I did it. Got below 210 for my birthday, actually ON my birthday yesterday. I did manipulate the system a bit. I was really waterlogged, so knew I'd be dropping a pound or two by today or tomorrow. My ears were so stopped up it wasn't funny.
I got up and started my birthday with a good workout. I didn't drink much during, just what I felt like drinking, so when I got home I was 210.4. I was really tired so I decided to go back to bed, hoping that when I got up I would be less since I'm always less in the mornings. Got up, still the same. I should have eaten breakfast then since it was after 9:00, but I got on the computer and got sidetracked. Then nature called, so after that I decided to strip down and get really honest with the scale, hoping that made a difference. It's so sad, isn't it? I'm a bit embarrassed by how much I wanted it and I've never accomplished a weight goal, but I really, really wanted to see 209 yesterday. I got on that scale and was 209.6. Yep, I did manipulate the system a little by not drinking a lot of water or eating breakfast until late, but this morning I was 209.8 so it wasn't far off. I've woken up late and not eaten breakfast until later before and haven't been that low. I have one of those scales that tells you how much fat, water and muscle you have so I wasn't dehydrated. I am sooo excited and quite hopeful that I'll lose these next 10 lbs by New Year's Day!
My birthday was good. My oldest gave me some silverish snowman earrings he picked out just for me. He did a great job, I would have picked them out myself! The next son gave me a watch that was pointed out to him by his daddy. Great work, son. Then my daughter gave me some speakers that can be used by an Ipod. I don't have an Ipod. Then, James gave me a computer printout of an mp3/mp4 player Ipod Nano knockoff he won me on Ebay, but it's not here yet. I'm SO EXCITED!!!!!!!! Can't wait! I mentioned once how much I'd love an Ipod, but I know we can't afford one. It was a great surprise! Now, hopefully it gets here soon!!!!!!
It has 7 equalizer modes, ebook function, video function, fm radio, a lot of different music file formats, and more. Man, am I excited!!!!!
