That is what the scale said this morning when I stepped on.
That is a loss this week of
Total weight lost is
To say that I feel relieved that the nasty plateau I have been on has broken would be an understatement.
The anticipation of this weigh in was overwhelming. I did not think I could take another disappointment on the scale. Last night I woke up several times. I had butterflies. I had weird, freaky dreams...I mean WEIRD FREAKY DREAMS. Finally, at 7:00 am I woke my husband up so we could get the weigh in over with. I made him weigh in first - he lost 4.2 lbs - pretty impressive - and a hard act to follow.
It was my turn. I stood there for a minute, mentally preparing myself for whatever happened, and then I took the plunge. When I saw the number flash up I thought it was a mistake. I got off, repositioned the scale and weighed again. SAME RESULT.
It was true!
Does my craziness regarding weigh in seem to indicate I have a problem - probably - but this morning I could care less.
I am so happy to see progress, results...to have whittled 265 down to 247.2.
OH WHAT A FEELING!
Thanks to all of you who have encouraged me through the very difficult last couple of weeks. Honestly, it has made such a difference to have a cheering section, to get advice...and just simply to have you all say "I know you can do it".
