I have purposely not been stepping on the scale for quite a while. I just find that it derails me when I'm doing all the right things, then the scale doesn't reflect the effort I'm putting in. So the last time I was on the scale was at my last doctor appointment, about six months ago.
Went back to the doctor today, and I decided to see what the scale had to say. I'd lost about 15 pounds. I'd like to point out, that last weigh-in was in July. I was likely wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops. And today I was wearing jeans, a long-sleeved top, and big clunky snow boots. Plus I'd just eaten. (Though I have no recollection of when I'd eaten last when I weighed six months ago.)
Anyway, I expected balloons and fanfare, or at least a comment from the doctor. I got nothing. But that's okay. I know I'm doing well, and maybe that's good enough.
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
