WOW!!! I'm so happy for you that you are clearly losing weight and it's showing so much for you! I love it when my clothing gets looser! And so happy that your special outfit fit so well when it didn't a few years ago! Good timing for that, I suppose. Keep it up! Adding you as a friend. I'm down about 24 lbs from my starting point now and working to hit another 50 by summer.. or whenever it happens as long as I have steady progress.

You are worth having a healthy body!

This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.

Just an update for all my SP friends and supporters... I have lost another 7 lbs this week! When I got on the scale yesterday morning, I did not believe what I had saw, so I had to call my hubby to the bathroom to clarify my weight. When I stepped back on the scale, I was actually one pound lighter than I had thought I saw. I had thought I saw 288 when it was really 280 and when I held still long enough, my hubby told me it was 279!!! I was super excited!!! It has been some time since I have seen that number.

So, to the topic of this subject. I had a funeral to go to and I was trying to find something to wear. I checked out some tops that have had hanging in my closet for more than two years with the price tags still on. Anyway, I picked out one and thought to myself that it wasn't going to fit no matter what I did. I went ahead and decided to try it on and to my surprise, it fit and even better than I thought it would. The last time I had tried it on was over two years ago and it was tight and didn't fit well around my waist. Now, it actually went over my hips and fit nice over my tummy!!! I had to call in my daughter to tell me that it looked good on me... with my mind set of everything looking like crap on me I had to have my baby re-assure me it looked good.

Then, even better was when I went to put on a pair of my pants that just three weeks ago fit me good and they ended up being baggy!!! I had to call in my daughter to show that off cuz I was in shock that just three weeks ago they fit me fine.

This progress is the biggest inspiration for me to keep going on my journey to a healthy me. I am really hoping that by summer I will have lost a least 50 lbs, if not a little more. I am down 21 already... almost halfway there!!!
