This pic is why I don't give a CRAP about the scale...

I have my life back and that's ALL that matters. My daughter took this pic of me this morning because it's the first time in about 5 years that I wore a necklace. I NEVER do because I think it makes my face look too fat. It still does, :) but I'm glad I did it. I am NOT going to weigh myself until Nov. 1st. I have gone down one pound to 236, but I feel GREAT. I can't allow myself to be defined by my scale and get let down by the stall. All I can do is look at the great things going on and be grateful. That's all any of us can do.

The necklace looks great. It does not make your face look fat.

Now, there was a lady at church this morning that did. It looked like her head had been chopped off and was being held on by the necklace. I wanted to pull her aside and tell her about necklace extenders, but I didn't feel like I knew her well enough to do so. I feel a little bad about that now.

You're right, this pic shows how great you're doing even when the scale is being evil. You're looking great!

great pic!! I agree 100 percent and after today won't be weighing in until Thanksgiving day... time to use the scale as the tool that it is meant to be. Not a friend, not an enemy just a tool :0)

I just came across your blog for the first time in a very long time. The last time I stopped by, you were just back from the hospital.

How exciting to see that you've lost 124 pouinds in a year! And you look beautiful!

Congratulations! I LOVE success stories.

P.S. That name on your "About ME" won't be yours much longer--I hope you're thinking on a new one. Fatty no more!
