Weight loss update

As most of my reader who have been reading for a couple of months now know that I have lost 30 lbs in the last year and a half doing Weight Watchers. Here are the photos if you don't believe me. I just wanted to give you an update since I don't post every week about how much I have lost, I really have been stuck right around 140 lbs since May. I still follow when I can but a lot of times it is really hard to fit it in socially. I am happy though that I have been able to stay where I am and that I have not been gaining again. I have been told so many times by so many people "Oh I lost a lot of weight doing ww but then I gained it all back". Obviously they just went back to the thing that made them gain the weight in the first place if that is the case.

I got back from my trip and weighed 144.2 on the 11th. I am happy to announce that after 3 days of following my points I am down to 139.8 this morning (my lowest was 138.8 September 5th.) I will be able to follow my points today but I will be using my extra points tomorrow since I have a 1st birthday party and then a sleepover with my YL girls. Sunday morning I will be back to following my points though. I love to see the definition that is a little more noticeable every morning when I wake up and I love how my clothes are fitting a little looser everyday. I know that I lost a lot of weight in a short time but I do realize it was mostly water weight and it will level off soon. Hopefully I will be able get past this and start loosing weight regularly again. I know the holidays can make this hard but I have such an easier time loosing during the winter. I also really want to fit in running and lifting weights again since I know that building muscle will only help my metabolism.

the first comment is so true. your jaw line is so beautiful and i would kill for a jaw line like that! :) you look amazing. i lost 40 pounds between 2004 and 2005 and have kept most of it off. that 135 lb-145 lb is where i hang out most of the day. it's so nice to be able to follow the WW program for a week and be back where you need to be. pregnancy is going to be a big challenge, but i'm trying not to think about it.

That is great girl! Do you follow the HG's or do you just eat whatever as long as it is in your point range for the day?
