12.5 lbs.

A very nice reader (I feel like when I write that I've turned into my aunt and I'm wearing a sweater set and pearls and writing this on some lovely cream stationery) emailed and asked if I would restart the graphic representations of my weight loss again, just for perspective and inspiration. I stopped doing that during the February-March debacle of readjusting my scales and starting weight and not actually dieting and then being vegan for two weeks and then just trying to eat intuitively and discovering that my intuition has been smothered by my more primal urges for pizza and ice cream, but I think now that my manic MUST LOSE 3LB EVERY WEEK OR I'LL JUST DIE phase has passed and I'm on a slightly healthier path, I can start doing it again.

So...thus far in my Reduxing, I've lost the equivalent of:



A very cool garden owl that I might actually buy and stick on my patio so I can stub my toe on it every time I go out and water my flowers to remind myself to never, ever again allow that much weight to accumulate on my body. I mean, a garden gnome is quite a lot. I think if I ever hit goal, I'm going to force myself to walk around with 10 garden gnomes in a sack every time I have a craving for a Quarter Pounder.

Those quarter pounders are quite a teaser, aren't they? I personally love the Big Macs minus the lukewarm lettuce. Congrats on the loss.

Congratulations. I like your equivalent weight loss comparisons. Much more interesting than a wagon full of chicken fat (think Oprah).

Congratulations on the weight loss!!!! That is wonderful news! Your hard work has paid off. I'd high five you if I could...

That's so cute, your owl.

I had a craving for a Quarter Pounder the other day but instead, I got a chicken taco fresco. Still...it did call me.

You're doing so great -- I mean, look at your measurements. 4 inches from your waist! Whoo-whoo!
