60 lbs. and strangers

Sunday, February 20, 2011

This past week, but especially today has been pretty exciting for me.
1. This week I had two people at work, who I'm not close to both noticed and commented on my weight loss. It felt nice to have people outside of my circle start to notice.

2. Today I stood on the scale and I have lost exactly 60 lbs. from the day I started losing weight. I'm so excited that I hit another milestone.

3. Today was also a measure day. So I measured my my hips, waist, arm, bust and thigh. While my arm and thigh haven't lost a lot, today was a big change in the size of my waist and hips! First of the measuring tape can now touch from end to end, at my hips (largest part of my body) for the first time since starting this journey. Also my waist dropped 2.5 inches in the last month! These measurements mean that since the beginning I have lost 5 inches at my waist and hips since September when I first started measuring.

4. Today at Zumba 2 people who are basically strangers commented that my sister, my mom and I had all lost so much weight. this meant so much to me, especially after a "fat day" on Saturday. My motivation is coming back again!

Finally, my family and I were talking and we noticed that as a family we have lost a total of 152 lbs. That is an entire person! If I were to have predicted 6 months ago that I would be this far I would have rolled my eyes and laughed, but here I am and I plan to continue working towards a healthy lifestyle!

So thanks for stopping and I wish you luck in all your weight loss goals!
