page at the top, too, so go check that out. It is amazing to me how much of a difference 10 pounds can make!

My WW partner had a great first week! I'm not going to post about them every week, but I do think that -4.6 pounds in the first week is awesome and something to be celebrated!!! So proud of you!

Wish me luck this next week to meet my next goal and get into that next decade of weight! I'm excited to be there!
