I can see a difference, finally

Saturday, October 19, 2013

It's a brand new Saturday and I made it through the week but ate a little too much sugar along the way, and too many carbs when socializing. BUT today I turned it around and stayed on track, not allowing anything to tempt me. I got really motivated this morning when I put on a favorite light blue fleece top from last year and felt like I was swimming in it! emoticon LOL. THAT WAS A GOOD FEELING and I love the top too much to part with it, so I'll just enjoy the roominess of it for this year. I gave away quite bit of clothing this year and but this is one item I'll be keeping as a reminder of where I don't want to go again. I have something similar two sizes smaller that I'll wear when I go out in public, so its not as if I'll have to "grow back" into this for any reason. Its taken a long time because of the massive abdominal hernia that I have for my clothes sizes to change, but finally, they are. Finally, after more than 80 pounds lost, I can actually see the difference that others always tell me about, and today, my old favorite fleece top convinced me that emoticon thank you Lord !! emoticon

    Hi Patty, It's a great day when our clothes become too loose or we've worked hard and finally feel like it's finally all paying off. I'm really happy for you. Losing 80#s is almost the size of a petite woman + 20 pounds more. I really don't see much difference in myself but others tell me I look a lot thinner than I used to. The only difference I see is that my face isn't nearly as round as it used to be, thank goodness. Keep doing something good for Yourself. Have a great new week!!

    Hugs & Love,

    Jill emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love it when my clothes tell me what I want to hear - it took me almost 100 pounds before people REALLY started to notice the changes.

    It is a great feeling to notice that our cloths are too big for us, when before we were worried that we had to buy clothes next size up. emoticon
