Today's Weigh-In: 215.0 lbs. (new low!)
5-Day Average: 217.0 lbs.
Wow, it feels good to put the words "new low" on there. I've been bouncing around between 216 and 220 for so long now that I just needed something to give me a psychological boost. I've been eating really well so far (calorie-wise) this week, and I was hoping for 216, but I got 215 instead. That's 3 pounds less than yesterday, so I'm not sure it'll stick, but I hope it does. I didn't do anything yesterday to dehydrate myself or anything, so I dunno. I'm just glad the scale is moving again. If it does stick that will signal 15 pounds lost since I started. Yay.
I went to the dentist yesterday for the first time in two years, and guess what? I need like $2000 worth of treatments done (no cavities, but I have a periodontal infection and I need my wisdom teeth removed). That's $2000 that my insurance *doesn't* cover, so that blows. That's also not including the braces that the orthodontist recommended, which would cost me $2600 out of pocket. So that's a kick in the teeth (no pun intended) that I wasn't expecting. It won't affect my goals or anything, but I just wanted to rant a bit.
