When Searching Google for Pictures, Beware, and Thank You.
You never know what you’ll find. Who the hell knew Lane Bryant was around so many years ago? (This image below is circa 1962 or so.) I hate them now, I probably would have hated them then. Well, hate is too strong a word. Lane Bryant was there when I needed them (oh, no, I hear a song…) but they have no clue about really, really dressing for your size. If all goes according to plan – Weight Watchers, and my determination – I’ll never have to set foot in there again.
Today I am down another 1.4 pounds and I hit my goal of 30.4 pounds total so far! My next goal is 40 pounds total by Labor Day. I know I can do it. If not exactly by that Monday, it will be soon thereafter. I have only 9.6 pounds to lose in four weeks. I can do that.
Believe it or not, my total weight loss goal is 100 pounds. (I won’t say where that will put me, but it’s in a nice healthy range, trust me.) Today, there was a lady at WW who hit her goal. I don’t know how much total she lost, but I had a glimpse of what that might feel like. I hope to hit that by next spring, if not sooner.
I also know this is not a diet. This is a complete life change – a new way of thinking, a new way of eating, a new way of living. For example, today we talked about mental rehearsing. How to prepare for situations so that the actions we take seem effortless. It’s more about just learning what vegetables to eat and what sweets to avoid. I’m learning and absorbing so much that no one ever taught me before – either because they didn’t know to teach me or I wasn’t going to listen.
Anyway, a huge message of thanks goes to you guys too for cheering me on, for telling me how fabulous you think I look in my new skirts and stuff because that inspires me to keep going. You have no idea how your words ring in my head when I crave the popcorn with butter slathered over it.
No more chubbies for me. Unless the chubby’s name is Evan, and you are 8 months old. His kind of chubby is completely acceptable and I can’t get enough of it.
