Weekend Weigh In (and still no pictures - sorry!)

Does anyone else feel that there just aren't enough hours in the day?!

SO, Saturday weigh was a loss of 2.5lbs (again) least I made a good dent in the gargantuan 3.5lb gain from last week. peaks and troughs, people, peaks and troughs. But the attitude is still in good form, which frankly for me is half of if not most of the battle in the first place!

I am trying desperately hard not to compare this weight loss effort with previous ones. For example. I could tell you what I weighed this time in 2006 and how it differs from now...but I think I will drive myself round the bloody bend if I do that...trying to focus on the here and now, not the past. I may be fatter now but bizarrely I feel a million times healthier. Is that stupid? I am definitely stronger and capable of doing more, exercise-wise. I have not had a chest infection/cold type thing (touch wood and whistle) that I used to get every winter. I do not drink anywhere NEAR as much diet coke. I can run!

I seem to be all about the positive affirmations lately! HA!

Pics later - JE VOUS PROMETTRE!!!!

nice job, lady! your attitude is rockin' right now.

it's smart not to compare yourself to 2006 weight. it's in the past, and we have a bright, skinny future ahead if we'll work hard enough to get it!

I've only recently stopped comparing myself to when I started WW back in 1999. I mean, c'mon. I was barely in my twenties! I went to class all day, worked out at the gym for a minimum of 2 hours each day, did homework and went to bars. It makes me want a nap just talking about it!

Nope you're not crazy. :) I totally get being at you're heaveiest, but feeling like you're healthier than ever before. It just means that the only place to go is up... or down, depending on how you look at it. :)

Great job on the weight loss! YEAH! :)

There is no looking back, only forward and all the good things to come. It is hard not to compare yourself with others.

I do look back to think about what weight I felt the best at. It's a good gage for setting a goal weight.
