weirdangel's Journal, 17 April 2011

Well I bought a scale and jumped on it and lost 9 pounds in two weeks. I'm pretty happy with that... the scale is going in the right direction!! What sort of bugged me was I had weighed myself on a scale in the mall (one of those where you put in a quarter) and it was the middle of the day and I had on jeans and tennis shoes and that scale said I had lost 17 pounds, which was super exciting, but honestly I felt this had to be wrong. So, I'm giong to use this scale as my benchmark.

I plan to weigh myself every two weeks versus once a week. I think for me seeing a large weight loss (hopefully) every two weeks versus a small weight loss every week is more motivation.

I went out Friday night and drank a lot and it is taking me two days to recoup. Not going to do that again for a while. Not as young as I used to be.

So today is windy and cold and not sure I'm going to get out and exercise. Feeling very lazy which means of course that I SHOULD get off my butt and move. If I do, I'll let you know :)

Everyone have a wonderful Sunday.

Weirdangel - Have read a lot of scale stories on the site. I keep mine set to what my doctor's says and hope for the best. Just curious - did you happen to see the comment that Sexynona and I made on your last weigh in?
