I have no big news to report. Since my great declaration I have progressed .2 pounds toward my goal. I will say, however, that in general I feel good. I have been much more mindful about what is going in my mouth than I have for several months. I also find myself looking for more ways to be active. I know all of these tweaks are going to add up to the big payoff that I am looking for.
I can't deny how far I have come. I rearranged our closet last week and just for kicks I pulled out my wedding dress. It is now so big on me that I couldn't wrap it tight enough to look fitted. I just sort of stared at my reflection for awhile. When I bought it the dress was my favorite of the dresses that came in the store's largest size.
On weeks when the scale hasn't gone the way I hoped I can still embrace non scale milestones. I wear smaller sizes, have greater mobility, and I feel so much more comfortable in my skin. When all is said and done I can not live by the number on the scale, my eyes are on a much bigger prize. I want to be healthy, live longer, play with my son and squeeze all the juice out of this life I have been given.
