I hit 10%!!!

I found out Tuesday night, but just now got around to sharing the news! I am so excited!

I re-joined Weight Watchers near the end of May at 5 weeks post-partum. (They have a safe weight loss plan for nursing moms) The first major goal you set is to lose 10% of your starting body weight. I did it! I've lost a little more than that, now, for a total so far of 17.2 pounds!

I am so happy and feel so much better about myself. I'm starting to recognize my body again. :)
Do you know what that feels like? I can describe it as looking in the mirror, and seeing yourself instead of a stranger that resembles you. It feels GOOD.

I still have a ways to go until I am at my ultimate goal weight, but hey, I'm on my way to being 20 pounds thinner! This is great motivation. I love it. Weight Watchers really works. It works for me. I can still eat my chocolate and ice cream, and I am losing weight. Woo-hoo!
