Celebrate the Small Stuff

Had a doctor's appointment last week, was looking forward to smaller #s.
I have lost a few pounds and my bp went down a bit, but neither were as 'small' as I had hoped.

I know this is a journey of 1000 miles...I certainly didn't get this fluffy overnight, and I'm not going to become 'unfluffy' overnight either. Why do I struggle with this?  Rather than worrying about how far I have to go, I need to focus on how far I've come.  I'm wearing smaller jeans for goodness sakes...and that is something to celebrate!!

Mr. T and Me

I have a new buddy at work...his name is Mr. T. Readmill.

We have been meeting up during breaks for the last couple of weeks, and I think I'm in love.

Here's a picture of us last week.

On My Way

About a month ago I went to Penny's to get a new pair of jeans. They were on sale, woo hoo!! I grabbed the size I have been for years, and they were too big!! I almost cried in the dressing room. I gathered my things and scurried back to the jeans and grabbed the next size down and hurried back into the dressing room. The 22's FIT!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG, I thought to myself, tears welling up in my eyes. I proceeded to text Jake, my Mom, and sisters and a couple of friends my great news. I couldn't believe it!!

I wore them for the first time last Sunday, and they fit better than they did at the store!!! I'm doing it...this is working. I can do this!!
