It was 16 weeks ago today...

that I joined Weight Watchers. And to commemorate this milestone, I was given the "perseverance" charm -- a pair of hands in applause with "16" etched on there. I just need a gold chain to put it on.

And I lost another 3 pounds even, for a total of 37.8 lbs. That's a pretty good weight loss, and gets me back on track for "Laboring for 40."

However, let me give you a small caveat: I don't recommend the Migraine Method of weight loss (being just too damn sick to eat). I had a hellacious migraine Sunday evening that stretched on into Monday. I remember waking up starving somewhere around 10:45 Sunday night -- I had been asleep for about 3 hours then. I still had 15 points left over, but I satisfied my hunger with 2 pieces of dry white toast (which was all I really wanted anyway). Oh yeah, and a teensy Weight Watchers candy bar. How warped is that? So I ended up with a 10 point deficit for that day -- really 14 if you take the earned activity points into account. Again, that's not a normal way to do things, and it's definitely not recommended....

As you might guess, I'm beaming from ear to ear. Just 2.2 pounds to go for 40 and for my next CD to add to the collection: Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. I can't wait!!!!

Oh, and the other good news. I'm now officially over 35 pounds. My clothes should not be altered, because it would cost more and be more labor-intensive to alter them than to buy new ones. Gotta find good cheap pants now!!! I figure why pay good money on pants (like the ones currently in my possession, now unalterable) if I'm going to continue to lose weight (and I am!). So the search begins!
