Looking Great in 2008 Challenge

I did not post yesterday and I wasnt home, but I still left my numbers on the Tales from the Scales Blog. I was down 1.6 for the week making me at a total of 12.4 pounds lost!!! Hooray for me!

The week overall was a good week for me. I had a hard time last weekend as I wanted so badly to fall into some of my old habits, like comfort eating. This week I have been really proud of myself. Usually every week I am up some days and down other days, but this week I have been down every time I have weighed in at the center and that is a rare occaison.

This week was also the first week I really noticed a difference in how my body is changing. We had to wear business casual clothes so I pulled out my nice black suit pants in 2 different sizes. The bigger size used to fit me ok and the smaller size very snugly. I put the larger pair on and they were huge on me! I was glad to see that I can wear some of my old clothes again. My weight has fluctuated so much in the last few years so I have clothes in many different sizes and I like that the ones I have had to put away I can bring out now and see how I look in them. The only down side to this is that the counselors at the center keep asking how I feel about how I look now. The reality is, over a year ago I weighed about 15 pounds less than this, and several years ago I weighed like 40 pounds less than this! So to me, I dont feel "thin" yet, but I know I will get there and when I do, it will definitely be worth it!
