The best part of dieting is when I can wear a pair of pants that I haven't worn in a long time !!

*Having people notice I've lost weight
*Feeling better when doing any physical activity (no jiggling, less winded, feeling like I can keep up)
*Feeling more confident and sexier about the way I look
*Being less tired and more energetic once all the extra weight is gone!

Eating healthier leads to eating new foods and/or eating old foods in a new way. I love finding something new to try.

Yesterday, I weighed in and according to the weight loss challenge at the gym, I am down 17 lbs. Today, I feel wonderful.

Stronger, more powerful, I got this.

Removing the word "diet"...eating well makes me feel like I have control over my choices and I yearn to feel THIN again. It sucks to have a body that you hate, a body that you don't even recognize. So, I want those feelings to subside.

Regaining my pre-wedding body! Running, lifting, clean eating, lots of water and patience. Those are the tools that I will use to get there.

I don't diet; hate that word! There are many rewards for changing eating habits, such as better health and losing extra pounds!

You NEVER regret a workout!

Getting into clothes that didn't fit before and feeling like I have a whole new wardrobe!

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

Skinny moments .....noticing my reflection looks good.
Bypassing the "Women's" Section when shopping.
Sliding behind someone in a chair and a wall and not having to suck in or get them to move.
Not being tired all the time
Feeling awesome and energetic everyday !

Getting smaller each day, and having the grandchildren able to put their arms all the way around me when I get a hug....and have THEM notice it too. Makes it all worthwhile, tracking and all.

No guilt over bad choices and feeling that I am capable of change.
