-25 and counting

If you've seen me lately, you may have noticed I'm missing something. 25 pounds. Well, 27.9 pounds to be exact. I've got more to go, but feeling great about my progress thus far!Those used to be my favorite pants!
Not to toot my own horn, but I've gone from a size 16 down to a 12 or sometimes, even a 10... depending on the manufacturer.
The last time I checked, I was down over 8 inches. (I haven't checked in a while though)
I've been doing weight watchers. Basically, that means, I'm watching my portions and making healthier decisions about what I'm putting in my mouth. I'm also exercising 4 to 5 times a week.

A couple weeks ago, I gathered all of my too big clothes and got rid of them! Dr. Phil says that you should get rid of 'em and never look back. If you keep them, it's like giving yourself permission to go back to your old size. I'm not going there. Ever again!
I'll let you know when I've reached another milestone worth sharing. Until then, Pounds lighter! (that's what my cute ww friend Carol tells me at the end of our meeting. Carol, I might add, just turned 75. She looks great! She's been a member for something like 20 years!)

I almost forgot the song of the day!! Oh my!
How about Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen

You should be tooting your horn. It is hard to loose weight and that is an accomplishment worth celebrating! You look amazing! And please, send some weight loss vibes my way. :)

Way to go! You are amazing! I have been exercising since Jan. and so far...I have lost a couple of inches, but not a single pound. Oh well. I'm telling myself that I've just converted fat to muscle. Right? You are amazing!

AMAZING! You look AWESOME! I totally agree with Dr. Phil... I've lost weight in the past... nothing like this time, but enough to go down a size... and I've always kept my clothes "just in case"... not this time! Every pair of pants that were that size and the shirts that were THAT size are OUTTA HERE! Haven't even looked back for a second! I'm actually considering weight watchers just to lose a few more unwanteds (maybe7 or 8) and then just to help me be better at always making healthy choices, rather than just most of the time!
You should be SO PROUD of yourself!!!
