I didn't have my greatest weight loss this week but I (knock wood) continued my unbroken string of dropping something every week, and 1.8 pounds is good by any standard.But the real headline for me is that I've entered a new "decade" -- the 170s. Barely, but I'll take it.
It's been exactly four calendar months since I started Weight Watchers and I expect these 20-ish pounds to go to be the most difficult. Transparency is the most powerful inoculation against poor progress.
Also, here is some weird psychology: When I was at my heaviest, I knew I was fat, but seldom felt that way. Now, 56 pounds less, I know where every ounce of excess poundage is -- and I feel every bit of it.
