Had a great weekend in Chicago for our nephew's 5th birthday party and my neice's dedication at church.

The cooler temps were a welcome change. I took a sleeveless dress and had to wear a sweater and leggings of my sister's. It's normally very humid and in the high 90's in St. Louis/Chicago in the summer and the high on Saturday in Chicago was 68.

The reason for the back story is my sister and I have never been able to wear each other's clothes. She has always been able to wear anything of mine, all be it very big on her but I have never ever been able to wear anything of hers.

I told the family I was going to have to make a stop on the way to the party because I needed something else to wear and my sister suggested the sweater and leggings. I looked at her like she was crazy and said oh yeah, sure. She assured me they would fit. And they did. I got many compliments on my outfit for the day.

Amazing strides for me even tho I have lost and gained the same 10 pounds in the last 2 months 3 times. I am not complaining. Do I wish I could say I have lost 60+, YES! But the changes that are happening to my body are welcome! I just wish the changes in my brain and how I see myself would catch up. I know it will happen over time. I guess it is just something I am going to have to get used to. I still catch myself looking for the biggest size of anything I shop for but need to realize I am nearly out of plus size clothing. This is something I haven't been able to do nearly my entire adult life.

I am making GREAT strides. Watch out world, here comes a more fit and healthy Nic!

    Keep moving forward, my friend. The outside and inside will catch up. In the meantime, keep doing what you have been doing. A healthy lifestyle is about the journey.

    It takes a while to sync the mindset with the changes to our bodies. Don't give up and you will achieve all your fitness goals.
