I hardly touched the puter Friday--too busy--so I missed Face the Truth Friday. So, we'll call this Speak What the Scale Says Saturday:
That's 2.6 down from last week's "official" weigh-in on Friday, before the post-concert fiasco. Not only was the fiasco made-up for, but that's double my usual loss. Perhaps those 1200 or so calorie days helped, huh? :) I don't expect this to continue (ie, this rate) at goal-level.
It's wonderful to be working the diet in a new decade. It's great to see some size 20's fit me, some. :) It's great to have new bras to keep the puppies in check. It's great to look forward to the 220's and new milestones.
I have nothing bad to say about showing a loss for a week where I ate MORE than last week. It's all good. I like eating more. I know the imperative that Allan and others feel to do this speedily and reach goal weight in the coming spring--his estimate for me has me at goal in May, 2011, though my rate of loss is slower than estimates show. Even when I was eating my calories perfectly at or below goal before Spawn, I didn't see 239 at the expected time. Took me longer. But even if it were June or July of next year, that's a year plus ahead of my own bloggy schedule. Amazing. Still....I like having the goal-level calories for flexibility and satisfaction. It'll take longer, but I will enjoy the journey and eat out with hubby without feeling overly constrained. That does matter to me. It may be a cop-out in some eyes, but it works for me so far.
Anyway, that's a Friday truth on Saturday, and it's still all good to me. At this rate, I will be under 200 pounds by my Anniversary. I intend to buy me a kick-butt dress and show of my legs to celebrate. And I have eschewed dresses for years. Hopefully, the sagging elephant skin won't be an impediment to that. If so, then I guess I'll become acquainted with Super Spanx. :D
Happy Weekend to all and to all an almost goodnight.
