I've also reached that happy point where people are noticing my weight loss! I received a few compliments this week and was told that you could tell I have lost weight. For those of you who know people on a diet, we find it very encouraging when people notice all our hard work. If you know someone on a diet, try to take notice of their changes because it makes them want to work even harder. If you see them every day it may be a bit difficult to tell at times but try to take notice. I know I always want to work harder toward my goal when people notice because I have the mindset that if it's not apparent I lost weight then why should I try? If you don't believe me when I say the compliments are important to us, look here's an article to back me up that was written by a Weight Watchers user.
So, after saying all of that, here are my numbers for the week. They aren't as good as last week but it is a loss and I am celebrating each and every loss. Some weeks will be better than others.
Weight Lost this Week: 1.1 pounds
Total Weight Lost: 15.4 pounds
Total Weight Percentage Lost: 7.5%
So I've officially broken the 15 pound mark! I'm very excited. This means I have less than 35 pounds left to lose. I set my goal for an even 50 pounds and I am well on my way. My goal is not to be a tiny little thing. I like my curves but I need to get rid of my extra weight so my goal is to be a size 8. I'm on my way! How's your diet going? Feel free to share tips and comments below!
I have been promised that I will be able to update on the competition in next week's post. We will see where I stand. I know I am ahead of mom but she has been consistently losing weight each week and I am very proud of her! My sister has promised to weigh in next week so we will see if I am winning or need to pick up the pace. I hope to be able to exercise soon but we'll wait for my back to allow for that.
Have a great week! And good luck to everyone on a diet!
