Quick Weigh In Post

Hello friends! It is weigh-in time again. This time the results are blah. I am at 187. That is a .8 pound gain. I can't really feel anything about it one way or another because it is has been YET AGAIN another week of lady troubles. Enough said.

However, yesterday I saw a former student (now a 3rd grade). I had not seen her since June. Her mother brought her by to see me after school. When I opened my door, she jumped back because she was a little scared at first. Did not think it was me. She could not get over it. More stares and "you look so different" she was also making shapes with her hands to show me smaller. So cute! I will hold on to that thought instead of the scale today.

So, I decided to write a serious post tomorrow. I have a fat story to tell. I have always said I do not have horrific fat stories to tell like others do and for the most part, that is true. I do have plans next weekend that keep bringing this memory back to me. I am going to share it tomorrow. It happened to me a year and a half ago. I am not sharing in order to have you feel sorry for me (none of us like that) or drudge up your horrible memories. It will probably be relevant to future posts, that's all. I am still grateful that I escaped my morbid obesity relatively unscathed.

Anywho, I must go run now (literally). Hope you have a super Friday and you have better weigh-ins than I.

Also, I noticed today that I am up to 95 followers! Holy cow! You all are so awesome. Maybe someday I will hit 100. I guess that can be my next NSV goal. Thanks for reading my dribble all the time. I love reading your blogs too!!

Bah to the .8 - I guess the scales will be more delicate the nearer to goal you get, but keeping at it (as you know) will get you there no matter what the evil little blighters say!

Love that you are scaring children now, lol.

Looking forward to your story!

You do not post dribble - ever! I think you are doing great even with the small gain. That will go away very, very quickly.

I know how frustrating it is when you're wanting the scale to move and it's not going fast enough! Hang in there. :-) It is always nice when people recognize that you look different though. :-)

I know how those lady troubles can really mess things up..I am expecting my weigh in Monday to not be that great because of that too...but you will lose it next week:) I love your blog and I think you will hit 100 by the end of the year:)

Love that you are so thin you scare! That is a better judge of your success then those damn scales anyway!

You're doing so great. For some reason I am unable to comment from my computer at home. Know that I am reading and loving all your success.

Have a great weekend!

I know the Kansas story is a tough one to tell... you must really like these people.

And have I told you today that I'm proud of you? I am!

As someone who has been struggling for over a month, I can tell you that this week was just a "blip" on your overall success. Take this next week to kick some butt!!!
