Total Weight Loss

Easing Right Along...

This morning the scale read 179.2!  That is down 0.4 from yesterday!

This morning I got a skirt out of the closet with a size tag that read 12/14.  I put it on and it fit nicely in the waist, but still wasn't quite right in the hips.  It wasn't too tight, but it had spandex in it, so it clung to every bulge.  I decided to give it another few days and try again.  I'm wearing a skirt now that is almost identical to that one but it is 16.  It is really too big, but has an elastic waist so I can get away with it.

I think I'm in the groove with regard to eating.  I'm eating food that I like and keeping my portions small.  I'm keeping to food that I prepare from fresh/raw ingredients.  Last night's meal included lettuce that I actually picked out of our backyard garden only minutes before!  I love it when that happens.

Exercise is still a challenge, but I'm working on it.  I feel so much peace with food now, that I know I'll get to that same place with exercise in due time. 

I know I still have to be diligent in both areas.  That I will do with your help.  Blogging every day and getting the comments really boosts my morale and makes me want to do better and better.  THANK YOU!


  1. Feeling so much at peace with food = Priceless. Embrace that feeling...

  2. Sounds like you're doing great! I love fitting into smaller clothes, though I've only experienced it one time so far, I know there will be lots more in the future and I'm excited about them!

  3. Fantastic weight loss! Every bit helps. Plus, an NSV (Non scale victory) for you with the shirt!! It will fall smoothly against your skin soon. Michele at
