just like I thought!

Well, I was up today when I went to weigh in...1.6 pounds, in fact. But instead of being bummed, I am proud to say that I bought a size 10 on Friday, I have lost 27 pounds so far and I look GOOD!

I inspired my neighbor to start going back to the gym. My lifelong skinny friend (who has recently put on a few too many) has started a weight loss program after seeing my success. Today I walked further than I ever have before...and it only took me 1 minute longer...for over 500 steps. I was crankin!!!

So instead of feeling like "oh, my gosh, I gained again", I am going to focus my energy on what is positive and showing the changes right now. Thanks for the help with that Kathy.

I guess this is the week for gain. But you're right not to be bummed because you have so much more to celebrate. . . like the size 10!! Congrats!

Good for you! I LOVE your attitude!!
When I bought my size 10 jeans I wanted to wear them inside out so everyone could see the tag!
It's also great that you are such an inspiration to your freinds and people around you!!
Keep it up!

you have such a great attitude! mine was horrible last week, after my gain, and i realize now that i totally overreacted... continuing to make better food choices, exercising, and being patient is all i can do... and sometimes when the scale doesn't show progress, your clothes will - great job! :o)

Congrats on the positive attitude! The scale doesn't always tell the whole story.
