Good Monday Morning to Journal & Friends!
On some good advice from other blog buddies, I decided to switch to reporting monthly on my weigh ins. That's today!
So for day 1 of February: 351
That means a total loss in January of 7 pounds. I was aiming for 8, but I'll take it. :-)
I REALLY want to get to 350! It's been a goal of mine for... twenty years??!!! It's a hurdle I want to bust through.. it's a psychological thing.
It has to do with walking triumphantly into the doctors office, and holding my head up high as they walk me down the little hallway to the little room. And you KNOW where the nurse always stops on the way to the little room, right???
Yes, at THE SCALE. The scale that wouldn't weigh ME, because I was too heavy. But the nurses don't look at my chart, or THINK, and instead always stop at the same scale that only goes to 350 pounds... and they cheerfully chirp out "let's get your weight today." And once again, I say no thanks, I'll pass. And they insist. And I am forced, yet again, to explain to them with embarrassment that the scale won't go high enough to weigh me, and I must tell them what my home scale said, instead.
I am DONE with that humiliation!! Never again!
I am looking forward to the next doctors visit, whenever that is. I can't wait to go down the little hallway and stop at that scale. And feel like any other patient. Normal. Able to use normal equipment, like anyone else. I may not be at my goal yet, but this is a tiny milestone that I have looked forward to for years with eagerness!
Did you ever think you would WANT to get weighed in front of people??!! LOL!
