Weight Loss Update

Posted on: October 30, 2013

Many of my Regular readers know that I successfully lost weight with Weight Watchers and have been stuck at the highest weight that they recommend for my height.

Linking up with What i Wore 


I wanted to be more in the middle range and lose a few more pounds, but that final 10  has remained illusive.

I remembered my leader telling me 6 months ago that I might have better success if I just set this as my goal weight and see what happens.  She suggested that quite often when members do that they end up being successful.  I ignored her then, but two weeks ago I was ready and said that my goal weight was 140lbs. This was after a six week hiatus of not going to meetings. I had weighed in at 143 previously , so lost three pounds during the break! 


I think there is something to this because prior to this I was gaining and losing the same three pounds with 140 being the lowest.  Now, I feel like I have to stay under the 140 mark.  Even with the onset of Menopause and the hot flashes and night sweats, I lost another .6 pounds and am 139.4 today.  It will be interesting to see how this works out and where I will be in four weeks when I make Lifetime!  That means as long as I stay under that  goal I can go to meetings for free!


Since I began losing weight for health,  and with the intention of losing this and maintaining it for life. I plan to continue going to meetings, so I am looking forward to not paying my $42.95 a month.  Although I have to say it’s the best use of money to lower my blood sugars and blood pressure to take that added weight off my knees.. etc.

Stay tuned,  if  I stay under the 140 mark for the next 4 weeks I will finally do the reveal of my before and after shots.

I’ve lost a total of 50lbs!  I worked out at the YMCA and lost almost half of it before beginning Weight Watchers

Dear Readers, I am excited about finally claiming a goal weight and the possibility of getting closer to the actual weight i want to retain. I know this attitude change and newfound hope to lose that final weight comes from the impending trip to ireland and the possibility of a cruise as well.

 Now as for my outfit, I decided to try another Loft Dress I bought on ebay with my navy suede boots today and I like this look much better than yesterday’s.  I always weigh at my meetings in a dress for consistency and loved wearing dresses two days in a row! 


I am so grateful that I went to my WW meeting today, as it really is enjoyable everytime!

I am grateful for wonderful conversation with a friend and the positive changes in her life.

I am grateful that my husband had a break today and was able to come home for almost two hours.

I am grateful that I made plans to go for a walk at the beach on Friday, exercise and girl chatting, in one!

Congratulations on setting your goal for weight watchers. This is a great way to celebrate your accomplishments.

CONGRATULATIONS Tracey!! You should be so proud of yourself for such a great goal accomplished!! I need to do it but I can’t seem to get motivated. :/ I’ve done WW before- it is the best program out there. I *LOVE* your outfit today! That dress is so cute!

All in good time ….I waited until I was mentally prepared to really succeed.

Tracey, that’s so fantastic! You’ve got to be so proud! I’m a repeated WW dropout myself, and it’s been several years since I’ve been back, but I think it may be time. Your success is helping push me in that direction!

Thank you and I wish you success and encourage you to not drop out. Keep me in mind and know I have been losing those same three pounds for a good 8 months and refused to give up!

Keep up the great work. As someone who also struggles with weight loss, I can really appreciate the work and achievement. 🙂

Congratulations Tracey. I love love your blog! Think your decision sounds great. If it helps, I made a similar choice (goal weight at the high end of the range) and have never regretted it. I am confident I chose a healthy weight and every time I’m ‘feeling fat’, I remind myself that no, I am at a healthy weight – and that’s what counts! I am over 10 years as a Lifetime member. Some months I have to pay, but staying at one weight (plus or minus 5 pounds) is something I’m proud of.

Thank you so much! It does help. Congrats on 10 years and keeping it within 5 lbs!

I enjoy reading your your blog. You are just an average person blogging. I can really relate! Congrats on your successes! I look forward to you sharing your before/after pics!

I’ve been maintaining a 90 lb weight loss for a few years. It’s definitely been a bumpy road.

Tlhank you, Wow, congratulations on losing 90lbs and the hard work that it takes to maintain it.
