I shopped in three "straight- sized" stores today and bought real clothes (sweaters, leggings, tops, etc). I even bravely tried on something that I was pretty sure wouldn't fit. It didn't but I didn't let that slow me down.

I wore an outfit last night to go out that I wouldn't have dared to 2 months ago. A tunic sweater that hit above my knee with red leggings. I've posted a pic on my sparkpage.

I love NSVs.

Today, I noticed that my pants bunched up when I cinched my belt enough to keep them from falling off. Time for a size down, i think!

I also stopped into my outpatient clinic and they were having burgers and cake for a birthday, and I managed to eat reasonable portions and still stay inside my calorie limit :)

After weeks of negotiating, I enter the job phase of working for Walmart pharmacy. I took my drug test and signed paperwork for back ground check to be made, and went over the job requirements and pay/schedule...waiting for results which I know won't be a problem, I do after all also work for the school district which does extensive checks on their employees..next phase orientation.

I rode bikes with my daughter last night for 1 mile. My legs burned like crazy but a good burn. We are going again tonight. Plus, I started the SparkPeople walk/jog to a 5K program last night. I actually jogged for the 1 minute & felt good. I can't wait to keep that going!

My victory is...I'm going to throw my scales away...when I started I was at 200 lbs, but about the same time I started I also went back to work, I'm on a hot bus, I drink throughout the day, don't eat like I should, but when I do it's been healthier choices...I lost 9 lbs fairly quickly...but now even with daily walking for 45 minutes I'm not loosing anything....I'm stuck at the 191 mark or the scales are just a piece of junk....it's causing me to stress and feel more frustrated than anything. My clothes don't feel as tight as before so I guess I'm just going to skip the weigh ins for now...they just make me want to binge eat.

Realizing this week, that I only really have a issues on my bus (hanging out in the aisles & a few standing up here/there and every time the bus is stopped) compared to others....yes, they are the typical loud chatting K5-5th grade as any other kids will be after a long day cooped up in a classroom...I really do have good kids and a good route. Seems all my venting from last year paid off, now that our routine is getting to normal these are the only two things I find myself repeating daily...thankful for my job and the blessings I get daily seeing these smiling faces.

Tonight I went to my Dad's house and he made his absolutely amazing famous fried potatos and bacon for dinner. I chose to measure out a half cup of potatos (because this is a lifestyle change, NOT a diet!) and I opted away from the bacon. It was delicious, and I didn't screw up anything... I'm feeling great about myself, my health, and my choices!

So this is kind of a weird 'victory' but today I bought new walking/running shoes. I consider it a victory because I have an extremely hard time finding shoes that fit my feet, and so I tend to put off shoe shopping, which then helps me justify not working out because my shoes are worn out - it's an ugly cycle. emoticon

Also, I have got my bum out of bed and walked a mile first thing every morning this week. Go me!
