The First Five.

I got on the scale today, just as I’ve been doing every Saturday since the beginning of the New Year. And you know what? It gave me good news again.

I hesitate to say this out loud. I sure as hell don’t want to jinx it again. But I’m down 5.5 pounds.

That’s one-sixth of the way to my goal. The one that will put me right smack at my happy weight.

I think this time I can do it. I really do.

I’m not doing anything fancy. No counting points. No gym memberships. Just using this app I found called LoseIt, moving my bod, and giving myself a mental slap every time I reach for the chocolate.

It’s slow going. And hard work.

But I think know this time I can do it.

There’s a little girl who needs me to be around for another 60 years or so. And I intend to be there.

Who’s with me?

    Oh, Good for you!!!!! I’m so happy to hear its working!!

    I, too, am on a 30 pound weight loss goal. . . . and after joining a gym, taking classes and working out an hour to hour and a half 4 times a week, my body is incredibly sore and 6 weeks later I have lost. . . . . . . 2 POUNDS!

    Sigh. I am so downloading the app Lose It.

    Anyways, this isn’t about me. I’m glad to hear that you are working it. I can’t wait to see all the new clothes you buy to celebrate when you reach your goal. You have the best vintage taste!!

      Find me after you download it. I registered under my usual email. You can do it! And so can I. I think I’ll start a Pinterest board with things I want to buy…

    I need to drop thirty and just on Saturday I said to myself that I should try it week by week. If I can have one good week, maybe I’ll try for another good week. I’m no longer going to focus on the number but what I do each week.
