It’s official; I just weighed myself, and have officially lost 20 lbs. Now, even if I regain throughout the day or have a bad day I can still say that I’ve lost 20 lbs. I’ve never don’t that in my life. I never even imagined that I would. This means new pictures soon!
Despite the fact that I post my weight once a week, the reality is that I weigh myself almost every day now, except for on the weekend. I still like to have some slightly more dramatic change on Mondays since it is official. I’m allowing myself on the scale that often for a few reasons. The first is that I’m trying so many new foods that I want to see how some of them effect me on a daily basis and what might cause bloating or something like that. I also take a strange savage pleasure in seeing the scale temporarily go up after I’ve drunk a bottle of water or when I can tell that I am a bit swollen. I think that this might be one of the ways that I am learning to deal with scale fluctuations. If I can handle seeing the scale move up a little because of that bottle of water, it feels less devastating when I see it up on a Monday and I can know that I’m still bloated from my period.
This morning, though, I was so nicely tricked! I thought I would be up a pound or so and instead I see that I’ve finally completed that lovely 20 lbs lost. I also found that I woke up to the wrong alarm clock and that I can go back to sleep for a few hours
