Journey to Goal – Weeks 9 & 10

Pardon me for not blogging last week.  I woke up early Saturday morning with the stomach bug from you know where and I wasn’t able to do much of anything but lie in bed or puke.  Sorry for all the details, but I don’t think I’ve been that sick since I was #1 pregnant or #2 a kid.  Needless to say, I’m not pregnant – that’s been verified by a doctor, and now I’m still recovering from that super bug.  It’s been day 8, and I am still not eating a proper diet.  The BRAT diet and I have become fast friends, and I’m really getting tired of eating bananas and white bread. 

I did not make my weigh in last week, but I did get on the scale at the doctor’s office on my weigh in day and was down 2.8 lbs and at my 1st Weight Watchers starting weight.  I hit a goal, even being as sick as I was.  This week, I made myself got to my meeting this morning even though I haven’t followed program in a week due to this little bug I seen to have.  I’m not getting sick anymore, but I still can’t eat anything but bananas, crackers, and toast.  When I do, I get very nauseated, and life gets interesting, to say the least.  The meeting was awesome.  This week I lost another 1.2 lbs so my total weight loss is 16.2 lbs.  I’m so close to MY 10% it’s crazy.  And then only a few more lbs until my Weight Watchers 10% (remember, I went back to Weight Watchers after I had lost 3 lbs on my own.  Regardless, at some point this next week, I am headed out to get the first three daisies of my tattoo.

Hoping that my stomach will cooperate so I can get back on following the good heath guidelines.  I’m very excited about the Weight Watchers Walk It Challenge.  I will be signing up on pay day to participate in this event and making fitness a priority as well as eating healthily.  I hope you’ll join, too!
