Light Bulb Moment
Monday, August 19, 2013
I have to tell you about my NSV: I tried on a skirt from my closet that I have been hanging onto because I love the material. The last time I was able to fasten it was about 15 years ago. Today, I could fasten it! So I thought I'd try on a sleeveless white blouse and if it looked ok I would wear it tomorrow night for our book club birthday celebration. The blouse was huge! I could gather fistfuls of material and hold it out from my body. The last time I had on this blouse it was so tight there were gaps between the buttons.
Our weekend visualization challenge on my BLC team has really opened my eyes. You know how it's weird to look in the mirror at yourself daily and know in your mind you are losing weight, but your body looks the same, well today when I tried on the blouse and it was humongous, it really dawned on me that I am shrinking.
My husband handed me a 20 pound dumbbell and a 5 pound and said, "Here is what you have lost so far...you are really doing it."
I guess I am.
