The scale

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Well, I weighed myself this morning. I was trying to wait until Tuesday which will be one week from the last weigh in. Weekly. That's how often we're supposed to do it.

Before joining this sight I hadn't weighed myself in at least a year. I didn't want to know. I knew it was getting worse and worse and I knew that I would be horrified. I joined the site in the morning and guessed at my starting weight. That evening when I got home, I decided to find out the real number and I was actually 13 pounds heavier than I had guessed. That was shocker. And yes, I was horrified.

It motivated me to work extra hard and stay focused on the end reward. The reward is feeling like my old self again.

After achieving so much success my first week, I couldn't wait to see if it was still working. To see if it was real or my imagination. I won't post the latest number because I still have to get through the holiday weekend. But as of today it's real. And I'm really happy about it!

    I do not measure my success on the scale (although weight loss does matter to me) but what matters the most is being and feeling healthy.

    Keep up the great work and celebrate all the victories.
