I've been here before, so I'm not going to get carried away. But, this morning I got on the scale and the first digit in my weight was a 1. Weird.


Last time I hit this landmark, I fell off the wagon and put it all back on . . . about 45 pounds worth. I think I have about 10-15 more pounds to go. We'll see how this year plays out. If I drop another 55, I'll be at the same weight I had when I entered college (waaayyyyy too skinny).

I thought all scales started with a 2... Where can I get this special kind of scale with a 1?

Congratulations! If I continue at my current rate, I'll see a 1 by mid-March. I'll still have 40+ pounds to go at that point, though...
