I bought a scale!

Ok, so this is no big deal to most, but to me, it’s a great ordeal. See..I’ve always have been terrified of the scale, because it has always been the source of depression, binge eating, and food hoarding. Since beginning my weight loss journey, I’ve actually just had a rough guesstimate of my actual weight. I was weighed about a year ago as part of a health activity at work, and that was my first known weight since I hit my teens. That was 280, that’s what I’ve been going by. After a year of a poor diet of chicken wings, butter, fat, Reeses, and Mt.Dew, I could have actually been heavier than my known weight.

Yes, pathetic I know.

But, today, I bought a scale. And…drumroll please….

I weigh..

276!

And I’m happy about it.
And I’m happy to now be able to accurately see my progress.

I could have easily hit 300 before I started this lifestyle change. I will never know.

But I still won’t weigh myself daily. Never.
