Patting myself on the shoulder

I am so proud of the work I've done so far. It will be one month on Monday that I've been back to my weight loss effort and I think I'm going to have a great weigh-in and measurements. The thing I'm most proud of is the exercising. I've been exercising 3-4 times weekly and kind of feel bad if it's a day I purposely was taking off. I'm craving working out! Who would have thought. The other day I didn't completely feel like exercising then I put on the infomercial for Insanity(yes, those people must be insane to do that workout, can't wait until I'm there with them) and it motivated me to get up and do my strength training. We talked about infomercials at work the other day and several girls were saying they don't watch them. I watch them often and they inspire me. I like seeing fit folks and those who have been where I am. I bought myself a few new clothes yesterday and found that I can now wear a large in shirts. At one point I was a 2X. What a great feeling! I remember a trip to Chicago several years back and I wanted a pair of pantyhose and I wasn't able to find any in my size because the mall didn't have any plus size stores(my boyfriend didn't understand my frustration but I know women can relate) so it's great to know that as I keep up this good work that wouldn't be a problem I will face again.
So, Labor Day won't faze me. We aren't cooking this year and I don't want any of that stuff anyway. My daughter starts school next week so the routine will change from what I've been doing but I think I have a good routine in place right now to be able to stay focused but that's what I have my fellow sparkers here for if I need them! GO ME!!!
