Things are looking down!
This weeks loss was 1.5 pounds! Not as big a loss as last week, but I'm convinced that if I keep doing what I'm doing(daily exercise, drinking plenty of water, and tracking points) that by Thursday's WW weigh in, I'll be down another .5 to 1 pound! TFTS gals, please don't get wigged out by the scale above. I joined in on the May Day Challenge late, and that's 26 pounds lost since January, not since joining the challenge. However, I am so glad that I stumbled upon the challenge! I think that extra bit of accountability has kept me working at losing weight this summer. I really hope a NEW challenge begins when this one ends as I still have many pounds to lose!
On Friday, I went shopping with my dear, dear friend Trish. Who does not have a weight problem,bless her heart. In addition to having a ball and nearly laughing myself sillier, as I always do with Trish, I got a big kick out of this... Tried on some jackets and blouses and everything fit! And they were all a size Large! OK, I realize that a size large is, well, LARGE, but when you're used to EXTRA large, putting on a Large and having it actually fit(not hug the fat rolls) is SUCH a good feeling! Even better, yesterday I was in Goody's, where the clothes are always too small. I tried on some size 14 pants and THEY WERE TOO BIG! One pair nearly fell off! IT WAS GREAT! Considering at the start of school last year I was wearing a tight 16, this is a huge thing! Well, not so huge anymore! :D So when I head back to work in a couple weeks, I'll be down at least one size and maybe two. What? Did I try on the size twelves? Nope. I was so jazzed from the 14s being too small that I didn't want to jinx it!
