GOAL! & Ten On Tuesday!

I made my Weight Watcher's goal tonight. A total of 35.8 pounds lost since I started the program last October.

I'm tickled and just a touch unnerved, because now the focus shifts and I have to learn to maintain the weight loss.

So, I have a new goal: I'm going to walk a 5K on June 6 with my Weight Watchers' friends. (At least I'm going to try, since walking plays havoc with my back. But I've been doing a little more each week, so we'll see how it goes)

So...moving right along, Carole has a list of her favorite magazines as her "Ten on Tuesday" topic today. So I thought I'd join her and give you mine (even tho' I don't really *do* the 10 on Tues lists anymore, I liked her idea!). So here goes:
1. Weight Watchers Magazine (I can't help it, it's a great motivator)
2. Yoga Journal (I love this, tho' recently I've just been rereading my old subscription issues, as it seems my mind is a sieve and everything *old* is new again...I must have a serious case of CRS)
3. The Knitter (single copy price, b/c I can't afford it otherwise!)
4. Interweave Knits (tho' some times I just want to knash my teeth over the trendiness)
5. Rowan Magazine (I love it, but I don't always buy it - still that could change)
6. Piecework (same here, I adore it, but I only buy issues with knitting these days)
7. AARP Magazine (comes with the membership - this month's cover is Dr. OZ!)
8. Vegetarian Times (tho' again, I'm rereading old subscriptions right now)
9. Where Women Create (eye candy - pure and simple - I should be so lucky to have the studios these gals do!)
10. Country Living (I preferred Country Home, but it's gone - yes, I have some old issues of both magazines, actually)

These days, I'm spending less money and time on the paper journals. I adore Knitty and I adore Twist Collective.

But I'll take a good photo-rich magazine to bed any night!

I'm going to have to copy this list and investigate. I used to like Country Home, too. Funny how magazines subscriptions reflect the periods of our lives. I've had Mother Earth News periods, gardening magazines, crafts, writing, decorating, parenting periods...all reflected in my magazine choices. Currently, I love the knitting ones.

Congratulations on reaching your weight loss goal!

Very good list of magazines too. I buy different knitting magazines on an issue-by-issue basis, as for me that is less expensive. I do subscribe to Martha Stewart Living. I'm not a Martha devotee, but it is well-produced, and there is usually something I like to read and look at in each issue. And the subscription rates are only a dollar or two an issue.

Contrats on making your goal!!!!
How exciting for you.
Now you can seriously shop for clothes, and really, GET RID of the old ones. There's nothing like not having a stitch to wear to motivate you to stay at your goal~!
You should be very proud of yourself.

yay! YAY! yay! so proud of you. I've been slacking big time trying to find a new meeting to attend. I haven't gained any back but my pace has slowed to a crawl! ;<

Anyway, so so proud of YOU! hugs.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
