Extra Motivation From My Scale

I'm fat, a lot of you already know this, I've lost 50 pounds but I still have a ways to go. I also have no problems posting my weight on here because I personally think that I look pretty damn good for 212 pounds (that's right, I said it).

I've been bouncing around between 209 and 212 for months now and it's driving me crazy. I know this is all because I haven't been making the best food choices or at least I haven't consistently been making good food choices.

This morning I got on the scale hoping for a little budge, I had a good run yesterday and even though I had a crappy dinner I was looking for fractions of a pound. What I got was 198.6!?! My scale is sometimes possessed by ghosts of smaller people. I knew this was wrong but I'm not gonna lie, looking down at that number is a lot better than looking down at my real number.

I stepped off and let it zero out again before stepping back on to see that I lost .2 pounds. That was good enough for me but it got me thinking about being under 200 and I think it gave me a little extra push to keep losing.

So, I'm going to work extra hard this week to eat right and I'm going to work out everyday and see where I am next week. Hopefully I'll be closer to 198.6 than I am right now.

Whatever motivation you need to reach your goals is a good thing. Good luck over the holidays!

First of all, you look amazing and have done awesome. Did you ever think you would be running the way you are now?! But I think we all need some motivation from time to time. Even if it comes in the form of a lying scale!

You do NOT look like you weigh over 200lbs! You look totally amazing!

You've done so awesomely and you look freakin' fantastic (and you seem healthy and happy and I have such respect for doing it the right way)! That little bit of motivation is TOTALLY going to get you below this week. I know it!
