My Doctor retired, so I had to find a new one in a new clinic. I really like the Doctor I chose...she LISTENED and didn't make me feel rushed. We covered a grocery list of topics.
She told me one thing I never expected to hear a Doctor say to me: "You don't need to lose ANY more weight."
I am not planning to lose more, but I'm still working on finding just the right balance of calories for maintenance at my activity level. I have been losing at 1530 calories, so I'm going to eat more and see what the next few days show as a result.
Who'd have thought a Doctor's comment would be a non-scale victory? Here's a photo my husband took of me before I went to my appointment.

I've been looking for shoes to go with the dress I'll wear to my daughter's wedding in June. A salesclerk who fitted me with some of the shoes in his store told me "of course, you won't wear nylons with these shoes." Really? This is totally news to me.
I haven't been staring at women's legs when I've had occasion to see them in dresses, so I don't know what my contemporaries do. Wouldn't their feet stick to their shoes and get blisters more easily?
I need my friends to tell me whether you wear nylons with nice dresses these days or not. That would help me tremendously. My daughters don't, but they are 30ish women. What do 50ish and up women do? I don't want her wedding dress to be invisible due to the reflected glare from my white legs! Lol. I also don't want to embarrass her by clinging to something no one currently uses. Help, please!

Today after a joyous Easter service at Church, my husband and I went to my sister's home where 15 of our family members gathered to eat a jointly prepared meal together
During the course of the day, my Dad, who has seen me every week since I began my weight loss venture 31 pounds and 4 sizes ago, came up to me and said that seeing me in a dress really emphasized how much weight I'd lost. He told me that I'd have to run around outside to cast a shadow. Lol. He said it with pride, to encourage me. If I'd realized dresses showed off the figure better than jeans and a top, I might have worn one before now!
So nice to be noticed even when I'm not still losing! I've been maintaining for a week now!

I hit my goal weight early this week! Yay!
I hoped that today, weigh-in day, the scale would still read 130 rather than more. (My scale sometimes likes to tease me.) It seems as though once I reached my goal, some more weight melted off with no effort.
I weigh 128.6 today. The last time I weighed this was when I was suffering severe morning-sickness while carrying my second child. She'll be 30 this summer.
Wow. I haven't weighed this "little" in 30 years! My BMI is 20.3.
I'm just basking in this accomplishment. I'll talk about maintenance in a future blog. Thanks for your support and encouragement during my journey thus far. I appreciate you, my sparkfriends!
