Weekly Update: A Weigh-In Surprise!


This morning I had to do a double take on our scale.
You see, it's been a bit wonky in it's weighing capacity.


For the hubbs, it works just fine.
For me, 

Notsomuch.
For some reason, it doesn't like me, so it'll weigh me less or more by as much as 10 lbs sometimes! 
But I stepped on it twice, and it said the same thing both times (for once!)
As of today, Kids, I am at . . .
(drumroll please . . .)
205 lbs.
!!!!!!!!!!!

This came as quite the surprise because I've been weighing it at between 213-215 for the past two weeks. 
So I guess when the stall breaks, it breaks HARD.
So that means I am FIVE POUNDS AWAY, Kids, from ONEDERLAND!!!
I haven't seen 199 since I was a sophomore in high school.

So this week, I issued a challenge to my sweet readers (ahem. YOU GUYS).
By the way, it's not too late to link up if you like.
hint, hint
This challenge was all about changing your eating habits from eating processed junk to whole, all-natural foods.
How's it going for me so far?
Not bad. 
I have, so far: 
* switched from sweetened flavored creamer to half and half and raw stevia
* served fresh or frozen vegetables that were roasted or steamed
* created a homemade, low-fat cheese sauce
* made lunch with fresh ingredients rather than pre-packaged quick meals

So far, I'm doing well. 
I wonder if this switch is what has inspired my body to finally let go of over 10 lbs . . ?
Next week is a big celebration because it's my 6 Month Surgiversary!
I'm excited to share the pivotal moment with all of you.
Have a great day!

Just came over through SITS and wanted to say congrats on such great accomplishments. Yes, it’s wonderful that the scale moved, but it seems like you’re really making good changes. Keep up the good work and I’m sure one-derland will be here sooner than you know it.
