Day 2 of "normal"...

Friday, February 22, 2013

As I crawled out of bed this morning, I knew I wanted to face the scale and see if somehow I had dreamed that my weight has gotten into the BMI "normal" range. On top of that, my DW and I went out for a celebratory dinner last night at one of the better restaurants in town, and while I did not go overboard by any stretch of the imagination (brought my usual 1/2 of dinner home for another meal), I wondered if the scale would "punish" me (back to my blog on the love/hate relationship with the scale!). Thankfully, no punishment! At the exact same weight (178.4) as yesterday morning!!


There were two reasons for the celebratory dinner: Hitting my weight goal was one, but also to celebrate my DW getting a new job! Her interview went so well yesterday that the hiring manager made an offer on the spot! I am SO proud of her, and this will certainly make a positive impact on our family budget! She starts next Tuesday...

It takes a while to get used to being at a normal weight. I remember worrying about edging back over goal weights just after I crossed them. I didn't, but that didn't stop me from worrying.
