Down 2.4 and feeling great

I'm feeling great folks-it ain't no lie! I feel like I have a little bit more control these days. I don't always make what other would think to be the best food choices but I feel just fine. I know that in the future I will have to address certain issues of over eating but for right now I just don't want to ever feel deprived. Life is just too short to deprive one self.

Kind of funny thing before I sign off for the night. Last night before my ww meeting I logged in my loss. Each week you log in your progress it will have a little message for you (great job, keep it up). Well this week there was a bit of a nasty gram despite my 2.4 loss. It said "you are losing too much weight too quickly...doing this could cause health issues in the long run. Please consult your physician." I'm averaging 2.3 pounds a week. The most I've ever lost in one week was the 3.8. I kind of snorted at my computer because what do these folks expect? We sign up to learn to control our eating and follow the guidelines as directed. If you go from eating 60 plus points a a day to no more than 31 points a day of course your going to lose pounds. right? I mean what else is supposed to happen?

I'm not worried about it though. I know my body. I would be more concerned if I lost 8 pounds the first week or consistently lost 6 pounds a week until my goal weight. My goal is and will continue to be to lose no less than 2 pounds but no more than 3.5 pounds a week (and that only for a couple weeks here and there because I want to be at my goal weight (140) by June 1st 2011).

Have a great week!!


  1. lol. Those warnings are probably in place so you can't sue for being encouraged to be extreme. But 2 pounds a week is a healthy rate- and .4 is nothing to sweat about. Keep it up!! :-D

  2. Impressive! Congrats on listening to your body :)

  3. Rock on! You're my hero :) I keep trying to get my eating under control, but no luck yet. Stressed keeps throwing me off.

  4. Congrats! Raspberries to that warning; you are doing great!

    You've got the ball, Tori, run with it!!!


  5. Hey there, I am a new follower here. First off, congrats! I respect anyone who loses more than 1 pound (I pretty much lose in fractions of a pound). @.4 is such an awesome number! Way to go :)
