Weigh-In Day

Tuesday again. I am doing okay. I know I could be doing better, though. SO that will be the plan this week.  I decided to go through my closet and try everything on because things are really starting to fit me differently now.  These last few pounds really seem to be making a difference.  So I tried on everything.  Even the stuff that was 'too small', and guess what!  It was all so big on me.  All my clothes from last winter are so big now.  That feels really weird.  Even in the beginning when I was so focused I still had a hard time believing that I could actually do it.  That I could actually get smaller and healthier.  But I am doing it!  I tried on a strapless, formal dress from my sister's wedding three years ago.  Back then I had to wear this one piece torture device bra thingy and have everything sucked in and then it would zip.  Yesterday I just threw it on and my husband zipped it right up and it was baggy.  Wow!!!  Anyway, enough of that.  This morning my weight was 179.74 lbs.  I am 1.74 lbs away from my first real goal.  I was 178 lbs ten years ago when I got pregnant with my daughter.  It is funny because back then I had gained quite a bit of weight trying to get pregnant and taking hormones that my doctor should not have given me.  I was so upset to be at 178 lbs.  It is amazing how different I feel coming at it from the other side.  I cannot wait to weight that much.  I am really doing it this time.  Finally!  Well that is it for today.

Bye for now,
