Five Pounds

I hit my 5-pound loss at my weigh-in today with a total loss now of 5.4 pounds! I was pretty proud of myself. I had a feeling I had lost this week because I’m really starting to notice it in my stomach, but last week’s gain had me a bit nervous. I knew that was from my tom, but it still is always in the back of my mind.

I’ve been doing really well with the program. There were a couple of days last week that I didn’t even get all my points in. One day I was about 10 points short, but I still managed to lose. I just haven’t been too hungry most of the time. My one weakness is the Weight Watchers candy. I bought a back of the 1-point Double Chocolate Mousse candies covered in dark chocolate, and I am now addicted. I could probably eat my entire day’s worth of points in those. They are fabulous.

I am now 11 pounds from losing 10 percent of my starting weight. When I reach that point I also will be at the top end of my healthy weight range. I’m hoping to be there by the end of January. My plan is to reach my goal by the time we do IVF at the end of March, and I really think that’s doable.
