A 5000 BTU Air Conditioner

Holy Cow Batman! I stepped on the scale at Dr. Beiter’s office today totally prepared for a gain, I could not even bring myself to get on the scale at home to see the damage done over the last two weeks. I was hoping for no more than a 5lb gain. The number stopped at 334…. I lost a pound.  I am not sure there has been a weight loss during this whole time that has meant as much as this one little pound. It is the small step forward I needed, a reassurance that I am not the same, not standing still no matter how small the reward and am NOT moving backwards.

I have lost 55lbs so far…as much as a 5000 BTU air conditioner, and I am looking forward to losing another 5lbs so I can tell you that I have lost as much as the average elephant’s penis (I can’t make this stuff up folks) that will be a reason to celebrate for sure! I am not quite sure how you celebrate that, but we will figure something out!

Just a note to confirm my love for the amazing Dr. B, as she knew I was struggling so suggested we have a “check in” appointment to talk through things and as usual I am left totally overwhelmed by the gift I have in her. I have no idea how I got so lucky, but to have her on my side means the world to me.

I am fired up and re-energized to kick some ass in the next two weeks. Lindsey, get ready!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

    Hey Lori, thanks for that elephant visual. You couldn’t have used something like elephant ears instead ? :o) Now I need something to get that out of my head….oh yeah….”He’s a lumberjack and he’s okay, he sleeps all night and he works all day…” There, that took care of it. Must have been that magical, super-delicious apple on your birhtday, the day the Reds were gracious enough to play a game for you, that took care of the downsizing this go around. Keep that focus with your upcoming busy times at work. We’re pulling for you.
