Anywho, I caved and bought a scale today. It was pretty cheap (about $20), but the reviews on Amazon and the Target website were good, so I went with it. I've kind of been wondering if any of this is working. I do find that I've got a bit more energy. I've also noticed something weird - now that I'm eating healthier foods, it takes me a lot longer to eat my meal. Like, yesterday's lunch took me my whole half hour break!!! And it was only a yogurt, an apple, a carrot with hummus and a granola bar.
I am not going to post my *official* weight until tomorrow. But when I weighed myself this evening, my weight was 242. That's 8 FREAKING POUNDS!!! less than what it was at the doctor's office two weeks ago. Brilliant. I am fully aware that weight fluctuates, so if my scale says a higher number in the morning, so be it. It still won't be 250.3. Ever again.
I had started to slip these past few days, just wondering and worrying if this was all working and worth it. It so, so, so is. It's worth it. It's working. I am re-inspired! And I can't wait to go for my walk tomorrow morning, even if it is going to be freezing cold. Nothing can stop me... except freezing rain. I don't do that. =)
