As someone who is overweight, I hate scales. I’d much rather gauge my weight loss by the way my clothes fit (or, more realistically, don’t fit). However, there is something satisfying about seeing that number drop every week.

Though I had a few slip-ups (that cake was calling my name, I swear), I stayed on track for the most part. I’m not going to beat myself up for eating stuff I probably shouldn’t have eaten. It’s all about moderation.
It’s exciting to see my weight slowly dropping and my pants feeling looser, but the best compliment so far came from my boyfriend the other day. While hugging me, he said, “Wow, you even feel smaller.” Now, if he would just put down the toilet seat…
