Stop toying with me.

The scale is messing with my head. Look at that weight over there in the sidebar! Look at it. 140.0 lbs again. I'm so close to the 130's I can taste it!

I know that once I hit 139.x I'll jump up into the 140's a few times (with the daily weighings the scale goes up and down), but I'd so like to see that 13x.x number. I know I'm getting close to my goal, but seeing a 13x.x number would make me feel even closer.

Although, I was looking at my old weight info from when I was at goal, and I realized that even though in theory my goal is 135, I liked the way my clothes fit when I was at 132-133. I'll see how I feel when I get to 135; I may have a little further to go than I thought.

Even so, I'm getting there.

Come on, 130's!



P.S. Did you notice? I added a sidebar full of links to other blogs. If you've commented in the past you should be on it, and I also added links to some other blogs and sites I've enjoyed. If I missed you, let me know.

I may pare down this list later, but for now the more the merrier. Oh, and feel free to link to me off your site, too. I've really enjoyed connecting with everyone. I've been floored by how supportive the blogger community has been to me and to each other. It has truly made me feel like I'm not in it alone. You guys are amazing.

I hate being on the brink of breaking into the next 10lb increment. it seems so close, yet so far away. I toyed with the 140's for soooo long I would get there, and then I would jump back up, never could seem to stay there, I'm really hoping to get there soon!

I'm pouting! You forgot me! LOL

I was in the same boat with the 150's! GRRR! Up and down!

The anticipation for that lower number can be torture. When I tried losing weight the first time, I got down to 201... I was so looking forward to breaking the 200 barrier. Alas, I plateaued, got discouraged, and gave up for a time. Shame on me.

You'll get there soon enough... but doesn't the difference between 140 and 139 seem greater than others in the 140s?

good luck!

lora! I would never forget you! You're on there ... I remember seeing your blog over the weekend, so I suspect I added you but didn't save. I apologize for any heartache I caused. ;-)

I agree with all three of you. What is it with the 0-ended numbers? They are out to mess with our brains, and somehow the difference between 139 and 140 *is* greater than 144 and 145. It seems like math has different rules when it comes to weight loss, right?

That's too funny! The scale really is messing with you! But that number will taste so sweet... you've worked sooo hard!

Thanks for the support, guys.

STUPID SCALE!

We have the same goal weight. I would LOVE to weigh 130, but my sister calls me anoerexic when I drop below 135.

By the way - I LOVE Six Feet under, too. The season finale - the very last episode is so freakin' amazing! You must check out Big Love and then Weeds!

Amy said...

You WILL get there soon enough. I mean, we're talking 10th's of a pound!

I've never watched 6'under, but LOVE Big Love and Weeds!

It is so close and you will be there soon and stay there! Tell that scale to quit the games!

p.o.m. - don't tell me, don't tell me! But thanks for the motivation, because motivation to watch the show = motivation to work out.

ashley - It'll taste sweet? Uh oh ... how many calories do you think it'll be? ;-)

mmalloy, I just told it. Grrrr.
