My first milestone reached!!!

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I bought that really cute purse but promised myself I wouldn't use it until I dropped below 180. It is a wonderful, tapestry bag that has rich colors and wonderful lining. Large enough to hold everything I carry, small enough to not get cluttered with my son's legos or pokemon cards.

Each day I would eagerly step on the scale. 185. 183. 185. 183. 184. 183.....

So that purse stayed in the bag in my closet. Occasionally I would pull it out, look at it and sigh. And, of course wonder why the weight wasn't falling off me so I could use the purse.

Of course, I wasn't exercising as hard as I could, nor was I eating as well as I could.

So this past week I have been very focused on everything I have eaten. And I religiously did Week 1 of the Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge. And, what do you know. The scale numbers started dropping and I feel better. Better than I have in a long time.

I didn't deny myself - but rather than have a candy bar - I have purchased amazing dark chocolate that is individually wrapped into small servings. Rather than "eyeball" my servings, I have the measureing cups out.

And it hasn't been as arduous as I thought it would be.

So this morning I stepped on the scale and it said 179.6. Tonight I'll be moving things to my new purse!
