Some of you are still confused

Even after my clarification post, I've gotten a few concerned emails from people thinking that I've *lost* twenty pounds. So I just want to clarify again. No 20 pound loss. The scale literally had the number 20 on it. So I weigh less than... my one year old?

I think something was bent inside the scale, so the spring won't let the dial go past the number 20.

So I threw the scale away this morning.

So: yes, my diet is officially over. No, it is not because I reached my goal weight. It is because I am too cheap to buy a new scale.

Before the twenty pound incident, my last known weight was 167. That was more than a month ago. Who even KNOWS how much I weigh today. (I will bet money that it is *not* 147, though. :-)

Summary:

240: how much I weighed when I delivered Lily more than 18 months ago
167: how much I weighed last time my scale wasn't crazy
163: how much I weighed before I got pregnant
77: how many pounds I gained during pregnancy
73: how many pounds I know I've lost in the last 18 months

diet: OVER

the end.

That is funny that people thought that. Congrats on the weight loss. I am sure happy for you. My baby is still nursing, so no diet - YET! I will lose this weight soon.

I think I can...

Celebration, absolutely!

bit of a weight update, though: as of this morning, I weighed 158. Not entirely sure how I feel about this. But, yanno, whatever.
