January 1st - October 1st

I weighed myself for the fall challenge today. The result: 194.4 pounds. That is 20.1 pounds less than I weighed on New Year's Day this year. My reward is a trip to the clay art studio to paint some pottery. I have been wanting to go there for a while, but I was waiting until I earned it.

My mom and Grandma were over for a bit today and both of them commented on how much weight I have lost. I am almost 40 pounds down from my highest weight. My dog, Stanlee, weighs 40 pounds and carrying him around is tough. I can't believe I use to do it everyday on my own person.

My husband was looking and at our wedding pictures (August 2009) and said he hadn't realized how much I had lost until he looked at those pictures. My face is much thinner.

I can definitely tell, but it is nice to hear it from others as well.

    Isn't that wonderful when others notice? You are doing so well. Great attitude, too.

    It is interesting, isn't it, when you lug something around equivalent to what you've lost? I realize there's a different between the dead weight of, say, a bag of bird seed or the squirming weight of a pet and fairly evenly distributed body weight - but still!!! It's no wonder we have so much more energy and vim after losing even 10 pounds, much less 40 or 50 or 100.

    Good for you - savor the changes you're creating and enjoy your time at the studio. It sounds like a refreshing treat.
