April 20th has marked the 6 month anniversary of my committment to myself to lose weight and get back into a healthy lifestyle. I have lost 50 of the 75 pounds that need to be gone. I am really proud of myself and feel so much better. I wasn't always fat, just slightly overweight. It has been in the past10 years or so that the weight really increased. As an added bonus, My 26 year old daughter keeps telling me how proud of me she is. She can't wait to go shopping with me to help me pick out some really trendy stuff. I have to admit my clothing choices were very traditional with a lot of overshirts and jackets. Who did I think I was fooling anyway? Now, I want people to see this body even though it is still a bit too large. Do I need people to notice that I've lost weight? not anymore... At first I was getting upset that I had lost 20 pounds and NO ONE noticed, then 25 and still no one but at 30 pounds people started noticing and now not a day goes by that people notice and comment to me how good I look and even a few have started calling me "skinny" (although I am far from it). At this point, I am starting to wish that all this attention to my weight loss would stop and people would see me and think of me as I always saw myself (as normal weight/slightly overweight and definately not as fat(funny how we delude ourselves into not seeing our bodies increasing or that the clothing size has increased once again)).

    Hey Deb, Thanks for adding me as a friend, I added you also :)
    Thanks for leaving a comment. I'm sure your kids have been inspired toward health and fitness by you and your husband's good examples. They've seen first hand the work it takes to stay fit and healthy. Bravo to you both for passing on the heritage of fitness, I am sure it will serve them well.

    I began playing racquetball in college and continued until I switched to tennis 11 months ago. My kids love the drama of racquetball compared to tennis but my daughter still plays tennis with me. Take care and have a great week :)

    Hi Deb :) Thanks for the tennis racquet goodie! You are the first one to give me one, I love it! How are you managing the fall gauntlet? I am eeeking along, but finally got things under control again and lost a little more. Ah, life is like a roller coaster isn't it? Take care and have a beautiful day :)
