Amazing (to me!) Non-scale Victory

Thursday, June 27, 2013

My daughters are normal height women with tiny figures. (well, except in the bust.)

This is a photo of us at Christmas when I weighed almost 144 pounds.
My elder daughter is on the left in white, and my younger daughter is on the right. (She's the one who just got married.)

When visiting my elder daughter's new home last Sunday, she gave me a blouse which she said she just never wore and thought it would fit me. That was a hard concept to wrap my brain around! lol. I still don't see myself as slim... and certainly not as slim as she is! BUT! Here is a shot of me in that blouse today... weighing 124.2. I like it! It fits!

    Congrats on the NSV! Those victories are a mental/emotional connection which are usually much harder to do than numbers on the scale. Enjoy the victory! Lovely family!

    That is so lovely. You look wonderful. I have the same thin niece periodically gets rid of clothing and gives it to me. I am always surprised that I fit the small sizes. I love your Xmas picture and your new blouse picture. Your daughters are lovely as is their mom.

    Love this new pic -- and what a terrific blouse!

Here's hoping your eye apt went well -- my multifocal contact lenses changed my life! Have some multifocal glasses too, also just great. It took a new optician with really up to date equipment and lots of patience to achieve this particular miracle . . .

    You look emoticon ! I like the blouse, too! How wonderful to receive, not only a gift of confirmation on your weight loss, but an actual tangible gift! Keep at it!

By the way, your girls are beautiful. They take after their mom!

    Yes, you are slim! Yes, you look fantastic!! Enjoy.

Oh, and one thing I recommend for changing your self image to reality is lots and lots of shopping. You don't have to buy excessively, but spend lots of time trying on things and looking in the mirror. You have a new style to develop now, you know. Congrats!!
