I got on the scale this morning and was stunned by what I saw: 138.5! Down 3 full pounds in just one day!
I’ve been sticking to the diet all week and exercising a ton, but since Monday the scale had been stuck on 141.5, probably because of my “time of the month” (can’t I just say “I’ve got my period”?). I knew the scale would move eventually, but I did NOT think that it would move by 3 pounds, and that I would be back in the 130s today. This is a great way to start the weekend! Although, it kind of makes me want to celebrate with a drink – probably not the best idea, but oh well. 🙂
This will definitely keep me on track through next Thursday. That’s the day of my company’s holiday party, which was one of the primary reasons I wanted to start the diet before Thanksgiving – I’ll be seeing an ex at that party, and I wanted to look at least as good as the last time I saw him. And now I know I will.
