Weigh-In ... Smile

Today's Weight: 179 . 0
Loss/Gain: -2 . 0
Total Loss So Far: - 52 . 0 lbs.

When I looked at the scale I smiled. No jumping and leaping for joy, just a smile that said, "Yes, I am back down." I also got a bit nervous that I won't stay under 180, but decided that I wasn't going to dwell on the negative.

I speak with the "faith of a mustard seed" when I say that I will keep losing and even be in the 170's from now on...until I reach the 160's and on and on.

Thank you for all your kinds words of encouragement and wisdom on last week's weigh-in post. This is what I love about blogging - the community of people who are my support group through this weight loss journey. I tell my friends blogging is my Weight Watchers meeting of sorts. It's a place I can come and talk about my failures and victories and know that there are
people out there who can relate and support me, even if it sounds silly to someone else. :)

Have a good weekend! We have yard work and some cleaning to do, maybe a soccer game, extra ballet rehearsals for a performance in a week and some book reading in there as well.

Until Monday....


  1. AWESOME!!! Don't worry about tomorrow, it will take care of itself. Enjoy the moment and keep moving forward!!! Happy Day!

  2. Good for you! With everything you've got going on, a loss is fantastic. Here's to hopefully never seeing the 180s again (and if you do, hopefully it will only be for a moment)

  3. 52 pounds! That is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have a pretty day!

  4. The end of the school year gets so busy! You are doing great.

  5. The word-verification was so funny for the comment I just sent you: "duorear" -- Defined - what I am getting when I eat too much and stop exercising.
