After last week’s gain, I was not optimistic about this week’s weigh in. I figured I’d get on the scale and have lost what I’d gained last week.
Have you figured out that when I start out a post with an expectation, it’s usually because the opposite happened?
I got on the scale after shedding my maxi skirt and extra tank top as I have for the last few weeks. I stepped on the scale, and I saw something I haven’t seen since 2007.
There was a ONE at the beginning of my weight number. A FREAKING ONE!!!
I saw 199.6!!!
That puts my total weight loss at 85.5 pounds so far, which according to ILostWhat.com is the same as 4 lemurs.
It has been a red-letter week over here, with my “New You” contest win, a 5.8 pound loss, and hitting Onederland (get it? Because my weight starts with a 1?)
There’s three days left of the school year, and I have a lot of packing to do… but at least I know that moving my stuff OUT will be easier than moving my stuff IN. There’s 85 pounds less of me, and I’m tons stronger…in more ways than one!
