I learned that stress REALLY plays a VERY big role in weight loss!! I use food to console me, or to deprive myself, depending on the situation. Lack of sleep causes me to eat more!
Accountability is a wonderful tool!! Knowing that I have to check in every Sunday has been very inspiring. No, I dont want that Large McDonalds fry! No, I dont want that bowl of ice cream. I want to lose!! Yes, I do want to do that extra 30 minutes on the treadmill! I do want to go to Zumba today!
I am listening more to what others have to say! I used to think, 'I know how to do this! I dont need to listen to what others have to say." That is so wrong. I am now soaking up the information. Researching to see if it may work for me.
I wish each of you the best as you continue this journey of weight loss and maintenance!
|Beginning Weight: 209.8|
Current Weight: 194.6 (-3.0)
Total Lost: 15.2
Final Weight 194.6 I made my 15 lb goal!!!
I decided to try on the pants and this is what I found. THEY FIT!!!!
On Ocotober 23rd, I replaced the grey pants with a black pair of size 16 pants, and a size 16 dress.
OH those rolls!
Then on December 1st, the pants zipped. Still a bit tight, but they zipped!!!

|This is the first outfit|
|This is the second pair of pants. Still pretty tight. Note the bulging muffin top!|
|And this is the dress that I absolutley love!!! If I had some body shapers for that middle bulge it would fit so much nicer!! But I can feel a BIG difference in how it fits today, compared to October 23rd.|
