The Truth Of Tuesday Night

I had severe reservations about the scales this week.  I did poorly with food choices...too many cookies and muffins and ice cream.  But I held my head high and headed to my meeting anyway!

Today was probably one of those days when I SHOULD have bought a lottery ticket.

First off, this morning I found out I won a give away on Facebook, which rocked my world and I will share more about it once I get the item in hand.  Then, it was a beauty day outside and I was able to get in a bit of a walk in the fresh air.  Tonight I stepped on the scale and witnessed a Christmas miracle I tell ya!  By jove if the scale wasn't down!

Last week: 240.50 lbs
This week: 239.75 lbs

-0.75 lbs

I honestly can't even put into words how excited I was to see this!  For so many reason.  One being that I didn't mess up as bad as I thought and it put me in a good mind set to face this upcoming week with success. Two...I am at a new lowest weight!  I have never been under 240 (well, I am sure at SOME point in my life I was, but you know what I mean!)  From now on, with each new loss, I will continue to hit new milestones.  It feels incredible!  I never actually thought it would matter that much, but I went from not thinking I would ever be able to accomplish this feat in front of me, to seeing it as a real possibility!

I plan to have hubby take pictures of me this week so I can start seeing the difference myself.  I can feel my body changing...my waist feels smaller...bonier even and a bit more "loose" when I lay down.  My uncle was down last week and mentioned to my mom the next day how much of a difference he could notice.

I tell ya, as a fat girl my ENTIRE life, it's nice to finally feel successful.

So, my goal for this week is to stay spot on for my calorie intake and exercise.  If I can manage to do this, I should see results again on the scale.
