Ok, so my scale is not moving...still!
What a pain in the butt.
I know, I know your getting tired of my fixation on the numbers. Believe me I am getting tired of MY fixation on the scale as well.
Then I was asked the other day how many inches I had lost -- HUH??
I hadn't been counting or totalling inches! I just never thought of that.
After that question I have been looking everywhere for some record of my inches from close to my start of my weight loss journey. Do you know how hard that is to find?
I urge you, no I BEG YOU! Please start keeping a record of your measurements for yourself to look back on. So that when that stubborn scale doesn't move or you just need a boost you can see, visually see the difference.
I have lost a total of 74 pounds so far, so who knows what the difference would of been if I had measurements starting from back then. I wish I had them!
But I finally found some measurements from 50 pounds ago.
From 50 lbs ago, I have lost a total of 34+ inches from my body.
Did you hear that?
I SAID I HAVE LOST A TOTAL OF 34+ INCHES FROM 2/3 OF MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY!
So if I calculate an average I could of lost up to 52 inches....if only I had those measurements. However I am so happy to KNOW that I have lost more than 34+ Inches !!!
I feel great!
I am finally liking how I look, althought still don't quite see the 'skinnier' gilr in the mirror yet. I see someone in between, but I think I like her. I hope to love her soon too.
Not bad girlfriend!

Did HE know what he was getting into?
This is a very special day in my life.
So long ago in years, but not so long ago in my head or heart; my DH proposed to me.
We met in a candy store.
Yes we did!
He likes to say I was the sweetest thing in that sweet shop and he knew when he met me that we were meant to be.
(Kinda melts your heart doesn’t it…)
We were both young, me especially and I had only been of age for a short time when this special day happened.
We had discussed marriage to a certain extent prior, with me telling him my ideal proposal…
(I know! I spoke my mind even back then! LOL!)
Well, I knew, yes I KNEW it was coming because he said we were going out to a ‘Fancy dinner’.
These were not words that he used very often, if at all.
So I gussied up, as did he.
He was such a sweetie and took us to our favorite (expensive) Italian Restaurant (sadly it is no longer around).
This is where it gets interesting!
I mean really “Did he know what he was getting into???”
Being a young woman and full of dreams and ideas; I had in mind my perfect proposal. LOL!!
Now him being a young man and nervous as all get out, just wanted to get it out.
This is how it went…
DH: ‘Order whatever you would like Sweetie.’
We ordered wine and our meals with an appetizer first.
The wine comes and he looks deeply into my eyes; takes my hand and says “Ang, I –“
ME: “Not yet George.”
So we chitchat about who knows what after all these years and our appetizers come…
DH again looks deeply into my eyes; takes my hand and says “Ang, I –“
ME: “Not yet George.”
ME: “Not yet George.”
(I mean how romantic is it over ceaser salad?? Get real you know.)
So there were a couple false starts through our appetizers, which of course I diverted.
Then comes our main course…
The waiter manages to set them down and leave, when my DH (courage must have been failing) skips the looking deeply into my eyes and the hand holding and blurts out:
DH: “Will you marry me?!”
Well what was a girl to do??
I mean the other tables heard now and it was over the most delicious cannelloni (of which I had not partaken of as of yet).
So I put my clean fork down and accepted his proposal.
Needless to say, supper got wrapped to go and we were out the door to tell all our family and friends.
Yes, I didn’t have my romantic proposal over dessert, but I was lucky to have gotten my appetizer in and a to-go bag.
We have been happily married a number of years, this year being a Celebratory number. Not sure yet what we will do for that when the time comes, but I am sure happy to have the memories of his proposal and my acceptance to look back on.
It’s good for a laugh every now and then.
So do you think he know what he was getting into???”
