Talking SV- I dropped a big weight!

What am I talking about? Ok, so you know how the doctor's office scales have two weights, the big one on the bottom measuring out 50# and the smaller one on top measuring in smaller increments? This afternoon at the gym I only had to move the big block 2 notches to the right--to 100lbs instead of 150lbs!! This was a huge mental marker for me. Now I just need to get that small weight to move back to the left...

149lbs and normal BMI--woohoo!!

Isn't that awesome? My gym has the doctor scales and weighs me a couple pounds heavier then home. But I finally got it go to 150lb & 50 instead of 200lb & 50.

SO AWESOME!!!

I'll admit, that's part of the reason my goal weight is in the 140s That, and I think it would be a healthy endpoint for my height/build.

Congrats!

Thanks guys!

Wormwooddoll- congrats on your loss! Doesn't it feel good when you knock that big guy down a notch? But then the little one goes all the way back to the right, lol...we'll keep working on that one for the time being

Congratulations.

I had this experience for the very FIRST time at my doctor this past Friday. It does feel great. I wanted to do a cartwheel off that scale and actually could and would have. But then I would have worried about what the nurse wrote about me in her chart!
