Weigh-In … Nice, 14 & Peer Pressure

Today’s Weight:  169.5
Loss/Gain:  -1.5 lbs

When I texted my husband this morning that I lost the 1.5 pounds I gained during TOM his reply was “Nice.”

Yes, it is nice.  It’s nice to know that I can have busy weeks and still see my weight go down.

It’s also nice to see that in addition to the L I’m seeing in my new shirts I’m also seeing a 14 in the bottoms now as well.  Whee!

Wednesday night I wore a size 14 skirt to church that I bought on clearance last fall in hopes it would fit soon.  I couldn’t even begin to move the zipper up when I bought it.  🙂  In fact, I almost took a picture so I could show you how much it didn’t fit when I bought it, but that was a bit immodest.   It was bad.

It zips up nicely now and I can even sit down in the skirt.  (Yes, didn’t your mother ever tell you to sit in the outfit your trying on to make sure it really fits?!?  LOL )  

At Target last night I also tried on some size 14 capris and they fit too.  They aren’t as comfy and loose as the 16s, but they do fit.

It truly is ‘nice’.

Oh, and one more thing…I’ll have to write more on this later, but I have a friend who has started running here.  She is about my size and I sent her my before picture so she’d see that if I can do this anyone can.  She was a bit amazed, and hopefully encouraged.

Sharing a bit of where I’ve come from to my new friends in this town has really helped me want to stay more on track myself, both in eating and exercise.  Now I have people who are like “Hey, Leah’s doing this.  I can too!”  It’s like positive peer pressure…knowing they are watching makes me think twice about overdoing it sometimes; but, like I said, more on that subject later.

In the meantime, have a wonderful Friday everyone!  Thanks for checking in!

    Congrats on the loss 🙂 It's always fun when we have clothes that won't fit for the longest time, and seeing all the hard work so tangibly pay off when we fit into them finally!!


  2. Great loss Leah and love that you are enjoying your smaller clothes! I think passing on the encouragement to friends and family is one of the nicest things about learning to live a healthier lifestyle!
