FMM: How Much Weight Have You Lost? And what have you gained from losing it? (If you’re participating in FMM – and you’re not on a weight-loss journey, tell us about a powerful change you’ve made in your life!)
The first time I joined Weight Watchers (August 2008 - September 2010) my final total was 62.6 lbs. My high point was in March 2010 at 64.0 lbs. But I'd plateau'd for close to a year & was very discouraged & annoyed. So I took a break. I started back on WW in March of this year (I'd gained 18 lbs of that back - dammit!!). It's coming off much slower this time.
So I'm still 56 lbs lighter than I was 3 years ago. I feel so much better! I know my health is better. I walked around the Toronto Zoo this past weekend (lots of steep hills) and felt fine doing it, even in the heat. I have a lot fewer aches & pains & I know I look better, too!
