The dreaded scale. I wonder if I stand with on my tiptoes, with no clothes on and hold my breath, will I be skinny according to my scale?
I am horrible. I still make up excuses why the scale calculated my weight wrong. They include:
- It is at the end of the day and my body is carrying around all the weight.
- The scale is not balanced.
- The battery is low so it doesn't read properly.
- My shoes weigh 3 pounds.
- I am bloated.
- My clothes weigh 6 pounds.
- My three year old must of been playing with it again.
(More information at http:jcsquared.myvi.net) I also hit my magic number 149.6 I had reached my goal and then the holidays came and let's just say I have a sweet tooth. I love everything and anything covered in chocolate. Also working in education, I am spoiled with lots of homemade treats. How can you say no and waste so thank you gifts. Plus I love wine. Mesina Hof Tribute to Beauty and Sangria are my first loves. So for the last 40 days, I have had food and ate like I would never eat again.
I was pleasantly surprised that when I stepped on the scale, it was not too shabby. On Monday, I started my Body by Vi Shakes again and have a goal to hit 135. I never seen this number on the scale but it is a goal worth shooting for. P.S. I am 5'8" so you get some perspective.
UPDATE: 1/4/11: I weighed in at 151.6. Very impressed considering the amount of chocolate covered cherries and pie I ate over the last month!
Day 3: Resolution: Be able to step on the scale and not be afraid of what magic number shows up.
