Weigh in success!

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Today was weigh-in day.

It has been 3 weeks since my last weigh in at the doctors office -- sounds like going to confession...forgive me for I have sinned -it has been 3 weeks since my last weigh in...3 weeks ago saturday I ate too many m&ms, and cookies....on and on and on.) My perpetual penance is: Put down the cookies, pick up the weights and get moving.

I digress. When I approach the dreaded scale emoticon it was with much trepidation...I have been good, all but that last mentioned transgression but we won't go there. Shhh it never happened ..or did it? Anyhow I was apprehensive to say the least. So gingerly I tip-toed onto the scale emoticon As I waited for IT to calculate I kept thinking...Please, Please, Please let it move from before, show me that being diligent really does pay off. Still watching in either eager anticipation or dread I watched the scrolling lines stop. I have lost 6 POUNDS!!!
What joy!! after 3 months of virtually no movement my weight actually went down.
I am absolutely ecstatic!!

Now I know that the scale should not be my only measure so I did just that..I measured..just my waist, hips, neck and wrist and I "misplaced" nearly 3 inches! emoticon (I refuse to measure my saggy chest) Not bad emoticon My BMI also went down and over the course of 3 weeks my glucose levels are somewhat 'normal' despite reducing my medications and actually not taking the one. emoticon Truly a reason to celebrate. emoticon

And to make the morning absolutely wonderful, I went to my sparkpage and what to my wondering eyes did appear..a comment that said "congratulations on being the DONE PAGE OF THE MONTH!!! emoticon

Now how great is that?! emoticon emoticon A fabulous start to my day (and month) emoticon emoticon emoticon
