How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

New Scale

I just placed an order for a new bathroom scale. The one I have is mostly fine, but it only measures in increments of .5 lbs and I would like more than that. So I went on (Yes, I'm a dork. And yes, I have a subscription) to see which one they recommend and ended up buying this beauty. It is a Taylor, model 7506, Glass and Chrome Digital Scale.

I'm pretty happy with my decision and I can't wait for it to arrive! Although, I will never be the weight that is listed in that picture! I would probably be close to dead if I was ever that weight. Hahahaha!

Speaking of weight. This morning I was 180.5. It's about 2 pounds up from my lowest. I'm a little upset about that, but not terribly. I sort of feel like I should be upset about it. I feel like I am not trying hard enough. But on the other hand, I am tired. Tired of beating myself up and denying myself little things. I am well on my way, actually I'm on the home stretch. I'm aiming for 160 and I know that the last chunk is the hardest to push through. I think I'm going to give myself a break. Not take a break from counting my calories and logging my food. But a break from the mental exhaustion of self imposed pressure to lose at the pace I did during the first 9 months after my surgery.

Tonight I'm going to dinner with my knitting guild. It is our last "meeting" of the season, and we do a dinner and have the installation of new officers for the next season. This year we are going to Spring Creek BBQ and I'm pretty excited about it. They have the best rolls ever, yum! I have no idea what else I'll get but I know I'm going to eat one of those. :)

Have a great day everyone!


  1. OH nice scale...I should get a new one but I'm too chicken it'll read higher than mine does now. LOL

  2. Fancy!! :) I understand what you mean about the mental break. I did that December-February and I think it took me longer than I expected to get back into super weightloss mode, but it was worth it.

    It does get exhausting sometimes. And sometimes letting go of the stress has a positive effect on the scale.

    Either way, I'm here for you girlie!
