Default Annnnnnndddd....WHOOSH!

So I've been noticing that this last ten pounds has taken me quite a while. I've been patient with it because I know that 90 percent of it is me going off plan here and there on the many "special occasions" we've had in the last 6 weeks. But I also knew that despite those, the weight was coming off a little slower than it probably should have in an ideal 3500-calorie-deficit-equals-one-pound-loss kind of world.

For about the last six days I have weighed in every morning at 220. It was taunting me. "Hey, Eumie! You're not gonna make it to the twoteens! You CAN'T and WON'T!" But I just kept on.

Today I weighed in at...

(insert brass fanfare here)


217!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It makes you feel a little sometimes, doesn't it?!

YAYYYYYYYY! Way to rock it! I SO hear you about things coming off slowly. I take full responsibility -- I know I am not doing what needs to be done to hit goal. Plain and simple!

WOWZA! Way to say GUH-BYE to the 220's. You are solidly in the teens now--not just a flicker on the scale.

Indeed. I think taking full responsibility for my weight loss results will probably be the difference between this being THE time, and just being another attempt.

Thanks so much!
