I Made Goal!


Okay, so my personal goal is still 120 but as far as Weight Watchers is concerned, on the books, I have made my goal of 126. It was actually suppose to be 125 but after evaluating my progress and how I was stuck bopping up and down from 126 to 128, one of the leaders convinced me to change it. Then when I got on the scale and it said 125.6 I was thrilled! It was close enough to what I was aiming for in my meetings. So now I am on the Maintenance period. I have to stay at or below my goal weight of 126 for 6 weeks to be considered a Lifetime member. I am, however, allowed to gain no more than 2 lbs while on Maintenance. Nils is doing really well with Weight Watchers as well and is making good progress, losing each week and not gaining. Together we went shopping for foods that were considered Core foods which is one of the two plans you can pick to be on while on Weight Watchers. It relies more heavily on listening to your body's cues that you are satisfied and less on counting every little point. The only downside is you have to eat only what's on the Core food list, everything else has to be counted as points. You can read more about the Weight Watchers program at their website:
