Well, this is totally a 'me' post but I'm just feeling so proud and energized today and I have to let it out!! Maybe it will inspire someone
So, I'm 5.5 weeks in to this wonderful new lifestyle. I'm down 17lbs and several inches which is GREAT!!
I had a nice moment this evening right before going out to the store quickly: I was giving my hubby a hug and his arms reached right around my sides. I noticed because, well, I'm not used to feeling hands there!! So that was probably the best measurement yet. A tighter hug from my husband
Yesterday I made a goal to have a couple of nutritional superstar days each week. I'm usually quite good each day (about 100 cals go to a treat like a healthy choice pudding cup) and today I did it!! I haven't been able to let go of some sense of a "treat" each day yet, and today was the day. I just feel on top of the world and so balanced and in control of my nutrition - not a slave to emotional habits as I was 6 weeks ago.
I feel so healthy, so good, so happy, so proud, so confident, so athletic... YAY MFP for giving me such great tools and community support!!
We can ALL do this thang
