NSV~Non Scale Victories!!

Monday, April 20, 2009

It seems as if I haven't blogged in ages...Sorry for such a late update of how my progress is going. But I have some things to share with you all!!

1. I went browsing/shopping and picked up a designer suit on the clearance rack! It was retailed for $250 but marked down to $39.99 and I had a 20% off coupon. I looked at the size on the tag and it was a 12. I grabbed it and headed to the dressing room and it FIT!! I have to admit that in the past it wouldn't have been a suit that I would purchase but since I have been admiring our FLOTUS my style sense has broadened!! I was ecstatic that it fit but would like to tone up and lose about 5-8 more lbs before I wear it!!

2. This past Sunday, a very close friend of mine who has undergone Gastric Bypass surgery was complaining that she didn't have any dress suits in her current size. I asked her what size she was in and she told me an 18. I told her that I had about 5 suits that I maybe have worn about twice each that she could have. Before I took them to her, I tried on a "once" favorite suit and couldn't believe that I once fit the suit to a "T" and now about 1.5 of me could probably fit into it. It was a joy to help my friend out and an additional joy to know that I was no longer that size!!

3. This past weigh in on Saturday at WW, I received my 50 lb weight loss gold ring and was congratulated at my meeting!! It felt great!! There is no turning back!!

Well, my journey continues...I am extremely happy at how far I have come...but deep inside as I am getting closer to my goal the feeling of fear and impossibility arises at times. I think it's because I haven't been that small (160) since high school which was about 20 years ago...I have to continue to have the faith that I WILL reach my goal!! Don't let anyone or anything deter me from where I AM going!!

Remember, that with GOD ALL things are POSSIBLE!!
Until next time Spark Friends... emoticon
