10 purses

Have you ever weighed your purse with the contents still inside? Yes? No? Well you might be surprised if you do. 

After I stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh in the nurse quickly jotted my numbers down and then asked me to place my bag on the scale. At first I thought this to be a little odd but like a good little instruction follower I complied and was surprised that it weighed 3lbs. She then told me that I have lost the equivalent of 10 of my purses in weight.  Huh. 

I have to say I do feel healthier then I have in a real long time. I've cut out sodas or pop completely and drink only water with the occasional herbal tea and add 1/8 tsp of cinnamon to my yogurt everyday and I measure everything. I mean everything. Even my water so I know just how much I am or am not getting in each day. It really is the key for me to continue with this journey. 

So the next time I sling my purse over my shoulder I can't help but think of how far I've come in just 10 not so short weeks and look forward to the long road ahead of me. And to think that this morning I didn't have my usual contents like my camera, nook,and instax in my purse. I'm curious to see how much that would add to my purse... 

Past Goal: Lose the first 25 lbs- done and passed it!!!
New Mini Weight Goal: Lose 10lbs (for a total of 40lbs)
Lbs left to mini goal: 10-
 totally doable!!!
Total Lbs Lost: -30
