199

I planned to finish a post I started yesterday and post it today, but something surprising happened that trumps that unfinished post.

I got on the bathroom scale this morning and for the first time in my adult life, I did not weigh 200 or more pounds! When I saw "199" displayed on the scale, it looked so odd that I thought the scale had erred, so I got off and back on the scale again fully expecting it to read 200-something, but it displayed 199 again!

I have been trying to get under 200 like forever and I came close a few times, but breads and sweets always got in the way. I think breads more than sweets was the deal breaker because I don't really eat a lot of sweets and as soon as I cut out my daily dosage of bread three weeks ago, I started dropping weight... not dramatically, but slowly and at a steady pace.

Wow! I am a happy girl!

  2. Congratulations Stana, it's always a good day when you reach a new milestone of any kind. And just like every other woman, weight loss is a never ending struggle. But maybe the thought of new dresses in a new size is incentive enough!

  3. Congratulations 199 is impressive. I think that the last time I saw a number on my scale that did not start with a "2" Jimmy Carter was in the White House...or it could have been Ford or even Nixon.

    1. Thank you, Lucy. Last time I shopped, I was down to a size 12 in some styles and designers. I imagine size 12 is more universal for me now.
