One of the things that keeps so many people on track with weight watchers is the weigh ins. They aren't public, but the person weighing you in sees your weight and writes it down.
Many bloggers post their weight weekly. It's a far more public way of weighing in, but for many of us, it works and keeps us on track.
When I started this journey, I did both. I went to weight watchers and I posted my weight weekly. Then my weight loss stalled. Then I stopped posting it. Then I started focusing on fitness goals and hoped the weight loss would take care of itself.
I've discovered that, despite being incredibly active, I am still not one of those people that can eat whatever I want. What a shocker.
So, I've started focusing again on what I eat and I've started keeping track of it. As a result, I've started losing weight again and I've decided that it's time to revisit that accountability thing and post it.
So, after months of sitting at a 20ish pound weight loss, yesterday I weighed in at 221.0, for a total weight loss of 22.8 pounds.
Not terribly impressive, given I've been doing this since January. At the same time, 22 pounds down is not 22 pounds up, which is the other direction I could be going. The discoveries I've made during this time are nothing little. I also feel strongly that this is for good. I may be taking some of these steps slowly, but I'm not going back.
