Yeah, that's right baby--153! I felt lighter this morning and knew the scale was going to be down. The last time I weighed 153.0 was in March.
There's something about the WW Online tracker that is motivating me. I like getting a smiley face when I've checked off all the "healthy habits" tickers for the day. I like seeing how many points I have left for the day or the week and also seeing how I get more points when I workout.
And POINTS have already infected my brain--yesterday as I was running in the 92* heat (would someone please remind me the next time I think it feels okay outside when I walk to my car and I think "sure, no problem, I can run in this, it's not that hot," that your body heats up about 20 degrees after you've run a mile and if it's 92 it's gonna feel like 112 outside after mile 1?!) and I had to stop running after 2 miles and walk a 3rd mile at a slow-assed 16:30 pace because I felt like I was gonna throw up--I was disappointed that I was only going to earn 4 activity points instead of the 6 I'd planned.
Yes, I know, I've drunk the Koolaid and I'm a lost soul.
Whateva. It's working.
Those of you who are in weight loss mode might want to read this post from Trixie Belden. In it she outlines the "secrets" to how she lost 90 pounds in a year and a half. She's been maintaining at around 135 pounds since January, so she's definitely one to emulate.
