mamaX4's Journal, 11 April 2007

Woo Hoo! I hit my first 10 pound goal - I feel so much better about myself already. I can finally see some difference in my bod; my butt and thighs haven't changed at all, but my upper body is thinning, so much so that I can tell where my ribs are again! I've always been shaped this way, so that in pictures from the waist up I look VERY different than the real deal. Anyway...

I am going to stick to my version of Phase 1. I don't miss most of the things I can start adding back (except orange juice. Remember orange juice? Like a gift straight from God...), and since it's working for me, I want to get a really solid start before I take the chance of a backslide.

Also, I get my first reward! I'm going to carve out some time to go out ALONE, get a fancy coffee, and get my nails done. Having pretty hands is always a mood lifter for me, and combined with the feel-good loss, I am getting to like myself again.
180.0 lb Lost so far: 10.0 lb.    Still to go: 20.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

10 lbs. in a little over 2 weeks!! Nicely done!! Seeing a body difference is what it's all about. I think butts and thighs are God's way of forever reminding us that we have carried children. I'm at pre-baby weight, mostly wearing pre-baby clothes, except for my hips and upper thighs. It's just different now. But I'll take any progress I can get, and if that just means a nice upper body, so be it. :) Keep up the good work!!

Thank you to all of you who are so sweet and supportive! I have never been part of a community like this, and I have been pleasantly surprised by how important it is to me to read it each day, and try to give back the same support to you all. I love the graphs, showing all the progress we are making, and hearing ideas (and gripes, even) from everyone, because we're all in the same boat. THANK YOU, EVERYONE!

Please tell me you will be having your nails colored? Ten pounds that fast? You should have them painted bright pink and when people are like, "what's with your bright pink nails?" you can be like "I painted one nail pink FOR EVERY POUND I LOST!!"
