Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
You wanna know what’s awesome? THIS GIRL is awesome!
I weighed in at Weight Watchers this morning and despite Wednesday’s dinner, Thursday’s museum extravaganza and Sunday’s banana chocolate crepes, I managed to lose 1.4 lbs. I’m now almost back to my all-time low of early August. I’m currently at 151.4 lbs. Only about another 20 lbs away from my goal weight. I had a “skinny moment” yesterday when I looked at myself in the mirror and just felt slimmer and leaner. Running is definitely paying off. I can see and feel it in my glutes and quads. I’m always trying not to get my hopes up whenever I have a skinny moment because I know the scale can be tricky, but I’m glad my feeling was right and I lost a good amount of weight.
They’re apparently scouting new people for the Weight Watchers magazine to share their success story. One of the staff members asked me whether I’d like to leave my contact information and then took a couple of pictures. She did this of pretty much everybody, so who knows whether they’ll pick me, but if they did, it would be kinda awesome. Me in a magazine, professional styling, horrible Before Picture (I have a bunch!) et all. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
Tonight I’m finally getting my hair cut. I’m excited.
