Weight Watchers Update

Stephen hit goal last week! He’s lost an astonishing 40 pounds in 4 months. Honestly, I didn’t even realize he had that much to lose. My husband’s a hottie, folks.

As for me, I’m down 24 pounds. Nothing to sneeze at, right? I’m not quite at goal, though I’m only 3 pounds from my wedding weight, where I thought I should be. Giving birth to that adorable child has apparently changed my body more than I realized; I’m at least 10 pounds away from fitting into my wedding dress. I can’t blame Harry completely, though. Back then I was working out 3 times a week, sometimes more, so my body had a lot more muscle than it does now. A lot. I haven’t exercised regularly since 2006, people! And since muscle weighs more than fat even while it takes up less space, the scale isn’t the only way to gauge what a weight-loss goal should be.

Disappointing, but I’ll just keep going until I get there. And I’ll write another note to self: EXERCISE, DUMMY.

    I agree. You both look fabulous. I joined Weight Watchers and I'm going to the meetings, I'm just not tracking, or exercising, or limiting my candy intake and so not losing weight. Ugh, I'm 10 pounds up from where I was last year when I came back from Italy. I got a call from the Cardiac Rehab center the other day wondering where I have been. Maybe I need to call them back and go in. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Well done, Debbie. That kind of loss takes incredible commitment, I'm seriously impressed! My weight loss isn't going quite so well! It's just such an incredible, one step forwards, one step back process for me! I'm hoping I'll be able to progress a little quicker when the kids go back to school!
