On a roll!

Last week's weight:  
This week's weight:  
Total loss: 

I am so relieved, and ecstatic, and...motivated!

I've been stressing so much about today's weigh in, but here's the proof in front of me: Make the effort to be active and it will pay off, even if it's just 3 days of a half hour on the elliptical (yep, I didn't run last night as I planned to).

18.6lbs. That is the most amount of weight I have ever lost. Ever. 

When I first did the Weight Watchers program my senior year of high school, I lost 10 pounds. I wasn't working out, just following the plan and going to meetings. I remember it was the holiday season, and after that 10lb loss, I had a weigh in where I gained 7 pounds. 7 pounds!

Now, I don't know if that was over the course of one week or maybe it was two, but I remember feeling absolutely devastated. Completely losing all hope and motivation. And giving up.

Now, having lost just shy of 20 pounds, I'm still about 9-10lbs away from my weight at that point. But I feel different this time around. Maybe I'm riding the high of having about a month of straight losses, but this time, I know I can do this. I'm not trying, or hoping, or wishing - I am doing it. And it feels good!

How was your week??
