I did it. I found the courage to weigh myself last night and I found out that I now weigh 145 pounds. I don’t want to weigh 145 lbs, but I’m also relieved that I don’t weigh more than that. I also weigh MUCH less than what I actually started at (160 lbs).
I should also take note of when I’m weighing myself, though. I’m not making excuses or exaggerating gow much less I may weigh, but instead of weighing myself at night, I should weigh myself first thing in the morning instead, but my excuse is, my scale at home is broken so I have to use the one at work.
On top of that, my monthly visitor came. I know that’s really personal, but I’m thinking that water retention may also be a factor in how much I weigh at the moment. So, actually, minus the water weight and the fact that I weigh myself after eating, I might even weigh less than that. Maybe I weigh 143. Next weigh-in, I’ll find out.
Hopefully, I’ll weigh even less than that whenever I weigh myself again because my diet over the past few days has been pretty extreme. I expect to lose 5-7 lbs in the first week. If my metabolism slows down, that’s fine, but I’d like to be thin enough to look good in a prom dress.
Hopefully, not the same thing as usual happens and I don’t stop losing weight whenever I get to a certain number. My metabolism seems to stop once I get down to 141 lbs.
