What's in a Number?

There it is for all to see. YIKES! My starting weight as of October 1st. I really have no issue letting the world know that number. In fact I really don't know why people get so secretive about their weight in the first place. I mean, if you are overweight it's not like not saying the number out loud leads people to think you are 130 pounds. People have eyes. Ha! Anyways, there it is. I realize a lot of people think we shouldn't focus on the numbers on a scale. I do partly agree with this, but I also think knowing where you are and where you should be is important too. The number is part of the journey, so embrace it and then kick it's butt so hard it will never show up on your scale again.


  1. I agree with you about the number on the scale. I am on that journey too. Lost about 9 lbs so far - wishing it was more, but's 9 lbs that I don't have on my body anymore.

    Good luck to you in your journey. Keep us posted.

  2. Good luck Evey! I hope that you find the motivation you need and find a way to keep on track. Celebrate every time that number goes down, and don't beat yourself up too much if and when it stays the same or goes up a bit.
