WI day

Well, first off, I would like to thank everyone for their encouraging comments last week. It was a tough week mentally, and all your comments really helped ;)

My hubby also helped in a weird sort of way. He asked me at one point towards the end of my binging last week if I was done. I asked him 'done what?' and he said 'done with Weight Watchers?' and that's when everything really hit me - HE ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO GIVE UP! That floored me. I have told him before that this is a lifestyle change - he knows that, he is changing his lifestyle too!! But I guess he just watched me fall back into old patterns and figure I was going back to how I used to be. I told him - NO, NEVER!!! I am never going back, I am never giving up, and I will reach my goals. I told him that I may stray sometimes, but I will always find my way back.

I think that was the final push I needed. I got right back on track, and drank LOTS of water to help flush all that crap out of my system. It worked really quickly, 2 days later I weighed what I did on the Monday before the binge. And now, at wi day today I was down 0.6, which means I HAVE REACHED 40 LBS GONE!!! I am officially 40.4 lbs lighter than when I started this journey. I am so happy, and ready to have a great week. NO EXCUSES!!!

What a great testimony!
Thanks for sharing...
my goal right now is to not gain my normal 45-60 lbs while pregnant! I seem to think being pregnant is a license to eat!
