One day at a time...

I've been going at this for about seven weeks now. It's been a good seven weeks. When I started back on my fit train this time, I was 203 and I'm down to 188. I actually enjoy the gym (not so much if I'm not in a class or with my trainer - it's so boring otherwise!) and look forward to my belly dancing class each week as well as the weekly session with my trainer. If I'm not sore the next day, I feel a little put out...like I didn't work hard enough.
I love feeling good about myself. I haven't told my dad (who lives nine hours away) that I'm dieting/working out again. Part of that is because I hate telling too many people because then I feel like they expect something that I can't offer up. I'd rather just continue as I am now and maybe surprise him. That would be awesome. I know it would make him (and everyone else in my family) to see me healthy and fit.
I'm thinking about starting a cookie jar savings for when it's time to buy new clothes (already I've had to dig in to the closet for older clothes that I had outgrown several years ago...I'm down to about three pairs of pants that I can wear to work that aren't so loose that it looks like they are going to fall off!). I wonder if $10 a pound would be good...once I hit goal (135), that would give me about $600 to spend...but I know I will need to buy clothes well before then. Not that it's a bad thing, but man, this is going to cost a pretty penny (and every penny will be worth it!!).
