I had a short-term goal of losing 65 pounds before January 1st, 2011. Tonight, at my Weight Watchers meeting, I hit 65 and surpassed it by two... 
I'm down 67 pounds!
I'm thrilled with that result. Tracking everything I eat, counting PointsPlus and allowing myself to indulge in a few Christmas treats worked and I lost 2.8 this week. The new PointsPlus program works and I'm so happy with it! I'm so pleased with myself that I wasn't afraid to trust Weight Watchers with a new program and that I jumped into it with both feet. I am now more than half-way to my ultimate goal weight. I'm not exactly sure what that number will be, but I know that I'm now more than half-way there! What a year this has been. Early in the year I read someone's quote on Facebook saying "A year from now you'll with you had started today." I wish I could remember which friend of mine posted that, I would hug them today! I wrote it down and thought about it a lot for a few months and then finally joined WW the last week of April. Thirty-four weeks later I've lost 67 pounds!

I wish you all a very merry Christmas! I hope that you're able to have friends and family with you, a magical moment, good health, and happy times this weekend. Allow yourselves to enjoy some treats, I will be!

You go girl! I joined WW 5-18-10 and I'm down 59lbs...actually 1lb from my goal weight but I think I should lose another 10lbs. Not sure how to hand that....change my goal weight or not. The receptionist's said leave it as is you can always go below but now above.
