Getting My Groove On!

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

I weighed 112 when I met my husband (at 5'4). That number kind of sort of climbed up, due to wine and romantic dinners, to around 130 when we got married. Over time, along with newlywed romantic dinners, I soon weighed 163.

To make a long story short, I got too heavy for my height. I was "overweight" and not "obese", and really wanted to avoid being obese. It was time to change!

Now I've lost almost 20 lbs. I'm going from 160 to 120. At 140 I'll be officially half way.

Now here's the kicker. I don't know if it's just that I'm more confident and carry myself differently, or if my weight loss is that noticeable on my figure, but I've had men starting to look at me again! I'm married so they don't say anything, but they do look. At 160 that had all but stopped.

It's flattering to be noticed. My husband claims that I've been attractive and sexy at every weight, however I think my weight loss will be a good thing for our love life. He may find me to be more attractive, I don't know, but I do know that my increased confidence will be there!

20 lbs left to go...I'm on track to do it by the first week in August. That will make it 40 lbs total weight lost- that's as heavy as a child! When I think about it, I get so happy that I've lost weight and changed my life. Instead of fries it's now kale, etc. You all know the drill.

My clothes are starting to be so loose that they're falling off. I went down to a 34 band bra band size and not a 36. My size 36 bras are huge! I look like a child trying on her mother's clothes. I put on a formal dress I bought for a New Year's Eve party, and again, it looked like I was playing in my mother's clothes (especially in the bust area, which seems to always be the first place to see weight loss).

My groove is on! My mojo is back! I'm feeling life!!! 20 lbs left to go is no match for me!
