Yesterday I went on a mini shopping spree and bought three pairs of new work pants. All in a size smaller than what I have been wearing. I won our office "Biggest Loser" and $155, so ever better — they were "free" pants!
In February 07, I went to the doctor weighing the most I've ever weighed in my life. Since then, I've lost 19 lbs. It's been a slow process, but I'm glad that not only have I continued to lose, but I've kept off what I've lost. Yay me!
I'm not where I want to be yet. But for the first time in my life, I'm not discouraged because I haven't lost everything "right now." I'm happy that I've continued to plug away at it.
My next goal is 10 more lbs before Africa in June 09.
