Happy Fall! (Weigh In day)

Happy first day of fall, everyone!

Autumn is my favorite season, hands down. It’s dry, cool, and smells pretty darned amazing. Tis the season of hoodies, leaves changing, cooperative hair, cider, pumpkin spiced everything, and HALLOWEEN! Seriously, I can’t wait. My birthday is also two weeks from today!

So needless to say I was feeling pretty optimistic about today, granted that has nothing really to do with my weight at all. But it’s hard to not feel good on one of the best days of the year. I get more excited about fall than I do Christmas.

This past week I’ve really been trying hard. Making sure that I’m eating well (nooo, Reese’s Pumpkins aren’t a breakfast food) and drinking more water. So fingers crossed I did better than last week.

Last weigh in: 239
This weigh in: 237.5
Total lost: 1.5

Let me sing from the rooftops for a moment!

Sure, 1.5 pounds doesn’t seem like that much. But I’m thrilled. I haven’t been actively trying to lose weight in well over a year. So to have anything lost, right off the rip, makes me feel amazing! Sure the happiness kind of dwindles down a bit when I remember the 6 pound gain from last week, but who cares? I’ve decided I’m not going to.

Success. Progress! At this point, any number that isn’t going up is a reason to celebrate! At least it is for me.

Makes me want to do a little jig. Hey, maybe I will.

I’m just going to sit here dancing in my seat and patting myself on the back. 1.5 pounds down and 72.5 to go!
