I did it !

This morning I went to Weight Watchers where upon weighing in I reached my Lifetime Goal.  I have lost 32 pounds in the last ten months.  Good on me.

This is my third go round with Weight Watchers.  I have lost weight each time.  The only reason I gained back the pounds since July of 2010 was due to circumstances beyond my control and my not being mobile for those years.  I am still not very mobile but by following the WW program and making the correct food choices I still lost those 32 lbs.  Of course my first choice of points distribution for the day are for my daily glass or glasses of vino blanco!!  Then I eat everything else healthy.  Hey I have to be allowed one vice in life.  I do hope to be able to loose another 5 to 10 pounds over the next year.

The rain has stopped as of this morning and there is heat and sun in the forecast.  Finally!  There is still a cool wind off the lake today with only a high of 18C.  Meanwhile  I read that Mazatlan just experienced  it’s second highest temperature of the year, 35C, with a heat sensation of 45C.  The highest temperature was 37C, recorded in February and we were there!  I never stop thinking about my garden there and hopefully soon I my wee garden here will start to flourish.

Mom is still holding her own and smiling and communicating.

Life is good!

  7. Well done! It is definitely hard work to lose weight and then keep it off. You are doing it the right way though, healthy eating and doing it slowly. Give yourself a pat on the back.
