I stepped on a scale in public!! You know those huge scales at the grocery store? Well I stepped on one. And I weighed in at 287 pounds full clothed, including shoes and holding my purse!!!!
I've not been below 290 fully clothed in maybe 3 years ... perhaps more.
But the real victory is that I stepped on it because I knew that for the first time in years I would be able to. That I would not watch the needle peg out at 300 pounds. I didn't care what the numbers said. Just that it would be less than the scale's maximum.
And I did this infront of people.
Seeing 287 fully clothed and with purse in hand was nice. But even better was knowing that the scale held no real power to intimidate me any more!
