Weigh-In Wednesday!!

So today is the day. I had a hard time sleeping last night from anticipation of what the scale would say today. I shot out of bed this morning like a kid at Christmas to hop on my scale (that is so not normal!). Well kids, the result were (drum roll please!)....10 POUNDS!!!!!

Now I know what some of you will say to this next line but the truth is..I was a little disapointed. Don't get me wrong, I know just how amazing 10 pds is. However, when you were thinking you would lose more than that anything less seems like a little bit of a letdown. This could also be due to the fact that I am incredibly hard on myself and never give myself praise unless I feel it is some sort of massive achievement. So I took the moment to feel that way and and let it go. I gave myself a big ole pat on the back and said "Good Job Me!". While it stills feels incredibly strange to do so this is what I have to do. I have to learn how to take all the good that comes my way and not try and discount it. I am so quick to write my achievements off , no wonder I always feel so far from my goals.

Anyway, enough Debbie Downer and on to the celebration. Adios 10 pounds!!! Don't worry you won't be lonely for long. You will have plenty of pals in no time!


  1. I think on some level we always want the number to be juuuuuust a bit higher! But 10 lbs?! Get yourself two bags of sugar, hold 'em for a hot min and then realize that you're not longer carrying around that much weight. Ah-mazing. You just lost a bigbig newborn!!

  2. I agree!! One of my fav things about losing weight is holding sugar bags, a frozen turkey or 3 year old kids and really feel just how much weight your body no longer has to hang onto!!
    Bravo Lynne!!!!!

  3. As you already know I could not be happier for you if I tried! You are kicking ass as we all knew you would! Love you tons Lynne! What a great day!

  4. I am such a lucky woman to have such amazing friends like you!! Thank you for all your support and love. I wish I could hug all three of you right now ;)
