The fun side effects of losing weight …
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
Ah, something new is happening and it’s something good! Today I put a necklace on and it fit! I haven’t been able to wear my necklaces in a while because they were tight on my neck and it definitely showed.
While I can tell I’ve been losing the weight, both by seeing the numbers on the scale and by how my clothes have been fitting, I hadn’t yet tried on any jewelry until today.
It’s 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 haven’t gotten the haircut I owe myself for meeting my last goal yet, but that’s because I’ve been incredibly busy. Maybe I’ll get that in the next couple days while I have some time off.
But enough of the side trips, it’s good to make new ground. I don’t 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 I’ve noticed that’s changed since I’ve been losing weight with Spark is that I’ve been a lot happier lately.
It’s funny, I’ll 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.
There’s a little extra pep in my step each day as I’m changing my habits and even just as I’m doing the routine things that need to get done. It’s great. I feel good things are happening!
