Wow- What a loss
Let's just say I was expecting a loss but not such a big one. Of course I spent the whole day prior hugging the porcelain god and couldn't even keep down any water. So I guess I should have been surprised when I saw the 6 lb weight loss this morning. I contemplated whether or not turn in that loss for the challenge since next week I am sure that I will be up, but alas I wanted to see my name up near the top of the list. Even if it is only for a time. Let me just tell you how beautiful that number on the scale was this morning. I haven't seen that number in quite awhile, atleast 8-9 months. Since I was home alone today I took some time to take my body measurements and look at my past measurements. I was struck by how long I have been overweight. I have been 30-60 lbs over my ideal weight for the last 9 years. I didn't realize it had been that long since I had been at my ideal weight. It was a real eye opener. I always say I want to lose weight. The scale will go down a few pounds....I will get comfortable... the scale will go up a few more... and so my weight has been climbing for the last 10 years. I have had a few spots of weight loss but nothing major. I want things to be different this time. I have been so inspired by so many people this year. I am hoping that their accomplishments will motivate me to make a difference. I believe that this month long weight loss challenge is helping me start to reach my goal of being a thinner, healthier me!
