The Crazy Suburban Mom: From there to here...

From there to here...

Haven't done a Weekly Wednesday Weight Watcher update in forever and I didn't want you guys to think I quit.

I've been helicoptering around my 'there' number for quite sometime on purpose.  There is a psychological number that for ages I didn't think I'd get under... but if I did I'd eat non-stop until I was ten pounds over it.

I was there maybe eight times in the last ten years for about a minute and a half.  I never considered there my real weight; I considered there a weight I couldn't reach....So I could never stay there.

I got there about January of this year and decided to just hover for a while and get used to seeing it.   Sort of stay unmoving until there became here.

 I don't weigh in a lot.  They tolerate me at Weight Watchers.  They are very kind.   Anyway, I weighed in today  because I thought it was my one year anniversary of going - which it wasn't - it's next week but this is the first time I'm below there, so I guess there is here now.

FYI...  Here isn't goal...

And to anyone who has no idea what I just said.  I'm so sorry.

That's awesome, Tracy! And I do know exactly what you mean. My
there number seems like a dream right now and I'm aiming to just get back to my "uh oh I better knock off the snacking" number...

Even us men have the same problem. I am at my there number but want to go lower. Need more exercise.

I've never done weight watchers, but doesnt mean I shouldnt! :) I understand what you mean.. i have been obsessed with my.. WISH weight for years.. and am still trying to get there! Congrats on making your "there"!

I understand. You should stop worrying about the # and congratulate yourself for what you have accomplished. Just my 2 cents.

I love when there becomes here! in most anything. with my ankle there is "walking up the stairs without it hurting" or, with my hand there is "not having to worry about how I'm holding hands with my husband", my there for weight is not really a weight it's more of a size, and as soon as I'm whole I hope to start my journey to there.

and I get why you didn't tell/admit that you were "there" till it became "here" sometimes we can jinx ourselves if only in our own minds.

I totally get it. Totally. I have been here, there, and everywhere on WW for the last 10 years!

I understand what you said. I used to go to TOPS but gave up with being "there". I got under "there" after I quit. I'm still "there" but not way under "there" like I should be.

I hate the "number". I think you have to just know when you are the right weight. I have been about the same weight most of my adult life, but that doesn't go without a daily battle to stay there. I'm up now and I can feel it. I don't need the scale to tell me I need to lose 5-10 lbs, although we do commiserate each morning about it.

Congratulations! I think you are wise though, hovering around a healthy weight rather than obsessing about it is healthier....and more enjoyable. Being a slave to the scale is no way to live.
