I had a VERY cool day yesterday!! (and I don't mean the weather!)

Friday, January 08, 2010

Because it was so frigid here yesterday, I went deep into the coat closet and took out my LL Bean thinsulate full length coat. Hadn't worn it since last year and I was so pleased that I was able to zipper it up instead of just snapping the top 3 snaps and holding the rest together like I've had to do in the last several years!! When I got to work, I hung it up in the closet and as I did so, I noticed that the size tag inside the coat said Medium!!! Wow, I haven't been a medium in about 8 years.

Then later in the afternoon when I went for coffee at the coffee station, one of my coworkers told me that she THOUGHT she saw me that morning at the end of the hallway talking to Mr. Barber, but she thought it couldn't be me because it didn't LOOK like me (I'm guessing she meant because I look thinner now). Then she told me that seeing me now in that same outfit as the woman she didn't recognize in the morning, she figured out that it WAS me. LOL. Yes, that was me!!!

Then I got an email from a coworker in a different department telling me that she saw me power-walking around the (inside of) building at lunch time with my iPod on and she wanted to know what the heck I'd done to drop so much weight.

Oh, and my day wasn't over yet....I got home and as I took my coat off my husband walked in the living room and said "Hey....look at YOU!!! You look fantastic. You actually look petite. Way to go babe." I'm not petite, I'm 5'6" tall.

And my 11 year old said "Dad, she's looked like this for weeks now."

OK, so I think I had a VERY cool day yesterday!!! I took the Snackwell mini cookies out of my bag and dumped them in the garbage!!! I wasn't taking ANY chances of not holding on to my current weight even if I could have them on my diet!!!!

7 pounds to go and then the hard part starts......Maintenance!!! But until then, I think I'll bask in the sweetness of yesterday. Those days are few and far apart, but when they happen, it's so encouraging.
