Oh. My. God.


Today a miracle occurred and it is called "I fit into size 6 and 8 skirts."

Please allow this to sink in.

I definitely don't fit into size 6 or 8 jeans, but skirts, bless their sweet hearts, are more forgiving. They don't mind butts and thighs.

They were junk store skirts and I bought them because just having those sweet single digit numbers in my closet pleases me.

In related news, my scale is trying to make me go completely insane.

Every morning I weigh myself.

Today when I weighed myself the number was Particularly Awesome. I stepped off and weighed myself again. Still Particularly Awesome.

Not content to just enjoy Particularly Awesome, I shifted the scale by two inches on the floor and stepped back on. The number changed- about a pound and a half more than Particularly Awesome. I stepped off. I got back on. Still a pound and a half above awesome. I tried putting the scale back into the original spot- still a pound and a half above awesome.

What the hell?

Why must the scale taunt me like this? Is it in league with Toblerone? What have I done to deserve these horrible mind games????

I suppose I could just weigh myself once a week, but that goes against everything I am! I am obsessed. I am inpatient. I like goals.  I like to monitor my progress daily. I am also convinced that if I don't weigh myself everyday I'll forget that I'm a healthy girl and will dive head first into a plate of hot cheesy nachos with sour cream and guacamole.

Cheese. Sour Cream. Guacamole.

What was I talking about?

Sounds like you were talking about my dinner! lol I would fit in my size 8 if I didn't have it. But you know my dog died and I haven't eaten them in 6 months. I was SOOOOO due!!!
Ok sorry about that. Congrats on your loss! ;) and DON'T MOVE THE SCALE!!!! I think it is a good idea to weigh yourself so you don't get off track. Well Done!
Hugs, Lisa ♥

Well, duh. It's the floor that's out to get you, not the scale.

Did you know you weigh less before you shower? Truth. Your body absorbs water and adds to the poundage.

Congrats of the new sizes! You are rockin' the healthy world all to pieces.
