As you all know that sometimes when you are on weight watchers and are trying to change your life challenges can arise. One of these challenges can be thanksgiving. I prepared as much as I could for the event using tools that I learned at weight watchers . Like making sure I bring lots and fruits and veggies with me while out of town for the big day and packing yogurt and other low point foods. I also made sure I exercised every day, except for Thanksgiving day, so that I could feel better about eating a little more. I packed my smallest pants for the occasion and tried not to starve myself before the big meal. Finally the moment arrived that I was to eat. Everything looked so great but I was determined to lose weight this week especially since I was only 1 pound away from a huge goal. Well I didn't pack my plate too full but I still tried most everything and enjoyed it. I loved being with friends and family and hearing about their past thanksgivings and what they were thankful for. It was a good dinner and I still saved room for pie later that night. Well today I had to face the scale to see if my hard work and determination paid off. It did! I lost 1.8 pounds that week and I feel great. I achieved my goal and I can't believe it.
To all you weight watcher believer keep going, you can do it, just don't give up and you will achieve your goals.

Well, I did it! I am 20.8 lbs lighter and 10 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight. I feel great and I am going for that last 15 lbs. I would like to get there and stay there for about a year before we have another child. To celebrate I bought this new outfit at old navy.
