I check my weight on Sundays and today found that I've now lost 5 lb. since I started Weight Watchers a few weeks ago. When I logged the reading on line, the tracker actually gave me a gold star! Pretty funny - makes me feel like I'm back in kindergarten. :)
More important than the gold star is the proof of progress - that weighing and measuring and eating more mindfully is paying off. It's slow, but it's happening; at this rate, even if I get lazy or decide to indulge in a great big milkshake (which my lactose intolerance wouldn't like), I should be where I want to be by fall.
