So this morning at Weigh In, I was up 1.2 pounds, which is my normal TOM gain, so I'm not going to sweat it. Although it ticks me off, I jumped on the scale Friday and Sunday, and you know what, I was actually down .4lbs, and then up 1.2 today....why does the scale have to be so fickle. But at least I know I will see a good loss next week, which will be motivating.
So I've decided to revise my goals. Initially when I set out on Weight Watchers last January, I set my goal at 145lbs. Somehow, over the course of the last 10 months, it's gradually worked it's way down to 140, and 137 as a personal goal. I don't even know why. 145 was a good goal, a doable goal, somewhere I would be happy, so why did I let the goal I set for myself by 8lbs under this? Do we do this on purpose, keep moving that goal lower and lower based on other people's goals, or based on where people are telling us we should be? Well Weight Watchers has my healthy weight range as 131 to 158lbs, and I think 145 is a good goal. Would I like to be a little less than that? Would I love to see the 130's? Yes. I've never been in the 130's since I was grown, even when I was skinny, so why should I try to get there now? So what does this mean? My new goal is 145. It's a perfect goal for me. It's where I wanted to be when I initially set out, and that's where I am going to end up!
Other than that, nothing much new on this end. I've still been fighting a cold/allergies for the past couple weeks, which is taking it's toll on me, but I'm happy to say, I've almost kicked it.
Nice healthy week of meals planned here. I'm trying to remember what's on the chopping block for meals, here they are. Southwestern Macaroni Salad, Vegetable Beef Casserole, Garlic Clove Chicken, Tuna Spaghetti Pie and there is another one, but I can't remember right now! Macaroni Salad is dinner tonight. Recipe will be posted if it's a winner.
Have a safe, healthy and happy day bloggers. Back to work for me!
