The scale made me happy today
Sunday, February 14, 2021
My life has been on a whirlwind of events (losing a job, my mother in law in hospice, and then passing away recently). I have been deep cleaning this house for months, up and down the stairs helping my mother in law. Keeping very busy and distracted, sometimes missing a meal, sleeping longer than I should, being emotionally exhausted.
Yesterday alone, I hustled 16 large bags downstairs and brought them to Goodwill, that was a workout in itself. Then after went shopping for an hour walking around aisle by aisle. For the last few weeks, I have been doing over 5500 steps, 2 miles+ a day on my Fitbit.
Then in the midst of it all, had time to get on the scale and I cried, it has been almost a decade since I have weighed in my 220s and now I am really inspired to keep going and lose even more. I am seeing it comes off in my face, my bra is looser, my pants are baggier and the XL shirts are getting loose too. I am really happy today, thank you all for being here to share the news with. Happy Valentines to all of you
