On Monday I weighed myself and got a wonderful holiday surprise: I had lost the final few pounds I needed to hit my weight loss goal. I’m 20 pounds lighter and quite proud of myself.
Of course, there is still a long way to go. Twenty pounds is the tip of the iceberg, but at least I’m chipping away at it.
When this all started back in March, it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The weight was coming off so slowly that I was getting discouraged. But with the addition of Weight Watchers to my daily routine, I’m seeing a steady loss of weight and learning to curb my problem eating habits. It’s a relief.
My next goal is to have lost thirty pounds, which feels very attainable to me. I should see it by the end of January. Quite the positive way to start off a new year!
