It’s been a week full of non-scale victories!
I am now able to sit on a wooden porch swing, with one of the individuals at the day program I work at, without fear that it’s going to break with both of us on there! No sounds of wood splitting when I sit down with him! 100+ lbs ago I wouldn’t have dared to even sit down on it by myself! Then on Thursday I had to buy some new work pants because my current ones (size 22) were getting really baggy. The new ones are in a size 18!!! That’s a big NSV for me, I used to wear a size 32! Later that night I kept thinking that that when I would go to get dressed on Friday morning that they won’t fit me even though they did in the dressing room. But they did and I wore them to work and was in a great mood all day because of it!
It’s a three day weekend for me and I am really enjoying the time off. I spent my Saturday night at the Northeast Ohio WordPress 10th Anniversary Party and had a wonderful time!
Today I went out to my Goodwill stores with my husband and found a dress to wear for my upcoming birthday party. Tomorrow I will be working on a poster I am making for my 30th birthday/weight loss journey party. I am really looking forward to my party which is in two weeks on June 9 which also happens to be my actual birthday!
