This has been a trying week! My daughter and son-in-law came in from California for a visit, Mother's Day, an 18th birthday party, eating out numerous times and to top it all off--I came down with a horrible cold. All of this did cut into my exercise program and I must admit that I did stray as far a eating--but it must not have been as bad as I thought as I weighed in today and had another loss. I am now down a total of 44 pounds. This is so exciting. I need to get back on track now and focus on getting in all of my exercise and proper eating.
We visited friends and family this week and it felt great when they all mentioned my weight loss. Many hadn't seen me since I started and had no idea that I was trying to lose. They all wanted to know how I did it. It was a good feeling--almost as good a feeling as buying clothing that is smaller than I have worn in many years. My daughter picked out a shirt for me and I told her that it just wasn't my style and she told me that it's the new style for the new me. That felt better than eating an ice cream sundae~!!!!
