3 months at goal, and holding

Recommended Posts

Aloha everyone, I have been "gone" for awhile, and missed many of you.

 

I have some photos of my journey, starting in May 2009 and goal in January 2010. I hesitated to post them as I took the pictures in my "skivvies", they are the best photos I have and so hope they come up. They are no different than wearing a bathing suit so I decided to post them.

 

First off...let me see if this works...

My before and after! 44 pounds gone gone gone...

 

I feel wonderful. It was a bit scary at first to get back to "regular" eating, but enough time has gone by and my weight is holding .

 

I can actually eat quite a bit more that when I was on the "diet" phase,, though I am aware of what goes in my mouth. I used to really like my beer and this is one thing I have finally learned to let go. It was one of the big culprits on my weight gain.

 

Anyway, WW rocks, this site rocks, and I wish all the success to all of you. Believe me, I was surprised that I did it, proud, and now able to enjoy food properly.

CONGRATULATIONS Patty!! :goal:

 

I think it's very wise to just let some things go because the alternative could mean you wind up right back where you started. That's what I've been struggling with because my "trigger" is anything with sugar (specifically chocolate) and we all know how difficult it is to permanently ditch the "white beast". I'm working on it!!

Hi Patty - three months at goal is quite an achievement - congratulations! It's great that you are figuring out what works for you.

 

I have lots of triggers - alcohol, sugar, salty-fatty foods... and I'm learning to manage them as I go.

Patty, you go girl! You look amazing! And if you hadn't said anything, I would have thought you were in swimwear!

 

Glad to see you posting!

Thanks everyone for your encouragement! You are also such an inspiration to me.

 

I can see why the maintenance is a bit harder. I usually do pretty good, but as soon as the scale goes up a couple pounds I buckle down and eat lighter.

 

I think I need to be accountable and get good advice from others. I don't do meetings or WW online, the reason being meetings are too far away and also my budget is just so tight.

 

However I have encouraged many to go to meetings. I had a leader that told me because I did it at home without meetings, I am one of the reasons the company suffers.

 

Very silly. If she only knew how many people I have encouraged to join. Consider yourselves lucky to have great meetings and leaders, as the one meeting here really was not for me.

 

I will find another board to get advice, keep up the great work everyone and how great it feels to be slim and healthy!
