So I officially made my “goal” weight tonight at WeightWatchers – I’m under 180 pounds, having lost almost 20 in the last 10 weeks. Now, I’ve got 6 weeks to keep this weight before I become a “lifetime” member and can attend meetings for free. It’s been a rewarding process, largely because it’s helped me change my thoughts on what types of food are good, etc.
Plus, this last weekend I got to buy a new belt – since my old ones were starting to get a bit loose on the smallest setting. The one I got was a medium (32-36), and pretty artsy-funky. It’s nice to have some more concrete indication that I’m getting thinner than just the numbers on the scale.
Next up – getting my good cholesterol a bit higher. I went through OSU’s personal health assessment a few weeks ago, and that was the biggest thing to come from that appointment. From the literature they gave me at the time, it means eating a bit more fish in my diet (hey Jamie, how does this match up with the no-starch plan?) I’ll have to go through and review the other numbers to make sure I’m not missing anything, but my assumption is that if I can get the cholesterol numbers where they should be, that I’ll be in good shape to re-start running, etc.
