Another Loss.

Lost .4 pounds this week. And that means I've now lost 10% of my body weight. Weight Watchers is big on the 10%, it's like your first major goal on the plan. They talk about all the health benefits of losing 10% of your weight..."By losing just 10 percent of your body weight, you can lower your cholesterol and reduce your blood pressure". I guess that would be true for 5% or 15% but they like the 10% and make a big deal out of it. I got a silver key chain, which I put my 16 week charm on. They give you a charm at 16 weeks because they say coming to meetings for 16 weeks really establishes it as a habit and shows you are committed. Anyway, I like the support and clapping and motivation I get from the meetings.

So, now I'm 10.6 pounds away from my "must exercise" weight. I'm thinking about joining a gym near my house that I once belonged to.

In other news....I may have a job offer in Hawaii by the end of the week! I'm freaking out! I've wanted to move back to Hawaii (went to undergrad at UH) for a while now but now that it might happen I'm scared! We'll see. Maybe I'll be posting from the beach soon
