Losing my BUTT-er

At Weight Watchers tonight (I go for support and also so I can feel healthier and learn portion control--I know some of you wonder why I'm going) I found out I lost .4 pounds. Which is great (better than gaining or maintaining) but still kind of like "so what"??

Then, the lovely Liz and Pat at WW told me that .2 pounds is the same as a stick of butter. So...I actually lost two butter sticks worth of fat this past week!

When you think about it, that's pretty awesome! I have about 4.2 pounds to go to be at my goal, which is still a healthy 7 pounds heavier than the last time I quit WW.

Remember everyone--I go for support and because it helps me to feel motivated to have portion control and live a healthier life. Despite the small setback in my ban of pre-meal bread today, I'm back on track!

Hey! Congrats on the loss! I too have had to get back on track this week.
I always cringe whenever they hold that yellow chunk of fat up and tell you it's 1 pound. To think I had 37 of those things planted on my body is absolutley disgusting.
