On a whim, I decided to try my scale this morning. A few months ago, my scale seemed broken. It kept giving me a ridiculously low reading. As much as I wanted to believe that I had lost a 150 pounds in one week, I knew that the scale was broken. I tried changing batteries and it didn’t help. I gave up the scale for lost. I contemplated throwing it in the trash but it is hard for me to throw away electronics. They just seem so bulky and out of place in a garbage bag. I couldn’t afford to buy another scale so for the past few months I have gone without weighing myself. There is a house scale but because I weigh so much I cannot use it. Most scales only go up to 300 lbs.
This morning, on a whim, I decided to try the scale and see if it worked. It did. I am 379.6 lbs now. I have lost 11.6 pounds since October. I am so happy!!!. In my darkest moments, I thought that I would never lose weight. I thought that I was destined to be 400lbs, or near there, forever. Although I would have liked to have lost more weight by now, I am grateful that I have lost 19 lbs already. I am afraid of change so perhaps slow and steady progress suits me.
Thanks for reading!
