Last Friday I was 0.4 pounds away from my goal. But then I ate and drank with abandon on my date on Sunday. And I had sushi with full sodium soy sauce (twice) yesterday. And then there was the wine. I felt bloated and swollen and downright nasty as I approached my mid-cycle AF day today.
I jumped on the scale this morning anyway and, much to my great surprise and delight, I won my Dietbet! I actually beat my goal by 2 pounds!!! I sent in my final photos and they were accepted this morning, so I am officially a challenge winner. Yay! I should find out later this week how much I will get, but that is not the real win. The real win is that I did not stop my life to do this. I have been out and about and have made as sane as possible choices. And I did it.
That being said, it did make me feel a little bit too scale focused which can be a slippery slope for me, so I am going to take the summer off from signing up for another one. I may do one in the Fall after a summer of living and feeling good regardless of which number the scale reports to me.
But a win is a win, and I am going to claim this one. :)
