I am so excited!
I lost weight this week!!
OH MY GOSH, I FINALLY lost weight.
I lost 1.4 pounds. Was quite a shock.
I kept steady gaining weight all week. Even after I exercised just almost every day. I stayed on points and seemed to be doing great. Except the scale kept kicking me in the gut every morning.
Then Kelly mentioned something on my Wednesday blog post that hit me like a mac truck... Sodium. I know I have a problem with eating too much sodium. Didn't used to be that way, but recently I've learned that if I eat too much, I'll start retaining. (I miss my nightly popcorn snack so bad.) But I wasn't even thinking when I bought a bag of pretzels last weekend. I know they're low fat and relatively low in points. I can have a small bowl for only 3 points. But I forgot that the sodium is a killer for me.
So Thursday, no pretzels and no salt. Lost half a pound that day.
Then Friday, no preztels and no salt at all. Lost 2 pounds.
I was retaining!
Thanks for helping me figure that out. Just in time, too.
So, now I'M THE LOWEST WEIGHT I'VE EVER BEEN since I started WW 2 years ago. I'm coming up on my 2 year anniversary with WW. I started on May 12, 2007. I haven't missed one week of WW since then. Not one. I know me, if I miss a week then it will be okay to miss and I'll soon lose my motivation for accountability.
I'm now down to 167.4lbs.
I've got 2.2 pounds to get the ominous 100.
But more importantly, I'm only 2/10ths of a pound from a paper clip!!!
I'm so excited. And I just can't hide it. Can you hear the Pointer Sisters chiming along with me?
