Happy Sunday People!

I hope everyone is doing well! I’m having a splendid day so far. I’ve cleaned my kitchen, gotten 2 loads of laundry done, did some exercises on the wii fit (saw 281.1 on the weigh in!) and had an event that just made me want to dance around.

I can’t call it a ‘non scale victory’ because it involves the scale, but it’s kinda strange. I had gone upstairs to get a basket of laundry that needed washing, and on a whim at the bottom of the stairs (where I keep my scale) I decided to step on with that heavy basket of laundry… AND THE NUMBER POPPED UP WITH MY START WEIGHT! I can’t believe I’ve been shrugging off my “only 20ish pounds” lost! I used to have the equivalent of that heavy basket of laundry attached, most likely, to my mid section!  It’s no wonder my knees and ankle don’t hurt as much at the end of the day anymore.

It’s hard to believe how much you’ve actually lost until you pick up something that weighs as much as your loss. It’s amazing! I recommend it for anyone in a situation similar to mine. Starting out with a lot of weight to lose, and not too far into your progress yet. Don’t knock those first few pounds! They add up!

    I’m like you and I like to see how much I lost. My first 20 lb loss I picked up a bag of rice that I had and I was amazed at how hard it was to move around with it. You had an ultra-productive day today! Way-to-go!

    Have a lovely night and good luck with the new week.
