An unexpected, yet expected, surprise

It's not my "official" weigh in day, which is Tuesdays, albeit, the last few weeks.... okay months....I've not been posting my weigh-ins because saying "no change, nothing new, same old stuff" 150 times over just isn't appealing. PLUS I was inching closer and closer to my original, all time high weight, and let's face it, that's not really something I'm super duper proud of.

When I was at Dewy's office (my counselor, aka Disorderly Eating Woman YAY!) I had actually went from 130 kilo at my original appointment to 133 at the last appointment, so yeah, I had crept up 3 kilos in 6 weeks (that's a bit over 6 pounds for you unconvertibles).

I was upset but most of all, I was confused! I didn't FEEL like I was gaining weight, and I hadn't done THAT bad recently. Yeah, I wasn't eating perfectly but if anything I would have thought I was just maintaining my svelte 129 kilos, not gaining. I think Dewy must have sense my utter disappointment because she assured me, it's okay, you won't necessarily lose in the beginning as your body adjusts, and I walked away feeling okay with that. Okay with the fact that I am just beginning, this isn't a sprint, it's a marathon and I will lose the weight because I am proactively trying to get my shiznit together.

So this morning, before eating, drinking or dressing, (I did put my contacts in, so there's at least a fraction of a fraction of an ounce there) I got on the scale just hoping that I didn't gain even more and much to my surprise, I didn't! I actually lost! I am back to 129, which is really my starting point. So yeah, that's 3 kilos gone in a week and a half. That's a little over 6 pounds gone in a week and a half. That's a chunk of weight gone!

Do I think I lost 3 kilos in a week and a half, no, not really. I think my weight is a compilation of everything I've done over a period of time, so it's just that the scale and numbers finally caught up with the rest of my body. They were a little slow on the uptake but they finally decided to give in and follow the crowd and move in the right direction.

I surely didn't expect to see such a dramatic change in the short amount of time since being on the scale last so it wasn't expected, but at the same time, I knew I was making changes, positive changes, so it was really quite expected to happen... eventually.

So here we go again... many small, tiny moves in the right direction have paid off! I'm feeling accomplished and positive and a little assured. I am doing the right thing and it's really paying off, not just in numbers but in the way I am feeling overall.

I hope you all are having healthy, successful weeks!

I am new to your blog, but WOW 6 kilos in 1.5 weeks. That is pretty damn impressive. I'm also impressed with your patience, as my impatience makes me a manic dieter and frankly a bit prickly to be around. ;-) So best of luck, keep up the fantastic attitude!
