Good News, Everyone!

Published June 12, 2014 by Christa the Cupcake

I’ve lost (at least) 5 pounds! I say “at least” because I’m pretty sure I had water-weight when they weighed me. Remember forever ago, when I was all excited about buying that pretty new scale? Yeah, I still haven’t done that. Mostly due to circumstances that are out of my control (i.e. having to buy things that were not expected for reasons that weren’t planned for, like an extra $10 fee both ways for my flight next month which was not a thing last year….) but also, I admit, a certain amount of procrastination. So, I’m still being sporadically measured at my therapist’s office.

I’m kind of afraid of having a scale in the house. I mean what if I start obsessively weighing myself? Or worse, what if I weigh myself when I’m having one of my super-depressed days and I haven’t made any progress, so I destroy the scale and vow to never exercise again? It has happened before.

But scale fears aside, I have lost a minimum of five pounds, and I’m very happy about it. Also, the jeans I just bought last month, which are already a size smaller than the jeans I bought last year, are becoming annoyingly loose! Which means, unless I can find a coupon, I’m probably going to have to come up with another $50 to buy new new jeans in a few months. I want to be really annoyed about it, but how can I be? The new new jeans will only be size 22, but if the trend continues then I’ll probably be down to the teen-sizes by this time next year, and that thought makes me so happy.
