-When the sight of your underwear-clad self in the bedroom mirror reminds you of a little girl wearing her big sister's panties.
-When you find you no longer worry about your double chins but have started worrying about turkey neck.
-When your doctor with no bedside manner quits asking you how long you've been pregnant and instead mumbles, "just keep doing what you're doing."
-When you come to enjoy flapping your flying squirrels and saying, "That used to be filled with fat!"
-When you realize you have walked over two miles and your knees don't hurt.
-When you sit down at church and it suddenly occurs to you that you didn't notice the step-climb coming in.
-When the church lady who disapproves of everything about you mentions that you look different and asks if you've dyed your hair.
-When that same lady comes and and tells you she's noticed that you are losing weight and it makes you look older.
-When her friend then adds "you need to eat a cheeseburger."
-When your co-worker who is gaining weight insists you must try the dessert she brought to staff meeting.
-When your Bible study group makes a rule that everyone must contribute to the donut fund, whether you eat them or not.
I'm not even half way to goal and have experienced all of the above (well, more or less). Sparklers, if you are going to undertake this weight loss quest, I can give you a very important piece of advice: sense of humor, don't leave home without one.
Hugs. Purrs. Bye.
