Losing Weight - Update

Since the beginning of December I have lost 12 lbs.  I am down to 139 lbs. and my goal was 135 lbs.  I'm not sure I can get to 135 lbs. or that I even want to.  Right now I can fit into a lot of clothes that I couldn't fit into before and I am satisfied. 

How did I do it?  Weight Watchers, exercise and just being careful not to over eat.  I have also been eating a lot more fresh fruit.  When I'm hungry I reach for a banana or a clementine orange.  My new goal is maintaining and beefing up the exercise (beefing up is a poor choice of words). 

It was a hard journey.  The first week I gained 1 lb. and then I began to lose 1 lb. or 1 and 1/2 lbs. a week.  I have also lost quite a bit in inches. 

Losing weight is not my favorite thing to do so I will work just as hard to not gain it back.  The best decision I made was to start my weight loss journey before Christmas.  That decision kept me from overeating during the holidays.
