I know I just said I wasn't going to do this...

...but curiosity got the best of me.  I had two more friends tell me that I looked like I had lost some weight,  so I was curious enough to see what that meant.

You should have heard the conversation in my head before I stepped on.

You know if this is high, it doesn't matter, right?


Yeah,  yeah...I know.


No, SERIOUSLY.  You know that you are fit and that you dropped a dress size.  Understand that whatever this thing says won't change that.


I know...I know!  I think. 


NO I THINK!


Okay, okay....I know.  I really know.


So I got on the scale, with much the same curiosity that led me to step on the scale when I was in labor with Bean.  Just to see.  Just to see where the highest ever in my life would be.

Today?  I saw the lowest since about 11th grade.

62 pounds down from Bean.

Gotta admit, that felt good.  I believe the strength work is helping a lot, and of course, I can always get fitter.  But given what we've got going on around here, I'm quite happy tonight.

Now, QUICK!  Where's my ice cream?  And those Reese's trees?

Come on...just ONE...

Nice! I hit my lowest weight since before we got married (13 years ago) right before IMFL. It was also pretty wild.
