Thirty Pounds

As of this morning, I’ve achieved a 30 pound loss since mid-January.

I did break down and buy some new clothes this past week as it was painfully obvious that my jeans were just too loose. Β I bought not only one size down, but also two sizes down in anticipation of future needs.

Well, that smaller size is a lot closer to fitting than I thought when I bought them πŸ˜‰

At the repeated request of my friends at work, I cleared a few items out of the closet this weekend that are just too big. Β I’m not ready to completely rebuild the wardrobe – the cost alone prevents that and I’d have to do it again in a few months πŸ˜€

These are lovely small victories that keep me motivated when the alarm goes off at 5:45am. Β I am NOT a morning person, so getting up 30 minutes early to allow for at least a one mile walk before I get ready for work is a HUGE change! Β DH gets up with me as the heat of summer is here and he needs to get his daily walk in as well. Β He just keeps going for a bit after I head back home.

If you want more information on how I’m doing or on Weight Watchers or just need a poke to keep you on track, please drop me a line πŸ™‚
