They say a picture is worth a thousand words and in this case, I agree.

Not the best picture I know but it works. (excuse the horrible excuse for a pedicure...LOL) And the cool thing about this weight is it was mid-afternoon, not my normal weigh in time of first thing in the morning. I have been working really hard to not obsess over my weight because I have been stuck on a plateau for like 8 or 10 weeks bouncing back and forth between 201 and 205. As part of not allowing myself to obsess, I haven't been weighing every morning like normal, only like 2 or 3 times a week. So today, I thought "I haven't weighed since like Monday". So I stepped on the scale and I had this wonderful surprise. Talk about the coolest Christmas gift.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't physically feel any different today than I did Monday when the scale said 201.6 but the "emotional" part of me is....ELATED!!!! The last time I can remember having a "1" in front of my weight was when I was 14 and a freshman in high school around 1993 or 94. That was over half my lifetime ago. It took me half of my freakin' lifetime to kick this weights butt but i did it. I did it. I flippin' did it. NEVER again in my whole life will I have a 2 in front of my weight. Thank you all for your continued support as I defeat this battle for my health and well-being, as much emotionally as physically.
