For the first time ever in my whole life, I was excited to weigh myself. Why? Because I ate nothing but the best all-natural, organic when I could, no added ingredients to anything food all week (even my favourite pasta sauce had added sugar...why? Why does pasta sauce require sugar added? Needless to say I have a new favourite pasta sauce now, also a favourite new yogurt, canned tuna, soy milk, protein powder, pita bread, salsa, and canned veggies (added sugar to canned veggies and canned tuna? STUPID!).
I happily place the scale in front of me, and step on ever so gingerly as not to make the scale numbers spin out of whack and give me a heart attack.
drum roll please....
FOUR POUNDS LIGHTER! Haaaaaaaaaallelujah!
Now, you may be wondering what my weight is. However, due to the pressures that society has beaten in my head growing up, I do not feel comfortable divulging such information on the world wide web. You will be happy to know that I have taken "before" pictures and (gulp) a video, where I say my 'before" weight and also take my "before" measurements—Worst. Moment. Ever.
This video remains hidden in a box, under lock and key, with a secret pass code, buried in my yard. Until the day I am super fit and skinny and feel comfortable enough showing my former fatty self.
I am so happy, even despite the following:
- I woke up late and my hair is just not doing it for me today
- I poked my eye with my mascara brush leaving a huge black smudge on my eyelid that I can't seem to get 100% rid of.
- The fact that I forgot to make my super healthy lunch and had to just grab a bunch of ingredients and throw them in my bag so I wouldn't be late for work.
- The frigid temperatures outside today
- My mittens are not doing their job
- These are the wrong underwear to have on with these pants.
I am so so sooooo happy. Elated even. Losing weight is an instant upper, and my skinny high is going to last all week, motivating me even more to keep pushing really extra hard at the gym, taking the extra hours a week to prepare five small balanced extremely healthy meals a day with all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, carbs, and protein my almost fit body desires, drinking gross plain protein powder and water after a good muscle blast workout (how I miss my chocolate flavoured protein powder), and continue going to my new love hate class at the gym (more to follow on this tremendous ass kicker).
Almost one month has passed, and ten pounds have been lost. Yessssssss.
