Weigh Day - 59 pounds!

Finally!  I'm on my way again!

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!

  1. Hi Cindy,

    Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! I agree about the "slow" loss. And that there's so much to deal with and process other than just losing weight. I think it's that processing that has been so valuable to those of us who are reading your blog.

    Love you,
    Your sister
