I may not be featured in a magazine anytime soon...

Well, at my weigh-in on Monday, I was told by the leader that he is concerned for me. He said he is pleased with my progress (70 pounds!), but the fact that I've done this without gaining is concerning to him. He feels that I will be devastated WHEN I finally have a gain & that it's impossible to get through this without doing so. I have a friend who says my "story" will be more inspiring & relatable to others if I have a gain. I get this. I really do. But, I am dedicated to the plan, am exercising as I should, and following a healthy diet. If the plan works, then why the need to worry about me? If I do gain (and I probably will at some point) I will be sad, but it will not cause me to quit. I was also told that I'm losing at a rate that is higher than average, and if I want to submit my story to a Weight Watcher's magazine, they cannot publish it unless I lose less than 2 pounds per week. That struck me as funny because I had no intention of submitting my story to a magazine, but now I'm intrigued about it...

Honestly, I'm doing the plan as it's designed to be. I guess I'm fortunate that my body responds well to healthy eating & exercise. I am definitely losing much slower than at the beginning. I do think my weekly average will be within their guidelines by the time I hit my goal. It's just hard to hear the negative comments when I'm trying so hard to be so good. Anyhoo, I have to admit that I've been feeling more hunger & cravings for snacks lately & I need to make sure my food choices are healthier. Too many snacks are getting in my way!

My husband has surgery tomorrow to remove a tumor they found in his jaw. He has to have part of his jaw removed & it is supposed to be a really painful recovery. Just praying all goes well for him & trying to keep my stress levels under control. Happy Thursday to you all!
