A nice surprise....

I usually bought size 4x Tshirts cause I like 'em big and sloppy. Plus they don't shrink if they get in the dryer accidentally.

THIS PAST WEEK, I bought a size 3x and had to return it!! I'm in a 2x now and they fit niceeeeeee!! I also splurged and bought two pair of pants that were on clearance in a size below what I had been wearing!!

But the best thing of all is this......today when I was getting ready for work and wearing my new tshirt, hubby walks into the kitchen, takes a look and says "I hope this don't offend you, but your tits stick out farther than your belly now". (He's such a sweet talker...lmao)

WOW! Offend me? NO WAY!! I was walking on air and strutting these tits all day..lmao

How is everyone else doing? The weight loss is slow for me, but I have good eating habits formed now. I slip occasionally but nothing like the binge eating I was once guilty of.

I am not posting weight loss totals until Christmas, I wanna surprise everyone!!

I still struggle everyday to make sure the bad habits don't sneak back up on me. And eating out is still a challenge, but hey, no one said it would be easy. One meal and one day at a time is my motto for now.

Woo hoo! I want a picture of you in that new T-shirt!

I went to the doctor this morning, and I weigh about what I did the last time I was there a few weeks ago. And the same as I was a few weeks before that. (I never weigh myself; I just let the doctor do it.) I'm around 200 pounds, give or take a pound. I think this is where I'm supposed to be. It's where I've been for over a year and a half. The good eating habits are just that now: habits.

I can't wait for Christmas to see the weight totals. What a great Christmas present that will be to yourself!

Congratulations, Berri.

Congrats on your success, Berri. You should be proud. It's difficult eating hospital food every day...so my "diet" is on the back burner.

My daughter is much better...yesterday she walked for the first time...with each of her arms around a therapist for support, of course. She is also speaking more and more...still spontaneously, not in answer to questions, but HEY...I'll take it!
Miss you all...
