Weight Loss Wednesday

Please excuse me if you sense some sassiness or crankiness in my post, I'm a wee bit grumpy. We've had really great weather these past few days and today got hit with high winds and 6 inches of snow. For those of you who have been playing along, you know Michigan, among several other states, had has had a horrible winter. And I am beyond over it.

I lost another lb, putting me at 47 lbs lost. I'm excited, but also slightly anxious, because I am back in my cycle of staying the same and then dropping. I miss the weeks where I lost 1-2 lbs a week. But hey, I will get there, right?

I have two things I wanted to share this week.

The first is that I had to do an online health assessment this week for work. After answering all the questions, a little box came up that read

"Megan- Based on the information you provided regarding your age, height, weight, and waist measurements, you are considered overweight and should begin a weight loss plan. Would you like us to help create one for you?"

I. Wanted. To. Scream.

I've lost 47 lbs and I am still considered overweight. Which I know, but still. I don't want some computer telling me that! It felt like a slap in the face. I have worked really hard to get to this 47 lb mark and I am damn proud of it, thank you very much! And no, I don't need your help. I'm doing just fine.

Maybe in a few months I can edit my assessment and they'll tell me "Megan- WOW! You have a rockin bod! Keep it going!".

The second thing I wanted to share is a little bit happier.

I decided to do some major "spring cleaning". (Since, you know, it FELT LIKE SPRING AND THEN THE POLAR VORTEX DECIDED TO SHOW UP AGAIN). I went through every single article of clothing and tried things on. I ended up filling two garbage bags full of clothes that are too big. That made me feel damn good! Usually when I do this, clothes are too small! Not anymore! I am slimming down, toning up and clothes are getting bigger. Take THAT, health assessment!

Have a good week, everyone. Stay warm and dry!
