So I went out yesterday and bought a new scale. After my last mishap, I didn't really want a scale but with such a big number difference...I figured my scale was really wrong. My mother in law stepped on my old scale and said it was I bit the bullet. So this morning, I stepped on the old scale and the new scale and took the difference and added it to everything. I'm a little bit disgusted that I weighed over 270 pounds and really it's only 7 pounds more than what I thought I weighed, but being so close to 300 pounds is a little scary. 10 years ago I weighed a little more than half of what I weigh now. And now my weight has only creeped into the 240's, not the 230's. I don't think I'm going to make my goal of 225 but at the point in which I set that goal, I thought it was only 25 pounds, not 50. In other good news, I'm finally getting my free membership to the Y so I'm going to start to set fitness goals - something to the tune of walk one mile one day a week, use gym cardio equipment one day a week, lift weights on day a week....I'd love to go swimming but I'm not cute in a bathing suit and I feel bad inflicting that on someone else...I bought a water cooler on Friday's a cute little table top model and now I have cold spring water at my fingertips 24/7. I've been doing pretty good diet wise and waterwise and while I've gained 3 pounds - I don't really count it as a gain. I like to think that they never really left and I just need to work harder to remind them that they don't belong here. I feel like I'm looking better...and honestly, my weight has been much higher recently so I'm going to go from here. I'm going to try to blog more frequently, for no one but myself and as a way to be held accountable so keep those comments coming if you feel inspired. I'm also going to weigh in every Sunday morning, no matter how I feel about the results....

Just think of it this way: Better to find out now & readjust your mindset than to find out when you thought you reached your goal. Progress is still progress.

Keep it up! We'll keep cheering you on!
