up again

I was up 2.2 at weigh in yesterday. Not sure what that was about. Yes, I haven't had the greatest week, but I didn't think it was that bad. I don't eat out of stress as much as I used to, but I do drink a lot more diet Coke and a lot less water when I am stressed out. Maybe that's it?

Anyway. I am also starting to rethink my goal. I have talked about this before how I set my numbers based on the WW chart and what I weighed in high school. I am not sure I care so much about that number right now.

I honestly feel good as a size 10. I never thought I would wear that. And each morning when I pull on my jeans I am pleasantly surprised to see that they still fit!

I want to work on the muscle tone in my belly, for sure. But I don't feel like I have a ton more belly fat that I need to get rid of. Is my belly flat? Nope, but I am 37 and have been pregnant A LOT in the past 12 years...often with less than 18 months between pregnancies. i don't expect to have my belly look like it did when I was 17, so why do I need to focus on that same number?

I guess this week has been refocusing for me. Maybe my priorities have changed a little. I don't know. But I think I may be done with losing and ready to focus on maintenance. I sent an email to my leader this morning asking what she thinks. I'll wait to see what she says and then make a decision.

What do you think, Kathy?

If you are at a healthy weight, then only you can decide when you are at a weight that suits you...that is a very personal decision. And setting this weight as your new "goal" certainly doesn't prevent you from getting below that in the future if you decide you want to. Go for it!!!

I think you look really good. If you're comfortable with where you are and how you look, forget about the numbers. I'm sure you'll gain and lose a few lbs here and there but ultimately it's about being happy with yourself/your body isn't it?

A ten. I dream of being a ten.

I agree with the others, you can decide when you are at the right weight. My doc says that your body will tell you, you will struggle if the weight is too low and when it is about right, you will just have to be careful. Does this help you?

I am going to add you to my blog roll. I am starting WW this week!
