Weekly Weight: 215.2 Lbs

The Scale: September 17th, 2021

Oh yes!  The scale moved!  Ah hahahahahaha!  And the Happy Dance Commences!  Well at least until I run into the sink and bruise myself.  It isn’t a terribly big bathroom and it is full of hard surfaces.  I should really just  wait until out of the bathroom for the happy dance to commence. 

But I am thrilled. 

I know, it isn’t a massive amount of weight but I don’t care.  In fact I am perfectly willing to slowly edge down off of the 216 plateau one little decimal point at a time if need be.  I have been circling the same weight for far too long.  And the circle includes frustration, putting weight back on and then getting back down to 216. But after two weeks sitting in the dreaded zone, the scale is moving.

And I couldn’t be happier. 

I know, it isn’t the end all be all, but it feels like a really big accomplishment right now so I am going to celebrate.  Celebration is fine.  It is when you become obsessive about the numbers that issues start.  For me, I put in the work (with one day off because of an under the weather babydoll) and I watched what I ate and it paid off.

I just need to take this as incentive to keep going.  To keep chugging along. And I will.  It is a great feling to be taking into a Friday.  The bruise from the sink, not so much.  It is a good reminder though, no dancing in the bathroom.  Or if I do, try to restrain the hips. Or at least take a little swing out of the motions.  But really if you have to restrain a happy dance, it is really the full happy dance?  No. So Scale in the bathroom, happy dance once we step back into the bedroom.  Sounds like a plan to me, especially as I plan to have several more happy dance moments in the future.

You have no idea how good it feels to record a change.  And I am going to take that feel good feeling and let it fuel my Friday.  I hope all of you have an absolutely splendiferous day.
