Gifts for weight loss

I’ve just had a lesson in the principle that when I declare an intention, the Universe will show up to support it.  Here is the result…a true gift-from-the-universe miracle:

On Jan. 10, I announced that I was going to take part in the 10 Pound Challenge hosted by Newlyweds On A Budget.

However there was something that was hindering me from making the full commitment to participate: I don’t own a scale. In order to participate, obviously I have to be able to weigh myself. Amongst all the other chaos going on, finding a cheap scale (cheap, of course, since I’m on a budget!) didn’t make it onto my priority list.

Last week, I was leaving for work one morning and what should I find in the entryway of my apartment building…but a FREE scale!!  One that someone was getting rid of!!  It had a note on it that said, “Works, but not on carpet.”  Well that’s fine.  For free, I can work with that!

Given my budget situation, another consideration has been that if I lose a couple of sizes, I might have to get new clothes.

However yesterday I got an email through the local Freecycle from someone who was getting rid of three bags of professional clothing (with names like Coldwater Creek and Garnet Hill) in just the size I would need.

So now I have a scale and a whole bunch of new clothing that doesn’t fit me yet, but will.

How’s that for a miracle?!?

Now I just have to get serious about eating better and exercising….  🙂
