Been a while.

It's been quite a while since my last post. To tell the truth I've lost a bit of focus and I blame it on one thing, getting comfortable with my body. Of course, this isn't a horrible thing, but I am only halfway to my goal and my weight-loss is slowing down. This is the time that I should be extra focused and diligent about my intake and exercise goals, but so far the opposite is happening. This may sound horrible, but I really wish people would stop telling me how great/thin/et cetera I am looking. It's going straight to my head! Lol.

This week has been a bit rough, I've used most of my flex points when normally I use none to 5 of them. My weight seems to be holding steady and I fear I am going to pay at the scale for not earning any activity points. Today I am doing ok, but the two days before that I was feeling hungry all the time. It didn't seem like emotional hunger, so I figured I would give my body what it was asking for. Right now I am regretting it. As of now I am 0.6 pounds away from having lost 20% of my body weight and I don't think I am going to make it by Monday night. I'm trying to focus on the positive, but I'm a little disappointed in myself for my lack of focus and exercise this week.

On the up-side, I bought a pair of size 8 jeans, I am hoping to fit into them by the end of the summer if not sooner!

Wow- 20% is wonderful. I have been going to WW for almost 10 weeks and should hit my 10% next meeting. I have been hearing that I should expect a slower pace soon. How long have you been on plan to get to 20%? I am hoping to do that by week 22?? Is that crazy? I started at 237 pounds and that will put me at 191.

Thanks WW Chic! Good luck on reaching all your goals.
I have been on plan for 19 weeks (or 20 weigh-ins) as of Monday. I think it's a realistic goal to reach 20% by week 22; however, I haven't done the math, but that might be an unhealthy rate of weight loss. I had some big numbers in the first couple of months and the weight was falling off steadily, but in the last month I have noticed a more sluggish rate of weight loss. They do say that you should expect to only see 1-2 pound weeks and eventually even a plateau. I'm not positive, but it seems I am about to hit one, especially if I don't get off of my tuchis.

I'll be eager to read a 10% post. Congrats on your success!
