Progress photos coming soon! (and 155 vs. 154)

Remember those progress photos that I take every ten pounds in my size 20 jeans and my pink sports bra?

I am now only .8 a pound away from taking the next set! And I have no doubt whatsoever that I will make that goal (155.0) this week. I'm so excited to be at the top of Weight Watchers' healthy weight range.

Which I always assumed was a healthy BMI, but I just found out that my top weight for a healthy BMI is 154, not 155... a fact that I am going to try to completely ignore, since I have been so focused on "155" for so long.

I will be celebrating 155 as if it is a healthy BMI for me, regardless of the facts... by the way, WW, why do you have 155 as a "healthy" weight if 154 is the real healthy weight??

Yes, I'm bothered that 154 should be my new 155... but I really want to celebrate being "normal" at 155, and WW tells me that I can, so THERE. :-)

Anyway, I will be posting updated progress pictures next weekend.

I lost 1.2 last week!!! I am absolutely thrilled to finally have surpassed my pre-christmas low weight of 156.8 by an entire pound. I'm so happy to be back on the weight-loss path.

P.S. I have not forgotten about re-reading The Kind Diet and posting detailed thoughts about each chapter/section of the book. I actually finally started to re-read it this weekend, and plan to start the posts next weekend. Yay for The Kind Diet!

That's awesome Leah! I'm looking forward to seeing your updated pics. You've done so amazing!

incredible! you go girl :) i might start using your meal plan since it works so well.

Leah said...

Melissa- go for it if you want! It's definately a mixture of healthy/whole foods and processed (but vegan) garbage, but it works, and I (almost) never feel deprived. :-)

That's wonderful! By the way, you've also given me the idea to take similar pictures during my journey. I think it might help me see the changes better than fully clothed progress pictures.

c- I had no idea how much back fat I had until I took my "before" shots. It's been great to compare!
