Sweet 16!

Sweet 16 lbs. Last week I weighed in at a 16 lb loss; however, it was Tuesday before lunch rather than my usual Wednesday before dinner, so I took it with a grain of salt until I knew it 'stuck'. It DID! This allowed me to reach my mini-goal of 170, the weight I was when I became pregnant in 2002.

Sweet 16 pts. My loss this week was a whole 0.6 lbs - I'm now 169.4, which officially puts me in the 16 pts/day attributable to my weight, or basically takes a point away. Wow, it's been a while since I've seen the 160's. When I reach the bottom of this number I will have reached the top of my healthy range, so that's a lot of motivation and my body will think I'm a very nice person for doing this, LOL.

Sweet 16 Aug. Maybe nothing so special about this, but I had to add it. It is a beautiful day and I am in a very good mood. The software upgrade went well last night and the database split has been re-scheduled for the end of the month. This is good news for me as I'm still working on July month-end. Happy August 16th everyone!

On the verge of reaching my 10% goal I have been thinking about my lifetime and where I really want to be at the end of this. I have decided to set my WW lifetime at 148, but continue to work towards 140, which is where I really want to be. This will give a lot of wiggle room and will (as dietcoke has done) save some buckos on dues. I could go with the top of my range, but I really don't want to be 'comfortable' in the top 10lb zone called the 150's. I have adjusted my ticker accordingly this week in case anyone thinks she's moved too far, too fast. I took off a whole 3 lbs from her journey. I'll re-adjust after reaching my lifetime status. Now that I've lost - well, 20lbs from that fateful night I bought a set of scales in May and 16.6 since joining WW 4 days of crash dieting later - I feel so determined to get where I need to be.

Scarlet Barbie is feeling good today, ladies! The boys better watch out!
