About Me

Concord, California, United States
I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Weight Update- Week 9

I feel sort of strange writing about how much weight I lost this week because it seems like a lie.

I got on the scale around five different times this morning because I couldn't believe what I was seeing and THEN I made Lila get on the scale to see if there was just something wrong with the scale itself (you know, low battery or something).  When I get on the scale I sort of visualize the number that I want to pop up on the screen.  When the number  came in this morning, it was 3 pounds less than the number I hoped for in my wildest fantasy.

My body went through some sort of miraculous change this week.  I could sort of feel it happening.

I worked hard.  I restricted calories.  My period ended, which is certainly partially responsible for my dip.  I worked up a sweat at least once each day...  I felt less hungry and more in control of my eating habits and body all week.  And I certainly do feel slimmer.

Because I lost 8 pounds in one week.

That doesn't seem possible, right?

I know.

I feel embarrassed to admit that it happened because I don't feel that it's possible and if I read as much on someone else's blog I'd think that it was a lie or a mistake.  But it must be possible because it did happen.  So, I am not going to complain about this or ever expect that it happens again. Also, if I do not lose ANY weight this week, I will be okay with that.  I am just going to appreciate this and consider it some sort of gift from the universe.  Maybe I'm getting a big pay off for sticking with my weight loss plan even when times were tough and I wasn't losing at all?  Who knows?

What I do know is that I have lost 26 pounds!!!!!!
