And the Scale Says.....
Monday, January 19, 2009
Well, I did pretty good...I had told myself I wouldn't weigh myself for 2 weeks after kicking off on this weight loss journey, which would have been today...but I couldn't wait any longer yesterday and just hopped right on that scale! I stepped on...looked straight ahead...took a deep breath...and dreadingly looked down. When I did...I was soooooooo glad!!! That scale became my best friend! LoL I am officially down 9lbs!!!!!! I know it sounds crazy, but I walked around yesterday feeling like I'd lose 50lbs! :) How crazy is that?? It's amazing how losing any amount of weight can make a person feel as though they are walking on air, isn't it?? It was also that moment were I said to myself, "I CAN do this!! Now I really, really want to keep this going!!" I felt like a whole new person the entire rest of the day...well I still do. LoL
I can do this...I just hope I have what it takes to stick with it this time. I know that I am fed up with what I see in the mirror...and I am even more fed up with how I feel. I feel at times like I'm trapped in my own body and I'm screaming to get out - and I hate it! I just want to actually accomplish this weight loss issue this time. I want to do it, to show myself that I really can do it, and then keeping it off won't be so difficult. If I can manage to lose 160 lbs. on my own, with the help of excellent friends of course, then I can do just about anything, right??? When I see that number though, it makes me wonder how or if I'll ever be able to do that, but I can't say it's impossible. I've seen others in my shoes do the very same thing, so I known it can happen - I just have to do it! But for now - I am extremely happy with my results from the first 2 weeks!! I plan to enjoy this accomplishment and just keep on going the best that I can!!!
