As you may have read here, I shunned my scale for the month of January. It felt so good not to stress over every little pound. However, I kept up with my running and did not go crazy with the unhealthy foods. Now for February, I set myself some new goals and I signed up for a new Dietbet so it is back to the scale again. Today, I am linking up with Erin & Alex to get back on the weight loss train. I did not weigh myself this morning, but my official beginning weight for the Dietbet on Monday was 145.6. Pretty damn good considering I started off January at 150 lbs. This also means that I am 10 lbs away from my original goal of 135! So, I just have to lose 5.8 lbs this month to win my Dietbet and hit the 40 lb mark. This is going to be my month, I can feel it.
I went downstairs to my old department at work on Monday to talk to someone and I saw a few people that I hadn't seen in a while. It was really great to hear them tell me that I looked fantastic and one woman didn't even recognize me at first! Quite the testament to how far I've come.
