Thirty Pounds Lost

I have officially hit thirty pounds lost. This is more than I've ever lost. Seriously, ever. It's a great feeling. I can finally see the light. I have a way to go to where my goal weight is. However, I have never, in my adult life, been at a "normal" weight so I'm not sure how low I truly will end up going. I want to be healthy, not a certain weight. I want to be fit. Strong. 

My husband and I went on a date last night. It was impromptu. We saw Brad Paisley, thanks to his boss. This was a show I truly have been wanting to see for years. He looked amazing in his Wranglers, cowboy hat, and boots. I dug a pretty plaid shirt out of the closet that hadn't seen daylight in a long time. It was gaping at the buttons last time I tried it on. I wore it last night and it was loose. I wore a cute denim skirt that used to be stretched across my belly tightly. It too was getting loose well, while standing more than sitting. I like this feeling. The concert (and date) were so much fun!

Oh, and just a reminder, if you are losing weight you should go through your clothes (namely underwear) every so often before wearing them. Otherwise, you may be in public with your knickers falling down. Waaaay down. Don't ask me how I know. Just take it on faith. ;)

A big congratulations! I have 20 lbs to lose and I am trying by changing the way I eat (more fruits and vegetables) and changing my relationship with food. (Not trying to use food to bring joy and stress relief.) Keep it up!
