Weigh in Week 10

This week I was down 1 lb.

At least the scale moved. The grand total lost has been 17.8.

This week I did a lot of estimating of points values. I was nervous that I hadn't done very well. I think that I probably did, "OK" at best. If I would have been more strict I could have possibly lost more, but I try to remind myself that this is a journey that will last my whole life and not a destination.

Although it might take longer to get where I want to go, doing it in a way that will be sustainable is key.

Truthfully, in my life I have never lost this much weight. Granted, I had never had that much to lose before, but I am proud that I have stuck with this for ten weeks and have continued to "see" results.

I put the " around see because, truthfully, when looking in the mirror, I see NO difference.

However, the scale HAS moved and my pants are a little looser.

That counts for something, right?

And these days, counting something other than points comes as a nice change of pace.
