NO. FREAKING. WAY!

Today was my weigh in.  I had absolutely no hope for a positive result on the scale - and I was prepared for that.  Today is my 11 year anniversary and there was no way that I was going to let my weigh in ruin it...so, I decided to be mature (rare, people, rare) and resolve not to throw a big fit when things didn't go my way on the scale.

I took my time getting to the scale this morning.  I surfed the net, primped a little, wandered around the house...and then decided it was time.

My husband gave me a final warning before I got on about not ruining our anniversary...I assured him I was not going to let that happen.

I stepped on and....

407.4 lbs.

NO. FREAKING. WAY!!!

I could not believe my eyes.  After the stress filled week I have had, that has resulted in some stress eating...I lost....

4.8 lbs!

Normally, I weigh multiple times to confirm the weight...today I only weighed twice.  Both times, the weight came up the same.  THIS IS REAL!  IMPOSSIBLE!

I am calling this  LUCK O' THE IRISH  in honor of 11 years of marriage!  And I am taking it!  I AM TAKING IT!

My total weight loss...

22.6 lbs.

Yes folks, new pictures are coming soon!

HAPPY WEIGH DAY!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

What a great start to St. Patty's Day AND to the celebration of 11 years married to the man of my dreams...the man PERFECTLY suited to me in every way, shape and form.  I love him with all my heart and am so grateful to have him in my life! Read more about that here.

  6. Connie- Can I just say I love the way you word things?! I've just started my own weight loss journey and have been reading a few blogs for inspiration... yours is not only point but hilarious as well... you're cracking me up.  With the ups and downs... (I had a .4 week three weeks ago- miserable) you are still managing to stay positive.  And thats exactly what I need.  I'll keep following so keep up the amazing work.  WE CAN DO THIS!
