I'm Overwhelmed!

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

I'm Overwhelmed by happiness right now!

Since deciding this is the perfect (for me anyway) spot to halt weight loss and concentrate on toning and maintenance I decided to see if I was really up for it.

How can you do that? I mean only you yourself can decide what is the right point for you to stop weight loss, right?

So I decided to try on some "fit into later" dresses, tops and knitwear etc.


I felt like I was in one of those dress up games - trying on one thing after the other with perfect and some almost perfect fits! OH my GOSH! Ok so now I've identified I'm happy where I am, both in mind and by doing this little test. Phew.

Now I know I only need to tone a little and I'm done.

There's this red pencil skirt dress that just took my breath away - it's got beautiful black lace around the shoulders and down the front as well and I never, ever thought I'd fit into it because the size on the hanger was wrong - it wasn't a size 14 - it was a size 10. And it fit, snugly, but for the first time, fit and it looked awesome.

Also took my measurements for good measure and realized I've lost an inch around my waist. I've never been 27inches around my waist - like ever!

38-27-38 is mind boggling for me! Just what I wanted.

With a bit of toning I bet I can streamline even further!

I'm truly amazed - sparkpeople has changed my life because I wasn't nearly as fit and healthy the last time I lost the weight, and even at 55kg, my lowest, I was a mess and had a belly!

Anyway, time to buy new clothes! emoticon

    Great job! I wish you luck in staying mindful and maintaining :) I saw in the other journal you remarked that your bmi is within "healthy" range which is awesome - I've never been within that range as an adult and I hope to join you in the coming months :) for now, high fives to you!
