I am still afraid to say it out loud

I am still afraid to say it out loud. If I say it out loud, will that make me wake up from this dream? I sure hope not!
I re-started my journey to health in late October of 2009. At that time, I weighed 164 pounds. As hard it was to say that out loud, I needed to "own it" to be able to move onwards and upwards.
It is now February of 2010, four short months later and I now am proud to say I weigh 138 pounds. I have lost 26 pounds and I'm well on my way to goal of 125 pounds. I received the sweetest surprise of all today when I met my trainer at the gym and she did my measurements for me and totally blew me away!!
I lost 8% of my body fat! I also lost over 16 inches of me! GONE! DONE!
I am still not quite believing it.
It feels really, really strange to go into a store and pick up a "medium" size top or pants and put them on - and they fit - and honestly, they are on the verge of being ... gasp... too big! Okay, well the clothes, that is the totally fun part of this journey to healthy... and well the new clothes, those are my journey to "cute" LOL!! But it's so much fun!
I'm loving my new healthy lifestyle and plan on LIVING it forever! It's been well worth the work!
