On my Weight Watcher journey I have lost very slowly but very steadily. In 19 months I have lost 45 pounds which averages out to .592 pounds per week. I still have 5 more pounds until I reach my Weight Watcher goal. I have been at this weight for several weeks. I may be at the ultimate and loathsome plateau. But I am not a quitter. I am a fighter. I really want to lose more weight. Baby steps.
The baby steps and the slow weight loss can be discouraging. None of my clothes fit me. They are all too big. This is a great problem to have. I really do not want to invest in new clothes until I hit my ultimate goal. I went shopping the other day and again got so overwhelmed with all the choices that I walked out of the store. In my plumper days things were so easy. I had one style. Frumpy. I went into a store, tried one item on, and if it fit, I purchased three of the same items – just in different colors.
Back to what I really wanted to share with you today. I am still counting calories. I keep within 1200 calories per day. And on some days I go up to 1600 calories a day. I have stepped up my cardio. This past week I ran 3 plus miles on 5 days and walked 3 miles one day. But I have decided that I needed to shake things up a bit. I am trying something new. I am excited about my new weight loss journey. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog.
