Default Happy NSV surprise!

I went to my daughter's orchestra performance tonight in the school auditorium, and had a great surprise! The seats up front are quite a bit smaller than the others, for some reason. The last time I was there I could barely squeeze into the seat. They have metal side walls and I basically had to slide in and feel pinched the entire time! Well, we arrived a little late and had to sit right up front. I was worried, but when I went to sit down, I just sat right down, no squeezing necessary!!!! Happy Day!

I wonder how long it will take me to really understand that this weight that I'm losing is not just on the scale, but that I've really changed?

Great NSV! It does take a while for our brains to catch up with our bodies, but you'll get there.

Keep up the great job!

That is so nice to hear that you can now sit where you want.

When I read your post I decided to go outside and sit in one of my lawn chairs that was a little uncomfortable at the beginning of the summer.

I fit just right in that one too! You just helped make my day!
