Well, that's weird!

This will be a quick one because I almost don't know what to say about it.

Got on the scale today (still indulging in that daily weighing!) and it said 120.2.


I was kind of shocked!

I went from 124ish to 123ish right to 120ish??

I was SUPER good the past three days. Really strict paleo, reduced my calories by about 2 - 300 less than usual, and drank a ton of water. Lots of walking and yoga.

Still kind of don't believe it and a little nervous to believe it! I've never seen 120.anything in my life. New lowest adult weight! I am right near my goal. I've been coming to terms the past couple days with believing I will be beautiful even if I don't hit my goal, in fact, I've been trying to let the goal go.

Weight just affects my self-image so much. I know it shouldn't, but I'm not there yet. I know that if I go into my wedding weighing 119/120, I will have a lot of confidence walking down that aisle and getting my picture taken. And I just want that so much! I don't want to look back at pictures or videos and see a self-conscious bride who wants to shrink away.

Back to the routine!

Today, I will add back in some of the calories I reduced by, but will stay strict paleo and continue to drink my water. I am about to leave the house for the dog walk.

I will leave you with what I got done last night: the table names I am making for the tables at my wedding - they are all named after mountains that Chris and I climbed to become Adirondack 46ers :) The will eventually have photos of Chris and I at the summits in the blank spaces:

Super Proud of my Craft Skill!


  1. Congrats on almost making your weight goal! LOVE the table name cards. Great idea!!!!!!!

  2. What a nice idea for table markers!

  3. Your weight actually doesn't surprise me. I often find that giving my body a few higher calorie days and then dropping back down will cause a "whoosh" weight loss. Personal observation with my own process. Very happy for you!
    Love the table markers! Cool idea.

  4. I love the idea of your table markers - so creative! And babe, you are going to look and feel confident and beautiful on your special day no matter what! Ok? I find it very hard to believe that if you were at 122 on your day instead of 120 that it would affect your confidence or your happiness THAT much. (And yes, I'm noting the irony of my words here: me- the one with the severe body image issues, potkettleblack.) Do you have any idea just how radiant you will be in that beautiful gown, marrying the man you love? Do you have any idea just how radiant you are now? Please take this in the spirit it is meant. It is not criticism, it is genuine concern.

  5. Congratulations!! That's so awesome!!

    The name cards are beautiful, and what a romantic, awesome idea! :)
