Snowy Saturday

Winter has hit the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) full force today. I had to clear about 3 inches of snow off my car before I could leave to go to WW this morning. I'm only 5 feet tall which means I can't reach to the middle of my windshields without leaning right across my car - I was frozen and feeling very snowmanish by the time I was done.

The weigh in was good. I was down 2.5 lbs. The receptionist said I lost 3.5 and I was thrilled to bits, but when I got to my car and did the math, it's actually only 2.5 which brings my weight to 204.3. Closer and closer to Onederland. I was really disappointed at first but the wonderful Tiffany reminded me that 2.5 is an excellent loss. I also reminded myself that last week's loss was a bonus because I had really eaten badly the days leading up to it, so 6 lbs in two weeks is actually pretty awesome. Also, there was no exercise at all this week.

I had hoped to get a run in today but unless I can convince myself to treadmill it  - its not happening. Funnily enough I had a snowshoeing class scheduled for this morning and the company cancelled it yesterday afternoon due to "lack of snow". I don't know if there would have been enough packed snow to actually do it today - but I thought it was funny. I'm hoping to still be able to do that this Winter.

I love all of the different classes and activities you try. You've inspired me too look for a local snowshoeing class so thank you. As for you loss, glad to see you've come around to appreciating it. I personally think its a pretty huge loss as is. And I cannot BELIEVE how close you are to onederland! I live in the GTA too but in a student basement apartment + since I'm pretty short as well I can't see outside. I'm glad you mentioned the snow because nothing makes me more grumpy then heading upstairs expecting it to be nice and being blasted with a wall of snow! xx

6 lb in two weeks kicks butt! Great work!

We're getting the weakling version of your snow - about an inch, now mixing with rain. Still managed to get a 3 mile fast dog walk in between the flakes and drops.

Congratulations on the loss! That's fantastic. You're really doing great and keeping me inspired. Look out Onederland - new inhabitant getting close. And thanks for you kind support Enz - I really appreciate you! :)

Awesome loss! I'm not sure what the penalties are for not going to a WW meeting, but clearing off snow to get there...that is dedication.

Fantastic loss! It's always a good idea to check the math as I've often found math mistakes on my tracker.
