The Scale Was Kind!

Sorry its been days since I've blogged. I think I've barely been able to sit still lately long enough to blog. If I've not been unsettled, I've been stitching when I can since there's a deadline on my MacDonald Maple Leaf. Also I tend to blog at night before bed, and lately I've had a headache at bedtime so I haven't exactly felt like composing a blog entry.

Finally my hard work the last two weeks has paid off! The scale moved for me today at Weight Watchers, I lost 2lbs this week! I have definitely beaten my weight loss total for January with this weigh in alone. I am now sitting UNDER 150 lbs ... I couldn't tell you when I last weighed less than 150lbs (at least grade 7)! I have lost a total of 58lbs and there's only 12 more to go until I'm at goal! Speaking of weight loss, I had a great experience Friday night, a friend and I went jeans shopping (for her, not me ... for a change). My friend had an awesome NSV (Non-Scale Victory), she's been loosing weight as well and she thought she should be in one sized jean, I encouraged her to try on the next size down. Oh we were both so happy and on such a high! We also both bought tops (well she bought me mine, as a thank you for playing personal shopper) and made each other buy something that wasn't our usual style, but looked great. There are "safe" styles and sometimes its nice to buy something that you wouldn't normally wear. You know who you are... and I'm so proud of what you've managed to accomplish so far!


Now that I've bored you with the mundane, here's my progress on MacDonald Maple Leaf!

Dani, What an accomplishment you've acheived with your weight loss. I feel so proud of you! Don't starve yourself here near the end because you want to keep it healthy. I used to weigh 150 lbs., and it took me a year to lose to 120, so I'm just in awe of your commitment. With love and hugs, Deb
