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.

    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.
