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!
My last few weigh ins have been kind of meh, but this week was a great success. I’m down 1.2 lbs from last week, now at my lowest weight ever of 148.8 lbs. It also marks my 10% goal, i. e. having lost 10% of my original weight since restarting Weight Watchers in May. Overall, I’ve lost 47 lbs since January and 16 lbs since May. I’m quite honestly just happy that my weight is finally reflecting some of the changes I’ve seen in my body. I’ve not been too concerned about the number recently because obviously, how you look and how strong you are is more important than the number, but I’m not going to lie, it is nice finally seeing the number go down again a little.
Things that seem to have worked:
I have Wednesday through Sunday off, so I’m sure I can get in some exercise. I plan on running tomorrow, Thursday and then some time during the weekend. The off days probably will be spent strength training at home. My goal for next week will be to maintain through Thanksgiving. I don’t plan on pigging out but I also don’t plan on restricting myself. Let’s see how that goes.
