Last night I decided to take my measurements. I've been dreading this but wanted it accurate so with a week into my new way of eating, it was time. Reluctantly I dug through my sewing kit, anxious to be done with my starting measurements.

I took a deep breath, tried to relax and checked the first one. OMG! I felt myself spinning. I had an idea where I was at but THIS number, in the 70's? How could that be right? Grabbing hold of the counter I took another deep breath. Slowly I looked back at the tape, in total disbelief. I pulled the tape away and took another look. Surely someone was playing a trick. Alas, I was playing one on myself. I had the tape backwards. I started with the end of the tape at 100 something, not the beginning at 1. WHEW! I let out a half laugh, half sigh of relief. The second try was a number I expected.

Don't try this late at night when you're exhausted!


  1. What a nice mistake to make! Humor is good.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Looks like we have about the same wt loss goal - mine could have been called "Project 78.0"

    Looking forward to traveling this journey together - I need all the help I can get!
