The fun side effects of losing weight Ö

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Ah, something new is happening and itís something good! Today I put a necklace on and it fit! I havenít been able to wear my necklaces in a while because they were tight on my neck and it definitely showed.

While I can tell Iíve been losing the weight, both by seeing the numbers on the scale and by how my clothes have been fitting, I hadnít yet tried on any jewelry until today.

Itís nice to decorate my neck again, to look a little bit more like I care what I look like when I walk out the door.

I still havenít gotten the haircut I owe myself for meeting my last goal yet, but thatís because Iíve been incredibly busy. Maybe Iíll get that in the next couple days while I have some time off.

But enough of the side trips, itís good to make new ground. I donít always know what that will be until it happens, but the fact that the changes are showing up in a steady stream does wonders for the motivation.

Another thing Iíve noticed thatís changed since Iíve been losing weight with Spark is that Iíve been a lot happier lately.

Itís funny, Iíll find myself driving places with stupid little grins on my face thinking about how wonderful it feels that all these things are happening.

I find myself hardly waiting to get up in the morning to get on the scale to see what it says.

Thereís a little extra pep in my step each day as Iím changing my habits and even just as Iím doing the routine things that need to get done. Itís great. I feel good things are happening!

    Wow, I know exactly what you mean!! I too have a smile on my face and more pep in my step. When I get up in the morning, my first move after the bathroom is to get weighed. It helps to keep me on track and most times, makes me extra happy!

You are doing great, keep it up! And keep finding those NSV's that mean so much!!
