a whole new world

in terms of numbers on a scale
i have entered a whole new world.
a new set of 10’s i like to call it.
i passed a threshold and i am ecstatic!!

i had mentioned a couple of months ago that i decided to start using the scale to my advantage
and use it as a tool.
i crunched some numbers, did some research and decided there was a number that i was comfortable being…
if of course i had to be a number.

anyways, this morning i decided to weigh in
i haven’t weighed myself since before christmas…and the number was not disappointing then.

when i went for my personal assessment at the gym…she weighed me and even then the number was good.
i factored in that it was late in the day…i was wearing heavy shoes…etc

so like i said…i weighed myself this morning…and i am in a whole new world of numbers
the last time i owned a scale was a long, long time ago…but i really don’t think the scale has shown these digits since my early 20’s!!

this is crazy!

so as far as numbers go…i am 4 pounds away from my goal weight.
4 pounds people!!!!!!

i won’t be down 4 pounds for my 1 year anniversary of low carbing, i just don’t think losing 4 pounds in 4 weeks is possible…but then again i never thought i would be where i am either!
i really don’t care what the scale says when March hits…as long as it doesn’t go up!
it’s 4 pounds…and i am in no rush to lose them.

with my mom needing emergency surgery, i am just a ball of nerves
and i could totally eat myself out of house and home
or just not eat at all…
stress is funny like that…but i wrote about that next door…and i’ll just leave it there…where it belongs.
unless of course you are the praying type and care to throw a prayer out there for her…that would be cool and appreciated.

anywhooo…4 pounds baby…4pounds!!

    Wow, congrats on being so close. That must feel amazing. Our journey’s are so similar. I began low carb last February and have lost 40 pounds in the last year…one painful pound at a time. Some months I only lost 2 pounds, others 4. As long as I was going in the right direction all was good. I have cheerfully and tearfully celebrated that last ‘new numbers’ from the 70’s, the 60’s, the 50’s and this week with any luck I’ll see the 40’s…which I think I was for a minute in fifth grade. Not sure how I’ll react when I hit my final goal, which is just 10 pounds away. I might collapse in tears, I might just step off and never look back. Who knows?

    Way to go, bee! It’s exciting to reach a goal and also each mile stone along the way. Definitely prayers are going out to your Mom and to you. 🙂 Hoping to hear good news on your Mom. 🙂 Hugging Kali is a good stress reducer…just not too hard! 🙂
