Yesterday I was 176.5, so I thought it was in the realm of possibility to reach 175.5 today, which would be 40 lbs lost.
So I ate low cal, drank water, exercised.
Today ... ta da! I am 178.5
Now I understand the scale fluctuates from day to day, and it probably results from some bodily function, or lack thereof. But for some reason I find it funny!
But, the Steelers won, after a nail biter of a game, so you can't have everything.
I bet I will hit that 40 lb mark this week.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
