Default What the fish just happened?!

Ok, so I told you guys how I finally got off my plateau after like 2 freakin years.
So, I've been checking my weight and the weight that I've been stuck in the 170's for 2 years....like going up and down 173-4-8....

I checked my weight like 2 weeks ago and I finally lost about 4 lbs and was down to 170! I was soooo pumped!!! I couldn't believe I finally lost after all this time and finally got off that damn plateau.

So, anyway I've been a little under the weather (sore throat, headache)
so I went to the doctor today,
first thing she did was check my weight.
I expected 170 obviously because it's been that way for like a week, and I hadn't been working out cause I wasn't feeling well, and I've been eating ice cream because of finals and my aunt was over and my house is jampacked with people who are all up in my personal space (ANYWHO....)

Doctor checked the scale. What did it say? tell me.

1-freakin-fifty-nine

159!!!!

I AM SHOCKED.

All this time I thought I was 170.

How the fish did I completely skip the 160's without even knowing it???

It's kind of another reason why I've always wanted a digital scale...because regular scales can be hard to read (or maybe it's just me). I kept thinking I was 170 when really I was like 10 lbs off.

I'M SO HAPPY. I can't explain it.

I remember 159 was the lowest I ever got ever since I started this weight loss...then I fell off the wagon and shot up to the 170's again and was hugely disappointed in myself. Now, I feel like...god gave me another chance...put me back at 159 and said it's time to start over, child. Go, go shoot for the stars! SERIOUSLY. I know I'm going over the top, lol but I'm just so happy. I'm more motivated then ever now. NEVER again will I go over the 160's mark. I'm going down now. I'm going to make it to my goal once and for all and stop this madness of going up and down. This is it, ladies. This is a revolution. Me against the scale.

I've got all of summer to lose even more.

I just had to tell you all cause you're all awesome
and I just feel sky high right now.

That's exactly how my *electronic* scale behaves.

Beautiful, how does this compare with the scale you typically use?

Congrats. That had to feel amazing.

Target has a really cheap digital scale that I only paid like $20 for- it's pretty accurate- I mean it only measures in half pound increments but for $20 I'll take it!
