Non Scale Victories
Monday, February 17, 2014
I participated in an interview at UCLA last week where I got paid. It was a research study where they asked you a bunch of health questions.
It was a young woman asking me questions. She asked me did I have heart disease, cancer, etc. Then the question was obesity. I think she was expecting a "no" answer. I said since I was 6 or 7. She said she was surprised because and she just looked at me. That was kind of awesome.
Not that I look like a twig, even though I still weigh 174 pounds I actually have started wearing large shirts in the regular women's section. I have not been able to wear women's regular size tops in 8 years. My top half is bigger than my bottom half (size 8). I bought a shirt at Ross last week from of of my favorite designers where I usually get their stretchy shirts. I got the cotton shirt! I tried it on. I was kind of shocked. Even though I have not lost any weight in a while ( and I have not gained!! and I have not been HUNGRY!!! ) my body seems to have gotten smaller.
I lost 40 pounds and I am not dieing keeping it off.
I can do this!!
