Happy Sunday, everyone! First things first…I lost 3.6 pounds at weigh-in this afternoon! My total loss is at 19 lbs. and I am officially in Onederland! Woot! 😀 There is no longer a 2 in front of my weight. My goal for the week was met.
My next goal is to hit 20 lbs. I’d like to do that next week, but am not sure that is a goal I want to commit to with Thanksgiving on Thursday. I am also uber close to my 10% goal. It would be awesome to hit them both in the same week.
Yesterday, I went clothes shopping for the first time in months. It was past necessary to buy some new clothes, especially pants. I was holding them up with a belt and they were baggy everywhere. I know for some of you a shopping spree is a fun event, but for me they usually end up in self-flaggelation and a bag of my favorite potato chips.
I went to the store hopeful that I wouldn’t come out empty handed. I perused the racks and picked out some pants and a couple of sweaters in sizes I hadn’t worn for awhile. I headed into the dressing room and prayed for the best. Well, they fit! 🙂 Just about everything I tried on fit and I did a small victory dance in there. I do have somewhat of a muffin top with the pants that I bought, but I didn’t want to go bigger for fear they would stretch out and I’d be in this position again sooner than I needed to be.
Needless to say I was thrilled with the outcome and it strengthened my determination to continue on this path to health. I am thankful to God for his guidance and strength when mine is low and for the people he has placed in my life to support and encourage me along the way in this journey I am on.
Do you enjoy trying on clothes? Do you have a good support system? Are you ready for Turkey Day?!! 🙂 Have a great week and Finish Strong!
