i am soooooooo happy and proud to post that i have my scale back and i am weighing in at 362 today! it's amazing what seeing the numbers go down can do for your mindset as well as your body.
i am not sure why but rather than losing say a consistent 2-3 pounds a week my body does this thing where i will lose like 4-6 pounds and then won't lose anything for 2 weeks or i will gain a lb or two and then a week later, lose again. don't get me wrong i am super super excited, esp. when i see those 4, 5, 6 pound losses on the scale but wow--i am going to gray premature as a result :) there is definately something about seeing the actual numbers to KNOW that your hard work has paid off.
i know there are lots of other markers, i can walk up the stairs at work without getting winded, if i don't wear a belt certain pairs of pants slide off me, etc. but there is definately something about seeing those numbers drop down.
for the first time in probably my adult life i am narrowing in on the 350's and wow what an amazing feeling it is! i WILL get there!!!!
