'Nuff said!  Finally finally finally I triumphed over my plateau of weight loss!!  I know I'm losing inches and my body is changing dramatically but the scale wasn't budging.  I shook my scale. I jumped on and off and on it again. I took the battery out and put it back.  I even moved it to the opposite end of the bathroom.  For 7 days it stayed on 39 pounds of weight lost.  I was dejected, depressed, frustrated, angry, and finally I just resigned.  I figured if I just stayed on the good path that it would eventually come off.  And this morning…hooray!!!

I received this message in my email today from Abraham:
From your human perspective, you often believe that you must work hard to overcome obstacles and satisfy shortages and solve the problems that are before you; but often, in that attitude or approach, you work against yourself without realizing it. Attention to obstacles makes them bigger and more stubborn; attention to shortages makes them bigger and prolongs them—and attention to a problem prevents any immediate resolution or solution.

I needed to release fear, thoughts of lack, and obsessing over that darn scale before it would move.  And it did.  Now to continue my journey!  I begin my second three-week session of shots today so it's on to the next goal!  Feeling better and better each day.  By the way, the woman at my doctor's office who has paid for my last two sessions offered to do so again.  She's so sweet and it is such a generous offer but I declined.  I hope she pays it forward to someone else.  And I plan on doing the same thing next year!

So just call me the Incredible Shrinking Woman.  That's what my co-workers have renamed me!  Joylicious!~


  1. Hey, you incredible Shrinking Woman, you! Congratulations! I knew that once you got off that silly plateau you'd continue on your shrinking journey.
