Wooo hooo for weight loss and some new challenges

I'm down a whopping 0.8 pounds. But, that's a step in the right direction and I am happy for it.

I'm also admitting that I have become a mulitple times a day weigher. Seriously, every time I walk into my bathroom, I jump on the scale. Not only do I weigh myself (after I've used the bathroom of course, in case the urine in my thimble sized bladder somehow weighs over an ounce or two), but I try to guesstimate how heavy my clothes are that day. I know, seriously, I sound like a nut. So, recognizing this obsessive and unhealthy behavior, I am putting away my scale until next Thursday. Instead, I'm going to put my obsessive behavior into achieving some goals.

My challenges between this Thursday and next Thursday (Christmas Day) are:

* actually finish mailing out the Christmas cards before Christmas Day
* give myself a pedicure - my toes need some lovin' before Christmas Day
* move-it, move-it for at least 60 minutes a day for today and the next 7 days
* spend 8 hours organizing the house (we still have some areas in unpack mode)

Haha - I weigh myself after I go to the bathroom too! Glad to know I'm not alone.

I weigh myself first think in the morning after I use the bathroom, stark naked. (Sorry for the visual.) Gotta be accurate, you know? Then, too, when the doc's scale is more, I can comfort myself knowing that I'm wearing clothes there and have eaten.

The best thing that happened to me lately is the batteries in my scale dying.

Excellent goals this week, Mary! I might steal one or two of 'em.

I've gone through the weigh constantly phase before as well. Whatever works, right? :) Congrats on the .8 loss!
