So, I finally decided to clean out my closet tonight. I have to say, it was quite a wreck - I couldn't walk in and didn't really know what I had in there. Anyway, I took the opportunity to try some stuff on. NowI've been on SparkPeople since June and really got serious about losing weight at the end of August. I knew I went down a couple of sizes, just because I'm now wearing smaller sizes, but I didn't realize what that really meant - visually. Tonight I tried on the pants I wore when I was at my heaviest. They absolutely swam on me! It was such a good feeling to really SEE how much weight I lost. It was just so much more impactful than seeing the numbers on the scale or wearing the smaller side...I think it was all that empty space between my body and the fabric.

These pants are also a great reminder of what I don't want to go back to. So, I'm going to keep sparking and keep doing what I'm doing nutritionally and physically. 2011 is off to a great start!

  Congrats on that success that you have had!!!! I'm sure it will continue.I've been in a plateau since Nov.28 not 1 LB lost.I took a Bootcamp to kind of try and kick things in gear.But wound up with a knee injury that has affected my intensity and ability to do some exercise.
Remember too though that even when we are not losing we ARE still living that healthy lifestyle that we seek!!!LOL
