Ok, so today is Saturday, November 15th...I've been "floating along, enjoying the accomplishment I made" for a few months now. It's been so wonderful having people notice that I've lost weight and constantly comment on how good I look! That seems like such a petty thing to be happy about but darn it, I'm proud and I don't care who notices!! I've been enjoying fitting into some of my smaller clothes and although I can't afford them, buying a few new pieces too b/c well...it really looks crappy to be walking around with pants that are sagging and falling off! Especially at work! lol I've been conciously basking in my success, maintaining my weight and all the while knowing that I was not done with my goal. I'm learning to love myself again which became obvious when I realized I was proud of myself! lol
So now, for this past week, I have been tracking again which I haven't done since summer started. My portion sizes were larger than they should've been a lot of times. Not so large though that I gained any weight back thankfully...seemingly enough to maintain. I am on another part of my journey and I'm excited about it. Although I am very happy with how far I've come I realize that I have not yet attained the goals I set out to meet so...onward & well, downward (on the scales!!). I'm happier about life and find I'm looking at things a little more optimistically than I have in a long time, as far as my own self has been concerned! I like the me that is being unveiled, inch by inch, step by step, as I journey along my heart's desire.
