proud of ME!

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 :tongue:

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 :heart:

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 :wink:

    I have to say that it is moments like those, that are intimate in so many ways that until we feel them, we almost forgot they existed and they give us a new found strength to keep going!!!! Thank you for sharing, I needed that reason to smile today!

    Congrats!!!
