Ah me oh my, things are going well up in here after a few bad days physically and mentally. It seemed like just after a day of inner turmoil passed I hit a physical roadblock of some sort. But thankfully I made it through the hump and have completed my 6th week, aka the halfway mark. Check out the video for an awesome halfway mark update of my progress.
Previous Weight: 233.5
Weight loss at GMFR: – 10 lbs
Weight loss total: – 20.8 lbs
YAY for good updates!! Hehe. I’m off to bingo tonight to hopefully win cool things (or just have fun) so in the spirit of winning cool things, here is a little story and scale giveaway::
So.. right now as you may know I’m at a weight loss spa/health spa/fitness retreat kind of place. Basically, women come here because they want to lose weight. However, the awesome thing about this place is that they don’t focus on weight. At all. In fact, if they had their way entirely scales wouldn’t exist. Weight wouldn’t ever be a number you knew.
A while ago someone sent me a scale to try out and now I feel like I have contraband in my room. I wanted to use it once and then get rid of it, so it will be donated to a worthy cause. While I am at Green Mountain at Fox Run I want to abide by their rules and philosophy, so I won’t keep it around even though I don’t think scales are useless (read the reasons why I used to weigh in daily). Right now, my decision is not to scale. So mine goes out and I continue onward with bi-weekly check-ins. :)
The people at EatSmart (who have cool kitchen scales for weighing food) want to give one reader of A Merry Life one of their new bathroom scales! Here’s a little info about the scale and giveaway.
UPDATE: CONTEST HAS NOW ENDED. WINNER ANNOUNCED TOMORROW!
And even if you don’t want to enter, leave me a comment anyway. I’ve got another 6 weeks to push hard and make some major progress so I could use any encouragement!
Have a great Friday! :)
