Weigh Day - 59 pounds!
We won't even discuss how I like round numbers and wish it was SIXTY. Not a word. ;~)
I was thinking today about how grateful I am -- really -- that this has turned out to be a slow process. It's one thing to lose weight and get smaller. What I had not anticipated were the other changes that I would experience on this journey. For every pound that I lose, there are emotional losses and gains to deal with. I never realized that so much of the work would be dealing with those changes!
But now that I know about the emotional work involved in the process, I'm happy for weight loss to be slow. It gives me a chance to "catch up" with myself on other levels. Last July when I joined Weight Watchers Online, I knew that I had to change. A year later it is finally sinking in just how profound that change will be.
Blessings and hugs!
