Weight loss victory and relief: My weigh in results

Caped MaxI fight with my dog over food.  I take stuff that I put into the garbage out if it looks clean.  I try and hide food from myself but always seem to find it.  Oh yes, I am in the battle for weight loss.  The good news is that I am doing great right now.  I weighed in last night.  This was the first time that I have went 1 month between weigh-ins.  It was tough, it was discouraging, and it was scary.  I went anyway though.  When I stepped on the scale the lady told me to get off because she wasn’t done with my sister who weighed before.  At that moment I saw a special glimpse of the first 2 numbers in my weight.  What a relief, what a victory.  I ended up losing 3.8 lbs. which put me at a present weight loss of 122 lbs.  My goal is to be 185 and under for my maintenance.  I weighed 185.  I really want to be in the 170’s, but it is more realistic to be at <185.  What a relief.  I was pretty freaked out!

    3.8 lb loss??? YOU TOTALLY ROCK!!! That is so sweet. On top of that, it was your first monthly WI. I have been going every week, although I may miss this week, and I have to admit even contemplating moving to monthly WI is giving me the chills! Way to go!
