Week 3.....I'm still here

Friday, January 25, 2013

I haven't been good this entire week. But I haven't been terrible either. I had to weigh myself this morning to see what damage I thought I had done and to my surprise the scale had actually gone down. 238.2lbs I thought NO WAY, so I took measurements to see if there were any changes....and sure enough, waist came in 1.25" smaller and hips were 1" smaller. My chest was even .75" smaller and both thighs(which I am terribly self concious over) down .5" each!!! I can't believe it. I am so happpy! I don't know what is different this time, but 3 weeks in and I'm actually sticking to it. I haven't done that in 6 years. I always gave in after week one. I am proud of myself. I don't have the cravings for soda, I don't even think about grabbing one. The same case of pepsi has been sitting here for the last three weeks and I've only had half of one. I never thought I'd be able to give it up! I only drink water and occasionally a cup of chocolate milk.

Thank you spark people for giving me the tools to accomplish what I never thought I would. I can't wait to get back into my "skinny" clothes. They are size 16 pants and x-large tops. The day I get in them I am posting a pic! They have been boxed up since 2008 and I've been holding onto them with the goal to get back in them. This year is gonna be the year I do!

I'm not gonna stop there though, I plan to buy a whole new wardrobe at some point. This is just the beginning. emoticon

    GOOD ON YOU!!!! emoticon

    We're about the same size...and I understand how you feel... don't let it get to you. Remember, you did NOT put the weight on overnight and it won't disappear overnight!!

    I don't weight myself too often, actually I wait till I see my doctor every 3 months and then we see it together!! I find that the best way to tell how I'm doing is by m y clothes. Suddenly my tops and bottoms are looking huge on me...I got some new slacks and they fit fine, but I'll reserve judgement until after they're washed a couple of times...if they still fit okay, I'll get a few pair of slacks. I promised myself I wouldn't do that, but I can't go around in the old ones much longer without being embarrassed.

    Good luck and ENJOY!! BE HAPPY!! You're doing the right thing for yourself. emoticon
