I'm going to start.

Today, I'm wearing my size 20 pants. I feel so skinny! I know it is a funny feeling but I love wearing clothes that actually fit rather than being baggy.

My NSV is that yesterday I went with my DH to my MIL's and spent at least 6 hrs. doing yard work for her. I even push mowed for an hr. Also mowed my Aunt's yard next door. It felt great to be able to help someone else. (She has been quite ill for 2 months). Before I lost weight, I was so sick and she'd come over and help me. It feels great to be healthy enough to return the favor.

My big NSV so far is this weekend, I got to wear my wedding dress again. We went to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival...my wedding dress is a renaissance style dress in burgandy and emerald green (it is the only renaissance garb I own). My dress was made for me, and I hadn't tried it on since we were married, and I obviously had gained ALOT of weight since we had married. But when I put it on, it fit BETTER than it did when we got married!!!!!
I don't think that many women can say that.... their wedding dress fits BETTER 3 years later than it did on their wedding day! LOL
That made me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!

My NSV is that my boss came into my office today, looked at me and said "You've lost weight!"

Also, I was shopping today and bought a size 16 skirt!!

I walked to my herbal magic appointment, to the gym, worked out & walked home. 8km in total of walking. Hoping to make it a daily habit but happy I finally took the first step!

Lifeguard - WHOA! That's a lot of walking. Good for you!

Amanda - Do you have any pics of you in your wedding dress? Your dress sounds gorgeous!

Last night at my family holiday dinner I got lots of "you lost weight" comments. It felt good and helped me avoid the many desserts and fattening, unhealthy foods there.

Amanda- I'd love to see a picture of your wedding dress too. It sounds gorgeous!

I purchased a new outfit, Jeans (I haven't wore real jeans in 3 years), a tank top and then a low cut sweater that goes over the tank top. When I wore it everyone told me how good I looked and how much weight I lost. Also I bought a jean jacket in 2x and it is almost too big on me.

My 13 year old daughter asked to borrow my blue jeans. This is funny coming from a girl who always thought her mommy was too fat to wear her clothes.

My 22 yr. old step-daughter brought me a new pair of Levi's that she just bought that were too small for her. She asked if I wanted them , but when I tried them on they were too big for me. Shoot a new pair of jeans for free, and now she has to take them back. (She had a baby 4 months ago and is having a hard time finding the right size for right now). I shouldn't be greedy though, I have almost all her pre-pregnancy clothes now.

A couple for me.

1) Went shopping for some new fall clothes for work as last year's pants are too big. I am down 2 sizes. I am still shopping in the "special" stores, but it felt great to be down the sizes

2) We have a department dinner next week off site. I called the admin who was organizing it to find out what the menu was going to be. When she asked me why, I flat out told her that I was watching what I was eating and wanted to have a light meal. I usually just suck it up and ate what was served. No more, sister!

I don't have any pictures from this past weekend... but I can post some from our wedding.
I'm just so glad to have lost so much weight that I could get into that dress again!

I signed up at the gym my friends attend, and asked them to call me when they go to make sure I go too. I know I'm gonna be really embarrassed at first being the only overweight girl in our group, but it's SO gonna be worth it!
