I'm so glad to read that my postings are helpful! I appreciate that..it helps me to stay on track and to really pay attention to what I'm doing to make this work so I can share it with you all.
It dawned on me that for the most part I have transitioned to being a THIN person....the compliments have stopped coming my way ( except from my oldest daughter, bless her heart, who will still say. " mom, you look so skinny in those pants!) People I see everyday or regularly have gotten used to the new me...I must admit I do miss those compliments!
So I realize it's so important for ME to remember what I used to look like and feel like 68 lbs heavier....to daily remind myself what a blessing it is to be at goal and to now be reaping the benefits of all those months of losing weight.
It's funny that some family members have asked if I'm always going to be eating " this way". I guess they mean making healthy choices and being picky about what I choose to eat. I answer " Yes!" I realize they have seen me overweight most of my life and wonder if this is just temporary so it'll be an adjustment for them to get used to my new way of eating...of living.
I can see the pride in my husband's eyes when he sees me still eating healthy..it means so much to me! He has always been so accepting of me whether I'm fat or those very few times in our 39 years together when I've been thin...he always has said he loves me for me. I want to be the best I can be not only for myself but for him.
I wish I could go back to when I was 22 years old and tell myself all I know now! Lose the weight while you're young and can enjoy all life has to offer! When you can wear all the trendy clothes! Don't waste years limiting yourself! 6 months, 9 months, 1 year of working hard to lose weight is not a long time when you put it in to perspective....do it now when you are young and healthy!
But I also know now it is never too late! I am the happiest I have been in a very long time...counting my blessings every day!

Your posts make me smile, Laura.  I am so happy that you are happy.  And it sounds like you have a big cheerleader in your husband.  Mine is the same way and I love that. 

My sister is not fortunate in that way with her husband, and I think it makes a big difference in your weight loss journey when you don't have your spouse's support.  She is struggling with Jenny as she's done in the past.  I want to sometimes smack my BIL in the head and tell him, "Would it kill you to give her a compliment once in a while."  Seriously, she's lost 50 pounds in the last year and a half.  She still has about another 40 or so to go, but her husband tells her he doesn't really see any difference when she asks him how she looks.  Unbelievable!  :angry:

 

Anyway, I'm glad you have that support and are having a blast enjoying all your smaller clothes.  Thanks for all the updates, too.  So inspiring.

We are so blessed to have great supportive husbands...It's sad that your sister has to deal with that! Good for her to not let it discourage her from keeping on plan!
Holding steady at 140 lbs....
I went shopping today and stopped by Nordstrom to buy a new bra. The salesperson convinced me to get fitted again even though I did last summer. Good thing I did..I dropped a bra size! I love the way Wacoal bras fit..bought 3 new ones!
I also stopped at my favorite store, JJill ( I worked there for 4-5 years part time and had a 40% discount--- boy, did I take advantage of that! I wore size 8 pants and tops in medium during that time so that's what's filling up my closet now! Most still fit.. Thank God for that!) Well, bought new black jeans in size 6 and a gray vnecked pullover sweater in Small!! They both fit well
( smile) and I figure that will give me added incentive to not gain weight now that the holidays are just around the corner.....it sure is fun shopping now but a girl can just wear so many clothes!
Tomorrow should be fun..taking my mother in law to breakfast then to a Casino to celebrate her 92nd birthday. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful woman for a mother in law. She is the best! She's slowing down quite a bit so this might be one of the last times she'll be able to go and enjoy it...the years pass by so fast, don't they?
