I lied to Weight Watchers

Appearently I have hit a new low....

I joined Weight Watchers on line on Friday...I had to imput my weight...I could have waited until Monday to set everything up but the food whore I am wanted my "offical" weigh-in day to be Friday...that way if I blow my diet on Friday by say drinking a few to many glasses of wine or pigging out on a slice or two of oh so delicious Pizza Hut pizza I have all week to adjust (A.K.A eat bowls of the 0 point Cabbage soup to make up for my gluttony)

So it asked me to imput my weight - so I typed in a number that i thought was correct...ha ha ha - when I got on the scale on Saturday morning I realized I was wrong...not by much, only 2 lbs over what I typed in...but still I LIED TO AN ONLINE PROGRAM....

I found it interesting that based on my height that I should be between 115 and 135 lbs...OMG are they freakin insane...If I weighed 115 I would probably look like this....

and I don't know about you - but skin and bones just doesn't appeal to me...A woman needs curves....a woman needs a little flesh....an woman needs to look like she isn't going to break in half if a stiff wind comes her way...

Even 135 Lbs is a little mind-blowing for me...I have always been heavy - all through my childhood - even with being very active in sports - heck every summer I rode my bike 2 miles to the swimming pool, swam all day and then rode 2 miles back home and yet I was still heavy...granted I wasn't exactly eating the most healthy things...but I wasn't sitting on my butt watching TV or playing video games either...

The summer between my Junior and Senior year in High School I weighed over 200 lbs and thought enough was enough and joined Physicans Weight Loss Center - I did Ok and lost over 50lbs which put me at about 160 lbs or so and I looked good!!!! - to me I looked skinny and with my body shape (short and curvy) the lbs set well with me

I managed to keep most of it off throughout college...mainly the walking all over campus to get anywhere canceled out the copious amounts of alcohol I drank...even after college though I gained back about 10-15 lbs I was still fairly happy with my body...

Then I got married....then I worked awful jobs at awful times (2nd shift while going to grad school full-time)...then I had babies....

My body fell apart...I have a nice huge twin skin sack of a belly...I have these two flabs of back fat...and my ass, well I am starting to think I need to get those little "beep...beep" things for when I back up...

So anyway after laughing after the 115 - 135 lb range I am "suppose" to be at - I overrid the goal weight and put in the weight that I felt I could obtain and KEEP (the most important of all - a weight to KEEP)...I don't care what the scale says per se...what I really want to do is walk into a store and buy a pair of size 8 Levi jeans...is that too much to ask...a size 8....To let everyone in on what I wear now....a Size 14/16 - depending on Brand/Type and % of stretch material in said item - far more 16's then 14's....

I don't have delusions...I don't care to ever be a Size 2 or a Size 4...quite frankly I think I would look ridiculous...but I do want a single digit number - SIZE 8 ...

so that is my goal....a Size 8 pair of Levi's Jeans.....

What's Yours?....

14's - that's my goal. To correctly fit into 14's. Also, as for weight - I'm all about finding something I can maintain.

Jen said...

I to am trying to lose weight. Im going for size 7. I figure it is a reasonable size since I'm only 5'1.

Heather said...

For me its 10, I made it to 12 before but I'd like to own just one thing in a size 10 that fits!

I would love to be an 11, but I will happily settle for 14. That is the last size I remember being really confident at. Not thin, not fat, but comfy...I'm 5'7", so I think that is reasonable...

That is simply a horrifying picture. Horrible....horrible. I close my eyes and see it on the backs of my eyelids. I'll probably dream about it tonight. I better go out and have a few glasses of wine and some cheese to make myself feel better!

I'm doing a mix of things, but Eating for Life for food. Today is my cheat day, whoo hoo!
