Hello to all my "peeps"!
Wow!! So much inspiration going on here!! To Rosalie on your 80# loss and the pictures you posted.... amazing stuff girl! You truly are living the BFC and my goodness, it shows! I think you need to write to Jorge and send him some pics. You may be in the next book or as an online "loser" (you are a winner for sure!) And to Lindsey for losing 8# this week...awesome!! Geez, I have to say, seeing this all just inspires me to keep going! Thank you girls for sharing your successes with all of us. I cant wait to be standing in my favorite jeans like Rosalie and holding them out like that! Oh yeah...its goona happen this year!! My weight has been kind of holding this month and as disappointing as that has been, I believe the true proof is in the way my clothing feel. I know I have said this in previous posts, but it feels so good to wear stuff I havent been able to get in to for YEARS!!! So many things are now baggy on me and it just feels great! I put my usual scrubs on this morning (size XL) and the pants are just so darned big on me, but when I go down to a large, they feel a little snug to me and I would rather them be a little big and pull the drawstring tight & roll them down at the waist then to have my pants hang on to every lump & bump. Its like showing your panty lines....there aint nothin pretty about panty lines!! Another 10# and I feel certain that I will be in a smaller size pants. I wear a Large size top in our scrubs and that too is getting big on me but like I said, I am gonna wait for another 10# loss to go down to a medium.
As I was walking in to work this morning, one of the girls from scheduling said to me, "you're losing weight, arent you"? She said "I can really tell in your face." It really made me feel good to hear that...finally!! I think when people start noticing your weight loss is when it really becomes a catalyst to propel you forward. For some reason, I seem to always show my weight loss in my face first, then it seems to go in the legs and butt and then the belly. Sheesh, lets get rid of some of this back fat too for petes sake....yuck! It is really on my nerves these days!! But I know, it will come off in time and I am riding this out and going to work harder this week to show a nice loss! I am so close to hitting 10% of my body weight off ...I am about 5.5# away from that and they say when you lose 10% you are on the road to good health. I am on board with that thought for sure!!
So thats the "thoughts du Sherri" today. I hope you are all off to the start of another great week!! Keep on Keepin on my friends!! Sowly but surely, we are getting there!
Love & belief!
