Well, last night, I stepped onto the scale, something I haven't done in two weeks (and before that I think it had been three months). There's no point. I've been at 150 for what seems to be forEVER -- at least for the last 10 months -- since going back on a partial gluten (which means gluten -- you're either free or you're not!) food plan.
So, I stepped on the scale. Looked down. Gasped. Stepped off. That couldn't be right. I shook the scale. (Someone once told me that re-calibrates the scale to be more accurate. Whether or not it works, I don't know, but I do it without thinking.) Took a deep breath. (Somehow, that helps.) Stepped on. Looked down, and squeaked, "Really?" Stepped off. I was getting excited. Shook the scale. Stepped on. Looked down. "OMG!" I squealed loud enough for Hubby to hear.
"What?" came Hubby's voice from the other room.
Stepped off. "OMG!!"
"One-FREAKIN'-Forty-TWO! At the end of the day after eating all day! OMG, I'm 142!" I did my version of a happy dance which is basically hopping on my strong leg and waving my arms for balance. (The leg couldn't take the stress of my new 142-pound frame and dumped me into Hubby's lap when I reached the living room). (Over-dramatic? Who? ME? I am so lucky he loves me just the way I am -- although I sometimes surprise him still! :D)
I just showered, got dressed, and, before the start of the day (with clothes on!), I'm 140! 10 pounds in less than two weeks all because my body is getting proper nutrition. I know that I am still below the 1200 calorie mark, but I'm working on it. So, when my weight naturally plateaus or I reach my "ideal" weight, I will be ingesting 1500 calories a day (well, one can always dream!) and feeling GREAT!
Time to grab-and-go to work! Have a healthy day!
