Happy

Weighed in at 163.6..hooray! So glad that I am down. Wow I cant believe I only have 3 pounds to lose. Crazy to even imagine at this point.

I went out to a few stores after work to buy some summer clothes. I had mentioned before everything was big from last summer and I have been wearing like the same 4 shirts every week because they are the only ones I have that fit me. It was nice to go out and find some things that looked cute. I had a lot of luck at this store Maurices. They had such cute summer things and I ended up spending $100 bucks! Fashion isnt cheap.

Im glad that so many people enjoyed the quiz I posted yesterday. It was really interesting the asnwers that came out. It kind of reminds me of things I have said before about how I will always have to think about food and be conscious of what goes in my mouth. Its definitely not like I will hit goal and BAM, suddenly my food issues will be gone and I can eat like a "normal" person. I know I will still have to think about food and plan my meals out and try to make the best choices I can every day. It never ends, but Im actually ok with that. I started this whole thing just wanting to lose weight. Now I just want to be healthy and find myself cutting out even more processed food that I ever did before. It is really freeing to not have those sugar cravings or to be putting chemicals in my body. I really do want to eat this way forever.

Yaay for weight loss AND clothes that fit! We're having a tax-free weekend this week, so I'm off for clothes shopping tomorrow and a little bit on Sunday.

Have a great weekend!

I'll have to be a member of the "Watch It" Club the rest of my life too...it just doesn't come naturally to me no matter how long I do it. There are a lot of us out here in the same boat so at least you're not alone!

Wanting to eat healthy is what will help you maintain your weightloss. I think a lot of "us" after losing weight, tend to think we can start eating the old way (which got us fat to begin with).

Congratulations on being 3 pounds from goal and on buying smaller summer clothes.

WOW!! Great job! 3 pounds from goal, you'll be there before the first day of summer for sure!

Enjoy the new clothes.

That is so great that you are almost at the finish line. Great job on your accomplishment. You're right about the continuous food watching, too. One can never let their guard down and it sounds like you are enjoying the changes you made with food so that should help you stay strong and avoid temptations.

You are such an inspiration! It is so nice to see how close you are to your goal! I am so excited for you - but I hope even after you meet your goal, as with keeping your life changes up, you keep blogging!!

Great job! You are just continuing to do so well, excellent work. New clothes are the best, esp. when they are smaller sizes.
