Tell All Tuesday - Week 20

Today is probably the most exciting post that I have done to date! Today I had a great weigh in! I was down......are you ready for this number.... 3.8 pounds! I am in ONEderland!!!!! This is very exciting for me because I am pretty sure the last time I weighed this little was probably the summer between 5th and 6th grade! This weigh in also allowed me to celebrate losing my second 10%! Yes, that is right, I have now lost more than 20% of my body weight.
Also today, a lady in my WW meeting mentioned that she had heard of a woman that gave her husband a WW star sticker since he had been encouraging her. He put the sticker on his laptop and looked at it often knowing what his encouragement had meant to his wife. Today she gave ME a sticker for encouraging her. That meant so much to me to get a BRAVO sticker for encouraging someone else! I have never really thought of myself as an encourager before today! THANK YOU for letting me encourage you and for making my day!

Now, for continued focus... I am now down 5.6 pounds in 3 weeks so that means I have 14.4 pounds left to loose in the next 17 weigh ins to make sure that I reach my 20 pounds in 20 weeks! I can definitely do that! Keep chanting or praying or both with me.... 20 in 20! 20 in 20!

Thanks again to all of you that stop by and encourage me on Tuesdays! Keep up the kind words...your support has made a big difference to me in this journey. Some days are hard and I am wanting to make bad choices and I will take the time and go back and read YOUR comments to help me find my resolve! Thank you!
*Update: I just realized that my Tell All Tuesday posts all about my accomplishments fit in with the Tuesday Toot...plus, I just love the name! Anyway, my future Tell All Tuesdays will be Tuesday Toots (ahem)!

Congrats! There's a lot of Tooters blogging about their weight loss. I can't wait to join in on that one. I still have healing to do so it's going to be a few more weeks before I work on the baby weight but you ladies are totally inspiring me!Toot Toot

Congratulations, Natalie! I am so happy to see you getting closer to your goal and it is awesome that someone felt encouraged by you! :) I personally am getting very inspired by my fellow bloggers who I keep seeing lose weight on Weight Watchers.
