Think Thin Thursday Report

Yesterday I had my first weigh-in at Weight Watchers. I am scale obsessed but wasn't sure how the scale at WW in the afternoon, fully dressed would compare to the one at home in the morning nekkid. Somehow I didn't manage to step on the scale at home last week before the initial weigh-in.

I went to the meeting, chatted in line and waited my turn. The woman who weighs people reminds me a lot of Grandma Yetta from The Nanny. I got on the scale and she looked at me and the scale and back at me. I was a bit worried. Great week she announces, 9.6 pounds! Woo-hoo! It was a bit like the Biggest Loser. Unfortunately no chance of winning $250,000 but definitely feeling like a million bucks. It was so frustrating thinking I was eating "okay" but not losing any weight given the huge increase in activity. It should be interesting in coming weeks to try and tweak it to the point where I can continue to lose at a healthy rate and still feel good to work out.

Strong week of training, two swims, two bikes and one run, tomorrow is training class since there is Clyde's 10K a really popular race in town on Sunday. We are doing a good part of the Iron Girl bike course and all of the run so 14m bike and 3.4m run.

You go girl!

I joined WW in January 2007 and lost 60 pounds. I have managed to keep it off, but maintenance is very difficult. I wish someone had given me this pience of advice, so I'm passing it along to you: Do NOT make any changes that you are not willing to make for the rest of your life. Seriously.

Keep up the good work!
