I am 6 days late on this post, but in WW world, the month didn’t end till yesterday and I had to wait until my weigh-in to see if I met my goal for April. And the answer is, YES!!!
As a reminder, my goal for April was to hit my 10% goal at WW and hopefully say hello to the 150’s.
If you read my post yesterday, of course you know that I did just that. I am so excited to have met my goal, 18 weeks after going back to Weight Watchers. I can absolutely feel and see a difference. Here are pictures of me in November of last year (2012), at Pretty Muddy and the Women’s Half Marathon. This was my heaviest ever.
I was so not comfortable in either of these pictures. The Women’s Half was my slowest half marathon to date. Granted, I was coming off my bout of sciatica, but I was also 20 pounds heavier and that is so much more to carry when you’re trying to run. This next photo is my before photo taken Dec. 31, 2012, the night before I went back to Weight Watchers. Still not comfortable…
And this was taken yesterday…. 20 pounds make such a difference on my short frame. I am a muscular girl and will always look stronger than skinny. But I am so much more comfortable in my skin at 157.8 lbs. than I am at 178 lbs.. Every bit of hard work on meal planning, running, and working out is worth it for how I feel. Every. Single. Bit.
I am more than halfway to my goal of 138 – 140 lbs. I don’t think I can be that 130 – 135 lb. girl I used to be, but 138 – 140 lbs. sounds pretty darn possible to me.
