I had my yearly physical today. At last year's physical, I weighed 167 pounds. This year, I weighed 126 pounds. I lost over 40 pounds in a year! The first ten pounds came off with exercise. The last thirty, with Weight Watchers. Forty pounds! Wow, that's a lot. I'm proud of myself but also very relieved. I feel better and I think I look better. This is the slimmest I've been since high school. Actually, I've never been a size 4 before. Even as a teenager, weighing 120-125 lbs, I wore a bigger size. I was actually more curvy in high school than now--post kids. It's really . . . interesting.
Anyway, I'm determined to keep the weight off. Five weeks maintaining with success!
I picked up The New Rules of Lifting for Women (which I *really* like) and I think I may start it in the winter. I'm trying to decide between restarting P90x or this program. One thing I know: I love lifting weight and it's something I will always do.
I found out something else at my physical: I have what's called diastasis recti. Mine is moderate but according to my doctor, only surgery can correct it. I have to say it was kind of a relief to find this out. I has taken the pressure off in that I am certain that it's not that I did or am doing anything wrong or that I'm not doing enough. I discovered the Tupler Technique which supposedly helps to heal diastasis. I'm going to look into it.
