Total Weight Loss

Victory Thursday

Here are a few improvements I have noticed in the last couple of weeks:
  • My clothes fit better - They are no longer snug and I'm not having to think about which skirt is the biggest in the mornings now.  That has been replaced by which one is the warmest.
  • My waist feels smaller - That really goes along with the first one, but since I tend to carry my weight in my belly it is worth mentioning.
  • Compliments from strangers (and a couple of cat calls!)
  • I feel in charge of myself again.  I am in a good place mentally.
It is good to take a little time acknoweledge the positive changes that happen that don't show up on the scales.  The scales are not always a good measure of progress.  This is a lesson I need to learn over and over again.


  1. I'm encouraged to hear the positive note back in your voice. It was missing for a while, but for good reason following your illness. Keep up the good work and the good way of looking at victories from more than one perspective.

  2. WOO HOO! love positivity! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
