Alright...*deep breath*...my starting out weight is:
I knew it was going to be around that, I half expected it to be 270 because that's what the scale said last time I got on it in my bathroom a week ago. My first mini goal is to lose 5% which works out to be 13 lbs.
According to the book they gave us, for my height (5'9") my healthy weight ranges are:
Minimum joining weight is 140 lbs (this is saying that in order to qualify to join WW you have to need to lose at least 5 lbs so if I weighed 135lbs then I couldn't join)
Minimum weight: 135
Maximum weight: 169
When I was in high school I fluctuated from 170-175 and still felt fat so I'm hoping to be somewhere around 160 but Josh (my hubby) thinks I'll look gross that small. BUT, that's coming from the guy that likes some meat on a girls bones! :O) I honestly could care less what the scale said (except I want desperately to be under 200 lbs) , as long as I like what I see and I feel good.
So there we have it...my starting out point!!! I'm armed with the tools & support I need and I'm ready to get going!
My daily POINTS target is 34 (whoa, that seems like a lot) and I get 35 allowance points a week. I'll update this weekly (at least) to show my progress (or lack of...hope not) and pass on what I'm learning about the program and myself! Thanks for riding along with me! :)
Now I need to go take a "before" picture and someday I'll post it on here....maybe once I've reached my 10% goal so we can do a picture to compare!
