When I returned from my long-weekend of starvation at the lake I weighed in at a spectacular 169.5 pounds. I scoffed at this and replied "Yeah right, that won't last long once I can get some food into me!"
Uhmm... Well I got lots o' foods into me and I'm holding steady at 169.5 so I guess it's not one of those random get your hopes up phantom weigh-in's after all! What does this mean? 
For one I've achieved my second ten percent weight loss goal which is pretty fantastic. Also I'm only half a pound away from having a BMI that is considered "overweight" rather than obese. The more exciting, at least to me, part of this weight is that I have also reached my goal weight to reward my self with a hair cut! Sweet lord I thought it would never happen! 
 I'm going to book an appointment for next Saturday and come inches will be coming off of this rats nest I've got going on and instead of having roots so long it looks like I've only coloured my pony-tail my hair will be a blessed shade of sun-kissed golden blond. A while back in a vlog I rambled on forever about eh actress whose hair style I could say I most try to emulate and couldn't remember her name. Angie, bless her heart, unlike me was able to come up with that name. So to give you an idea of what Christina Applegate style I'm talking about here's a picture.

I've been thinking recently and trying to remember the last time I was at this weight or somewhere similar and the only thing that seems to be sticking out in my mind is a memory from middle school. I remember so clearly, I must have been about 12 or 13 years old and I had just been to the Doctors for a check-up where I was told that I needed to lose weight. What did I weigh? 152 pounds.... I was so devasted because I really didn't think that I was fat. 

Now I think geeze 152, I wasn't fat but maybe for my height and age this was too much. Either way I'm now two times older and pretty darn close to that weight again. A weight which is also only 12 pounds away from what is considered a "normal" BMI for my height. 

I can't help but think if back then the Doctor had a different approach to telling me to lose weight if things would have turned out differently. Cause even then my response was to drown myself in food and therefore further perpetuate the problem. I have for a long time used food to make myself feel better and only now do I understand this catch myself sometimes and am able to ask "why is it you want to eat that so bad?" I guess this is all part of our band journey huh? 

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends. It's miserable here rain rain and more rain. Oh and my roof is leaking so some guys were here today to take out part of the ceiling in my bedroom... Yeah this house is awesome!
