Lifetime!!!!


A year and a half later, and I have finally achieved Lifetime status at Weight Watchers! Tonight I completed my sixth and final week of maintenance, of course my weight moved up and down a wee bit... but just a wee bit. What a relief to have this over... now I'm not done remember this is a lifestyle change not a diet. I'll never, ever, ever, ever, let myself get over 200 lbs ever again!!!!

Besides being healthy, and active what's been the biggest perk? For the first time in my life I REALLY enjoy clothes shopping! If you are or ever have been short and overweight, believe me it is awful, nothing fits properly and nothing looks good.

So far I have managed to survive the first two days of school... can I survive the rest of the week? I hope so, I'm just looking forward to Kathy's stitchy weekend!

Congratulatioins on your acheivement at WW. I am putting my husband on the Danish De Danske Vægtkonsulenter. Main dish - 300g of vegetables twice a day. He lost 2 kg within a week :0). I think it is a headache to limit certain food and amount every week.

Congratulations!
I go in for my "first" weigh in tonight. I have given everything I do a lot of thought this week, like why am I eating this now? Am I really hungry, or am I bored, so I have noticed a lot of my trends. You have been such an encouragement to me over the past year and a half. I thank you for that.

Congrats Dani!!

Dee said...

That's is FANTASTIC! CONGRATULATIONS!

I know exactly what you mean about being short and hating to clothes shop. I was an 18 --- they assume if you wear an 18 you must be 10 foot tall.

Now, I'm in a 14 --- much more selection! I still have to have the pants hemmed (a LOT), but at least the dresses don't drag the floor.

I could not be happier for you Dani - congratulations! I am short and overweight so believe me I know what you are saying about clothes. I would love it if my sleeves were the right length for once! I hope someday to be able to say the same things you are right now but I'm struggling still. This is a big day for you!
