This morning at Weight Watchers, I weighed 1.6 pounds less than last time (two weeks ago). That brings my total weight loss since Jan. 2, 2009 to 15.2 pounds.

That also means that I got another 5 pound sticker at the meeting. WHEE! I feel really silly for being so excited about a little yellow star with a 5 in the middle of it. But seriously, it’s a great feeling!


When I get to work on Monday, I’ll add two more paperclips to the chain of paperclips I have hanging near my desk to represent the weight I’ve lost. One paperclip for each pound. When I feel tempted, I find myself looking at the paperclip chain and trying to make healthier choices. It’s funny how small visual reminders can help me stay on track.
