How I'm Doing So Far

down again and skinny massage

Down another 2.2lbs this week to 158.6... this means.... my dearies... that I am just 6.6lbs away from my all time lowest as a teen or adult weight.... MADNESS!!!!!

Even though my new goal is 150, I've agreed with my nutritionist to just keep on doing what i've been doing and let my body find its new set point. that could be 155 or could be 145 or something else entirely. I'm happy with the size and weight I am now and am interested mainly in toning what's left, but will go wherever this journey is taking me.

I can't remember if I mentioned already, but I had a minor car accident Friday evening... Monday evening some whiplash set in.... serious shoulder and upper and lower back aches... So Tuesday morning I called and booked in for a deep tissue massage with a therapist who came highly recommended by a friend. I had the massage yesterday afternoon and man did she work me over. It HURT (as deep tissue massages do) but I needed it. Next week she's giving me a combo massage since i'm still tense even after all that. What I found fascinating though was as she was massaging me I think I felt thin for the first time!!! It was interesting to see how different this probing felt when there's not layers and layers of fat to cushion your muscles and bones!!!

One more day of work and tomorrow morning some friends and I are headed to the more remote island of Long Island

I have my two tankinis and my bikini packed (in June last year I never would have thought those words would come out of MY mouth!!!) as well as my trusty camera so will be posting upon my return!

Glad you are feeling skinny :) FYI - no massage should HURT, it should be on the edge of pain but not actually HURT, otherwise your body tenses up and you can't let your muscles relax. If it HURTS, ask her to back off a bit, every body is different and not every body needs a deep tissue to get the benefits of firm massage.

I am a massage therapist so I know a little about it. Only good pain, never bad pain!!

Great weigh-in! Feeling skinny, YAY!! I know it's going to take me a while to get that feeling, even when skinny is where I am. My brain is having a hard time wrapping itself around the idea of a smaller me. heheheh
