Lost: One Metaphorical Small Dog

I'm posting a brief update on my progress with my recent return to Weight Watchers. In the past eight weeks, I've lost 20 pounds, or as E likes to put it, "the equivalent of a small dog." Now, some of you may have seen me and think I'm lying. Twenty pounds is a lot of weight, but I have much, much more to lose, so it might not be that noticeable yet. I can definitely tell, not only in how I look, but in how my clothes are getting roomier and I'm able to wear some stuff from last summer that I'd "outgrown." I've been sticking to monitoring my portions, etc. while not depriving myself. I even had a couple of drinks last Saturday night and those chicken and waffles on Sunday. I've found my focus in terms of food and eating, so now I need to bump up my activity. I am walking more than before, which is a start.

By my next update, I'll hope to be able to say I'm down a Standard Poodle.

Congratulations, but your headline scared me - I thought you'd actually lost one of your dogs!

Good job!!! Keep it up! I'm hoping perhaps you'll inspire me to get to working on it too! No pressure. ;0)

Wow! You go girl! WW really seems to work for people - my girlfriend just told me she's back on it and lost about 20 lbs too!

Oh congratulations! You inspired us to want to try, but we never got off the ground with it. Life is just too stressful right now so I will be going to the Caymans diving in November with 70 extra pounds... again.
