Default Yippee! Down a size!

Well, it's been 6 weeks since I really buckled down and started believing that I could lose weight, and I'm down 30.5 lbs! I'm doing Optifast and doing 20-30 min 3x week on my elliptical. It has been hard but NOT terrible.

My jeans, which were almost too tight for me before, were falling down, so I went shopping today and had to buy one size smaller in both my jeans and my shirt!!!!!! Can't even tell you how happy I am. I modeled them for my family tonight, and everyone was so proud of me! I've got a long way to go, but I know that I can do it now, where I never believed it before!

I think that's the best feeling. yeah the numbers on the scale may go down but until you fit into a smaller size, you really get that good feeling.
