I realized something this weekend... my size 22 jeans are too loose now. I impressed my daughter with the fact I can now pull them off without unbuttoning or unzipping them!! <BR> <BR> Also, I found a cute rather form fitting denim dress while thrift store shopping this afternoon, and didn't need a 2x, the 1X fit just fine! Tue, 15 May 2007 18:26:29 EST I AM excited about this weigh in!! Not only did I keep the weight off that I lost when I had the flu, but I lost another 2 pounds! I'm down 11.5 pounds!! Woo hoo! Wed, 9 May 2007 09:41:12 EST not getting excited about this weigh in According to my weigh in, I lost 6 1/2 pounds. Unfortunately, it was due to a nasty stomach virus.

Ok, the fact I eat way too much and don't exercise are really the reason. But, I just found out today that I'm hypothyroid. I don't know what dosage of meds I'll be on yet or anything. I am hoping that once my levels are stabilized though, and I actually start feeling better, I'll be able to lose weight. This gives me a little bit different perspective on my weight loss journey.
