I haven’t reviewed my 43 things for a long time and the first thing that strikes me is that I actually HAVE lost weight. I’m happier than I’ve been for a few years, which helps. And I’m doing Weight Watchers online, which really works for me. In fact, I’ve kinda reached my “ordinary” weight loss goal, which is to get back to the size I’ve been for most of my grownup life.
And it was so easy, and I’m eating so healthily, and feeling so happy about myself, that I’ve decided to set another goal completely: to get slim. To get my weight somewhere around the lower half of the “normal” range for my height. I’ve never been thin â€“ my family had a really unhealthy lifestyle when I was a kid â€“ but I realize now there’s no reason I couldn’t be.
Which, unfortunately, means I’ll have to lose as much weight again, and then some. But I’m not in a hurry.
