It does like to mess with me, though.
I've recently lost some weight. Not a ton (well, of course not a ton. You haven't seen me on TLC yet have you? "One Ton Woman Only Has Time To Write Once A Week In Her Blog" Not quite.)
But, enough that it's made a difference in how I feel. About 20 lbs!
At least I think it's about 20 lbs. My stupid scale messes with my head.
I weigh in the same time everyday, wearing the same outfit--my birthday suit.
I step on : 122 (Not real weight, of course. Did you think I'd actually write my real weight?)
I step off. Then immediately back on: 120
Awesome! I lost 2 pounds in 2 seconds! This weight loss thing is a piece of cake! Wait, cake?
Step back off, then on again: 125. Oh man! I knew I shouldn't have thought of cake!!
I do this several times until I get a number at least 3 out of 5 times.
I have been making small goals along the way. I've had a certain number I've been trying to reach for about a week now. I've been .3 pounds away from it for 3 days. So frustrating!!
Today, I saw that number! For about 3.2 seconds.
Stupid scale is just teasing me. Forcing me to work harder so I can see that number for more than a split second or two.
I even got desperate enough to go out and buy a swim suit. I did own one but it was a maternity suit left over from approximately 3 kids ago. We won't even discuss how it still mostly fits.
But, I needed a new suit.
After an entire day of shopping (in may have taken longer than necessary because Papa had all of my kids. To say I hurried would be an untruth.) I found an old lady style that tries to look fashionable. You know, the kind with a skirt? Yeah. S-E-X-Y.
But, I'm not trying to impress anyone. My husband has seen me naked a few times. So, no reason to look good, even if I could.
This last week, I've made it a priority to get to the pool and swim laps. With the old people (good thing I had an appropriate old lady suit, eh?)
If anyone ever tells you you can't get hot and sweaty swimming, they are liars.
But, it's exercise that I enjoy (did I just say that sentence out loud?).
My scale is challenging me but for once, I will win!
Wish me luck!
