Still mind

Hi. Still here.

I have lost a bit over 42 pounds. Very happy about that.

My current dress size- if you took the numbers- would be half of my original dress size. That amuses me. It's the little things in life I suppose, that make us happy and that one makes me very happy.

I have about 14 pounds to go until I am in the 'Normal' weight range. I haven't been in the 'Normal' weight range couldn't tell you how many years. I don't know if I will make it there or if I do, how long it will take, but I plan to keep plugging along. For now, I am happy with how things are going.

I feel great- my clothes are LOOSE. This is something I am not accustomed to- loose clothing. My clothes were always tight- constricting even. This droopy, loose clothing thing is different, even a bit disconcerting. I keep needing to buy new ones so they don't fall off. Such problems. Ha ha.

Seven months ago, if you had told me I would be the size I am now, I would have told you that you needed to see someone. Really- they have people you can talk to. This just wasn't going to happen for me. Oddly enough it did.

Pretty cool.

Update....Losing Weight

I haven't posted any updates on my dieting....I think because I was afraid I would jinx myself.

Now that I am approaching a major milestone in my weight loss, I think I am ok posting an update. You can laugh at's silly to think that a blog post can completely undo a diet plan, but hey- this is big stuff...can't mess with the mojo.

As of right now, I am just over a pound from a weight loss total of 40 pounds! That is FORTY POUNDS!!!!!!!!! Yes, I am excited. I have dropped 4 dress sizes in just over 6 months.

I feel really good, both physically and mentally. I feel better walking, sitting, moving...basically doing anything. Losing the weight has helped my pain level a great deal. When I look in the mirror, I am starting to see myself again, instead of that fat woman I didn't recognize.

It's nice- I missed me.
