See the "My Progress" link on the sidebar for my weight loss and inches lost since starting Weight Watchers 11/11/2009. I debated whether or not to post it and decided to for accountability. It's hard to think about people seeing the numbers and judging, but maybe the thought of that will help me see myself as I am right now. Sometimes I think we fall into sort of a body dysmorphia, where we look in the mirror but instead of seeing the reflection, we see what we expect to see. It could be the newly slim person seeing their former heavier self (more common than you might suspect), the fit person seeing non-existent excess weight, or in my case, the heavy person seeing someone somewhat smaller. So here's to seeing clearly!
On a related note, I went to WW last night after missing last week's meeting. I went to our final two Christmases of the holiday season in the interim and am pleased to report I only gained 0.8 lbs in the two weeks since the last time I went to a meeting. I would have liked to see a loss but it could have been worse, especially since I'm still struggling with tracking my food. But today is a new day, I have my tracker in-hand and am starting fresh! And if you'll notice on my Progress page, minus a few inches, which I am attributing to my recent workout streak. Wahoo!
