scale is fixed and i am back in the game. 350's here i come!

Monday, October 12, 2009

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!!!!

    I'd love to weigh every 2 weeks but with the team challenges I am doing a weekly weigh in is required. Believe me though, if it wasn't I would definately do every 2 weeks :)

    Maybe you could only weigh yourself every two weeks so you wont have to notice the ups and downs, just the big drop!!

    You are doing awesome, 350 here you come!!
