I love the 3rd day

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

My scale tells me the same "story"! I require my weight to be at the new number for 3 days in a row before I will believe that my weight has changed. Today was day 3. I have now lost 18 pounds.

I don't know what it is about 18 compared to 17 or 16, but I finally feel like I am really doing this. I have made significant progress towards a healthy weight. I finally feel proud of what I have accomplished and it fires me up to keep moving and make new efforts towards this life.

What was your "I've got this" moment? Was it a piece of clothing? A specific weight! Someone commenting on your weight loss? I am still waiting for that one :( Please tell me your moment- everyone else's stories help drive me forward!

    Good for you! You deserve to be proud, to lose 18 lbs with an injury and an illness is really something to celebrate!
My moment came when I fit into 3 pairs of pant I had put to the back of the closet because they didn't fit anymore, I wear them regularly again!

    Thx for sharing. I get what you mean about the 3rd day. I don't use this method of tracking actual weight lose. I just weigh myself monthly and sometimes bi-weekly. Whatever number I get from the scale when I weigh in, that number is my number. Sometimes its the same, sometimes its up and sometimes its down. LOL!

My "i've got this moment" occurred when I went to try on clothes and realized that I could wear regular sizes. LOL! I no longer have to go to the "Big & Tall" section. LOL!
