Thinking about my progress ...

Friday, March 15, 2013

I read a blog today that inspired me to think about how far I have come, where I am now, and where I want to be.

I have lost over 70 pounds from my highest point and have kept if off for several years now. Over 20 of that was lost since I found this site at the end of July 2012. I have 20-30 to go, but I am feeling so good already.

I bought a couple of new t-shirts recently and purchased the medium. Most of my existing t-shirts are extra large, but I am realizing how big they are on me so I am going to give them to Goodwill. My clothes are all starting to swim on me. emoticon

I have been focusing on my health more than my weight and have written about the exciting changes, but it's fun to think about how much better I am looking. emoticon

    I agree with you about looking and feeling healthier. I like seeing the scale move. I do enjoy less stiffness at the end of the day. It is great to have more loose clothes. Great Job!

    Whoohoo you! It's definitely time to weed out your closet and give those XL's away! And maybe snap a photo of too to really see how big they are on you. Congrats on the Mediums!
