Losing It! 06 11 10

Wow! Last week’s post got a ton of hits and lots of comments! It seems that finally having a 1 in front is a big deal. And, it IS a big deal. A REALLY big deal. For all you ladies out there living with the 2 and working for the 1, it is SO SO SO worth all the hard work when you see that 1. It really is.

I want to also thank the ladies who linked up last week. Ladies who are sharing the weight journey with their readers. It’s not always something that is easy to share, and I am so proud to be keeping company with each and every one of them. Be sure to check out their posts and give them some comment love.

I went shopping this week with My Sweetie, and I had an AMAZING time. Really! Shopping for clothes! I think My Sweetie was ready to buy me whatever I wanted since I had this permanent grin on my face. He loves me so. However, we were frugal. We were at the outlet mall and were very picky about what we bought so we didn’t spend too much. It was just awesome to put on something and have it be too big. And to try on clothes in stores I’d never even thought of trying stuff from. I bought a dress at Banana Republic. I never thought I would be able to wear something from there! Everything we picked out was a little snug, but in ten more pounds it will be perfect! GREAT motivation to keep going wouldn’t you say?

As far as my goals go, I did okay. I’m drinking tea as of late, which can be a problem if I put too much sweetener in it. I really need to cut back on that. And, I did cheat on the fried foods thing and have some homemade chips at Ted’s Montana Grill. Oh my! They are AMAZING!! But, I exercised almost every day and I lost another pound so I’m still going down.

How did you do this week? I LOVE LOVE LOVE reading your stories. You are all so inspiring!

  1. Keep up the great work! I really enjoy reading how you are doing. šŸ™‚ I haven’t hit the 1 yet, but have gotten a lot of compliments from friends already, which is definitely helping to keep me motivated to keep going! We need to see some pictures of you in your new clothes! šŸ™‚

    • Just keep swimming! You’ll be at the 1 soon. It’s awesome to be in the 1s.

      I’ll post pics of the new clothes when they fit right. Probably by July – at least let’s hope!

  2. I am so proud of you!!! I am doing WW for the summer to lose all of that “Back to School” weight that I put on this last year. Keep up the wonderful work and new healthy lifestyle. šŸ™‚ Have fun wearing your new outfits.

    • Sorry – I probably contributed to the “Back to School” weight with chocolate. All teachers need chocolate though!

  3. I was wondering how you would do after a DATE day that always includes food. Congratulations on a GREAT week!

    • Mom, Ye of little faith. I ate smart! Only ate half of what was served me at the Japanese restaurant and had grilled chicken sandwich w/o eating all the bread and a side salad instead of fries.

      Shocking I know. Five months ago, I would have eaten it ALL!

  4. Congrats! That is so exciting that you got new clothes!! šŸ™‚ You are doing wonderful!

    • Thanks ALANA! Just keep swimming girl. You can soon get new clothes too!

  5. Congratulations on another pound down! And clothes shopping and finding things to be happy with is another bonus!

    Thanks for the shout out!

    • Loved the shopping for clothes this time around. Can’t wait until fall. I might need a whole new wardrobe if I keep this up!

  8. Congratulations, Kathy! Really, is there anything better than putting on clothes that you think will fit that turn out to be TOO BIG?! šŸ™‚

    • Thanks Mary! It was a lovely feeling!

  9. I am happy you are happy with yourself! There is no better feeling.

    • Thanks Dottie.

  10. Oh, btw, I tried to use the badge and it is not working for me! What I’ve been doing is right clicking on it, “saving image as” into my pictures folder and then trying to insert it as a picture into my post. It’s just coming up in blue letters as the name of your picture but no graphic or anything! And it’s saving in my pictures as a .com extension. I don’t know if any of this makes sense to you! Just know that I want to use it but can’t seem to get it to show up right in my post. No one else seems to be having issues with it.
