Feeling Lighter

Honestly, it feels like Miles adjusts the scale every week so that when I step on it, I see the numbers I want to see.

But then he’d also have to be adding fabric to my clothes to make them bigger and going to the stores where I buy new clothes and switching the tags. He’s clever. But he’s just not that clever. And I’ve never seen him use a needle and thread.

So, it must be that I’m still steadily losing weight. My weigh-in this morning shows that I’ve lost 40.6 pounds! Because the loss has been so gradual, it’s only been recently that people who see me fairly often have noticed. Several coworkers have even taken notice and asking for advice.

You  might remember that I posted my weight-loss goals. I have since adjusted the last one, since it appears I underestimated my possible success.  The original final goal was to lose 50 pounds by Christmas. I changed it to be June 19, which some of you might remember was our due date. I think it’s a goal I can meet, but still need to work hard for because I’ve got 6 weeks to meet that and I’m not sure how easily this last 10 might come off. I’d need to lose about 1.6 pounds every week. But I will be working hard towards that goal!

After that, I’d like to keep going if it feels right. I will re-evaluate at that time. Thanks for all of your support. I will keep you updated on my progress!
