Weigh In Day!!!
I weigh every week at my Sister's house on her scale. Why is that you ask, because I don't want the temptation to weigh every day. I think that can create an obsession and can cause a mood change for the day, if I see something I don't like. I focus on my weight loss battle all week and look at the results every Friday morning.
I was sooooo nervous to weigh today. After the past two weekends I've had and the obstacles I've faced at every turn this week, I just knew I hadn't lost anything. In fact, I think for the first time since I started this journey, I closed my eyes while the scale was calculating. When I opened them and saw my new weight I was ecstatic!!! 252!!! That's a 4.5 lb weight loss this week. Are you kidding me?!?!?!? I'm on cloud nine.
I have been a part of a challenge on www.jillianmichaels.com, which was to lose 10% of your body weight by Halloween. I had 27.9 lbs to lose when I started the challenge. So I have one week and only .9 lbs to go to meet the goal. Yeah!!! I'm so proud of myself!! I'm realizing that it really is about working through the yucky stuff within us, pushing through and coming out a winner on the other side. I tell myself all the time, baby steps. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and it will all work out.
