Today is Weigh-in Wednesday. My self designated day to step on the scale and officially record the number shown. Chosen for the awesomely alluring alliteration effect.

I was in a rush this morning because I hit the snooze button on my alarm, and for the first time in...well, ever...I fell back asleep. Putting me 10 minutes behind schedule. I am not a girly-girl in the morning...I don't spend 45 minutes getting pretty for work. I work with kids. I get food in my hair, snot on my clothes, and dirt on my feet (and this is all on a clean day). Worrying about my appearance is the last thing on my list. I give myself 20 minutes. Losing 10 of those puts me in chicken-with-its-head-cut-off mode. So long story short (although I already gave the long story :D), I didn't weigh-in this morning. I had to do it this afternoon when I got home.

And the number that presented itself on the lovely digital readout was....

[insert drum roll here]

299.

Which means I can officially say I no longer weigh three hundred something.

No, I weigh TWO hundred something.

And yes, that one pound really makes THAT big of a difference. I don't care how silly that is, how minute of a detail. There was a 2 starting my weight this morning. And given all I am going through right now, it's a pretty darn big deal.

I think the last time my weight began with a 2 was in 2000 or 2001.

Small victories in a life of utter chaos must be celebrated.

Congratulations!!! It is not silly at all. There is a big difference between that 300 and that 299 - kind of like turning 18. It may just be a number, but it is quite a symbolic one!

Huge, huge deal - and it was not a first-thing-in-the-morning weigh-in, so it's probably even a lower number than that!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

EXCELLENT news! Simply excellent. You must be beaming.

And I don't think it's silly - at all. It's a VERY big deal, and it's worth celebrating. Keep up the good work. Just keep on going. One milestone after another. Keep building them up. One on top of another, and before you know it ..........

Congratulations and do enjoy your 2 hundred something pound self.
