Last week: 206.2
This week: 205
Weekly loss: -1.2
Total loss: 87
I'm happy with that loss this week! The last few weeks I've been slacking a little. Last week I didn't track three days and before then I had never miss one day since I started WW in April of 2010! I could give excuses about my DS being out of school for the summer along with my DH being out of town for a month (he's home!), but I won't. I simply didn't track because I wasn't feeling motivated to do so. I did better this week and was back to tracking every day. Tracking works and it was the topic of my WW meeting today, actually. I may blog about tracking later this week, but today I'm celebrating some NSV's instead!!!
NSV's = Non-Scale Victories or ways to measure success off of the scale. Here are a few I'm celebrating today:
- I lost 7 inches last month! I don't have the exact numbers in front of me, but I know I've lost over 85 inches total. CRAZY!
- My WW leader talked to me today about being a WW leader once I reach my goal. I hadn't yet shared with her that I was hoping to to do that someday and she approached me today to talk about it. In order to do that, I need to reach WW guidelines, which means at least 45 pounds more to go! I'm excited that she believes I'd make a good leader and I hope that this time next year I'll be one!
- She also talked to me about once I reach my goal, submitting my story to Weight Watchers magazine. Even if they don't publish my story, I was taken aback that she would suggest it and tickled to think that it might happen. It felt great to be recognized and it was exactly the motivation I needed to hear today to continue on this journey of mine.
I got home and felt refreshed from our meeting and from my talk with my leader. What a blessing she is to me! I made this little word cloud and have it printed out and am going to hang in on my desk.
