Weight Watchers Update

19.4 pounds - hold two 10 pound bags of potatoes and that's pretty much how much weight I've lost. When you feel how heavy those are, can you imagine carrying those around day in and down out, well apparently that's what my body has been doing for years. Yes, I still need to lose a lot more potatoes... uh pounds but this first 20 is a real eye opener. 

I think this first 20 which I will officially hit... HOPEFULLY on Sunday, has really set in place my healthy lifestyle change. Yes it can still be hard but it's not as hard as those first few weeks of change. Now I know what my triggers are, now I know what food works for me and what doesn't, now I know what to do to stay on track and now I have the tools to do so. Everyday I have to be aware of what I'm eating, everyday I need to be accountable, everyday I need to remind myself that this is not a short term fix, this is for life.

So for all those on a healthy lifestyle journey (Diet is a dirty word on this blog) stay strong and remember everyday we get to start all over. We get to set new goals and we get to improve our lives just one spoonful and one pound at a time.
