10 Percent Down!

Fridays are weigh in days for me.  I was surprised today when I was another pound and a half down this morning.  I was hoping to hit my 20 pound goal this week, but sadly enough I have only reached 19.  I have set a 20 pound goal for myself.  When I reach 20 pounds I would like to go get a few tanning visits so that I can be a bit bronzed for the upcoming (I HOPE!!) warmer weather.

Surprisingly enough, however I have reached a milestone in my weight loss.  I have lost 10% of my body weight.  According to Weight Watchers, losing 10% of your body weight can give you the self-confidence and motivation you need to keep going and increases feelings of vigor and vitality. There are also health benefits to losing 10% of your body weight including lowering cholesterol and reducing blood pressure as well as decreasing your risk for Type 2 diabetes! So, not only am I fitting into those "skinny" jeans I couldn't wear for so long, but also I am finding a healthier, more vigorous ME!

It's great to not only see the weight loss myself, but when others notice it's an even greater feeling. Thanks to everyone for your support. Without it, I know that I could not be losing! It's time to kick my KVM switch into high gear! I am hoping that next week I will reach that 20 pound milestone and hit the tanning bed.
