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!

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!
