We can do it

Sunday, July 08, 2007

My husband has been scolding me for not tooting my own horn lately. So I promised to announce on my blog that I have not only made my Weight Watchers goal, but I acutally have maintained it for 6 weeks and have earned the highly coveted honor of Lifetime Member. Da da da da!!! I lost a total of about 20 lbs. Actually 30lbs since this time last year. I even got my nifty little keychain and the super cool goal star and Lifetime key. I know you are jealous. I know you are sitting there in your computer chair wishing you knew where I live so you could sneak in and steal my little treasures. But alas, they are mine. I worked my ass of for them...literally. Now I only have one ass instead of 2.


I don't know why I feel weird about announcing my success. I guess it has to do with the fact that I still look in the mirror and see so much I wish I could change. Is any woman ever completely satisfied with her body? I could work out non stop and eat nothing but salad and still be stuck with my post-partum sharpei (as my dear fellow blogger Oh the Joys has so eloquently named it) jiggling over my bikini underwear. I've had 3 babies and those jiggles are here to stay.

I do plan on taking a decent picture of myself and do a before and after picture just to see if we can all tell the difference. Sometimes I don't know if I really see one. My husband doesn't GROAN when I sit on his lap anymore though. I guess that is a good sign.

I've kept it off for about 5 months now. Still counting, counting, counting... forever, I guess, eh?
