Weigh-In ... It's Finally Working!

Todays weight:  224
Loss this week:  - 2.5
Total loss so far:  7 lbs.

I was so scared to weigh in this morning.  I even text'd my best friend last night (who is also working on losing weight) and told her that I was not looking forward to weighing in this morning.  

When I thought more about it I realized that I was scared to weigh in because stepping on that scale knowing that I'm going to post about it makes me accountable for what the scale says.  If I weigh myself and don't tell anyone what it said, then it doesn't matter if I am making progress or not.  I know this is a stem of my fear of failure that I regularly battle in my mind. 

The weak side of me regretted telling anyone I was working on losing weight, but deep inside I knew it's the accountability that I probably need to get/keep me on track.  It was the "oh-well-you're-doing-your-best-and-I-love-you-anyway" attitude with no results that got me up to 231 pounds.  

Having said that I have to admit that I was thrilled!! I was hoping to be down even one pound and I was down over two.  It's working..it's finally working!!  


  1. WhooHoo!!!! Yay Leah....I'm so happy for you. That's great.
    I have felt the same way about not telling people unitl I hit 200. But hopefully by that time they would of noticed 21 lbs off of me.
    Keep it up! Your doing great.

  2. Oh I'm so excited!!! You're doing great and I can't wait to see the final results! Soon - oh so soon those pants are going to be falling off!!!!!
