Last Thursday, I made my official return to Weight Watchers. My starting weight? 231 pounds.
Just two-and-a-half months ago, I weighed in at 216 pounds. Now, that weight was definitely a little artificial. I had just come off a three-day cleanse and I was wearing almost nothing and weighing in in the morning, right after the most brutal boot camp of my life. This time, I had already eaten brekfast and lunch and I was in my full work outfit.
All in all, I’d say I’m probably up 11 pounds from my true weight in May. I was holding steady at 219.6 (to the exact tenth) for weeks straight. Being in the two-teens was really freaking fabulous. I hadn’t been there since I was 22 years old, and I was amazed at how much better and more confident I felt. I can’t wait to get back there!
I’m now just under halfway through the week and things are going well. I stepped on the scale before dinner tonight and I was down FIVE POUNDS. This is likely due to the five hours of walking my mom and I did in Chicago yesterday–it was so much fun!
I will report back on Thursday night with my first set of results. In the meantime, I will keep tracking points (I get 36) faithfully and start to work out more intensely again.
Here are my before photos. First, an almost full-body shot:
Nest, a close-up of the face, since that’s where I always notice weight loss first and I want to be able to compare and see changes very soon!
I tried to crop these pictures, but I’m on my new laptop and my cropped images didn’t save–after I’d edited about 50, thinking all was going well. Oops.
Anyway, I hope to have some updated photos with major changes very soon!
