and for the first time in I don't know how many years, I wasnt disgusted trying on clothes. I am still way heavier than I should be or want to be, but still, it was different this time. I knew that I was losing weight and heading in the right direction. I was pleased with what I saw in the mirror. Even though still too heavy, I knew I was getting better every day. Maybe it was because before, I would get the size I thought would fit, only to find out that I "grew" and needed another size or two bigger. And each time, it would be the same story, bigger and bigger. And then finally, I got to a point where I just went and bought something really big, w/o trying it on. And then I got to a point where I didn't even want to go to the store, just ordered something huge-o online. But this time, it was different. This time I know that I am getting smaller and smaller. So I held off on the capris and just went with a new shirt :)
This week, while not as good as last week, I still lost 1.6 so that makes over 6 pounds for May. That helps me alot to get back on track from my crazy April. Exactly on track actually, for my long term goal. I was ahead of the curve but lost ground last month. So while I am not ahead any longer, I am still right where I need to be to reach my long term weight goal. I am coming up short of my Memorial day goal however. Nothing short of a Miracle will get me there, but I will come in fairly close if I can keep losing. By far a much better place than a year ago on Memorial Day :) That's a positive attitude, right?
And my long term goal, is really just a number. I don't really know where I want to be. Just depends on body composition, muscle mass, etc. If I had more muscle, that number could actually go up by about 15 pounds, so I might be ahead of the curve.
Anyways....My belt is cinched up one notch tighter. There is actually only one notch left on this belt, and then it will be time for a new size!! Yeah me!!!
