I'm pretty sure my gym thinks that I have a membership solely for use of their scale. They are happy to take my $29.99 every month for that, but they still think I'm weird for it.
I will get back to the gym at some point.
Anyway. As you've heard pretty much every week since I started this little WLW column thing... I was sure, yet again, that this was the week. The week I wouldn't lose. Or I would gain. Or I'd only lose 1/4 pound. Or god forbid I'd start a plateau. UGH! The worst! I knew it. I stripped down as far as I would dare in a new gym with lots of people in the locker room and stepped on the scale.
And yet again I was shocked into bursting pride and happiness.
DOWN 3 POUNDS, BABY!
That makes for a total loss of 14 pounds! Which is amazing! In 6 weeks I'm down 14 pounds! Geez! That's still just over my 2 pounds per week goal. My next goal is to have a total of 25 pounds gone by the end of July when we go to Florida. Which means that I have exactly 7 weeks to lose 11 pounds. I feel like this won't be a problem, but you never know. I don't want to get too over-confident.
I just need to get myself into the gym so that I'm toning while I'm losing. I don't want all that skin hanging off of me, or to still look out of shape once I've lost my total amount I am trying to lose, you know? So that's something I need to concentrate on again.
I told Maria last night that I felt like somebody was playing a trick on me. Like every time I go in to weigh myself and see that I've lost, I feel like somebody has tampered with the scale to make me think I've lost, when in fact I haven't. I don't know why a stranger at the gym would do that to me. But it seems logical because I just don't feel like I have to try hard this time.
My mom thinks it's because I finally decided that this is something I really want to do. So thanks to being superficial and a shopaholic, I'm losing weight? Does that seem a little too.... easy?.... to anybody else? I don't know. I'll take it and keep doing what I'm doing. And just hope and pray that Livestrong.com doesn't flake out on me at some point. Because so far it's been a champ!
OK, I'm sorry to cut this short but work just keeps getting so busy and yet again today I'm the only assistant in the office because, really, in 6 months, being completely alone in an office of 25 needy execs for a total of about a month and a half is COMPLETELY ACCEPTABLE! Grrrr!!
OK back to work. Have a nice heatwave!
