Overnight miracle?!

I woke up this morning feeling well rested, and what should I see as I stepped on the scales, but 311.8 lbs !!!!!!

That's 8.2 lbs down from my highest ever weight! WEEEEEEEEEE! Some crazy weight loss fairy clearly visited me last night.

Yesterday my parents went home, so in the morning we went out for brunch. I had "Eggs Benedict". It was deeeeeelicious. Normally I order a side of toast. Yesterday I didn't. I felt quite smug about it. Breakfast was at about 11am. Then I had a very small slice of frozen raspberry cheesecake at around 2pm. Finally, I had 2 pieces of ham and mushroom pizza. It was a relatively naughty day, but I knew it was naughty and tried to moderate HOW much of the naughties I ate...

This morning I have drunk a PINT of water already. I feel like some zen goddess. Now I need to be careful all day, and continue that feeling through the week...

I'm excited at the prospect of getting slim and healthy. I'm excited at the prospect of doing it with you!

Okay, I'm clearly alive. There was no tornado. False alarm!

BUT... guess what?

I've lost weight!!!!!! I know! What are the chances?! I've taken a few walks, done some gardening, and been a little more active. I haven't changed my eating much, but I feel inspired!!! If I change my eating, I could lose EVEN MORE WEIGHT! Shocker!!!!! Whodathunkit?!

As of this morning, 5/2/2010, at 9:30am... I weigh...

314.2 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK GOODNESS!

That 320 lbs weigh in scared the living daylights out of me...

So this week I need to think about things more. Think about what I'm putting in my mouth. Think about getting out instead of staying in. This summery weather is SUPER useful!

I'm also going to take a photo of myself in my undies. Gross right? Well, don't worry, it's not for public consumption! It's just so I can see for myself how I'm doing on my weight loss journey. It's a journey that I've taken a few wrong turns on, but now I own a GPS... so I can't go wrong... right?!
