Two Small Clothing Victories, a Scale Victory, and Beck Diet Day 3

I've been noticing something very cool happening with a pair of soft drawstring capri pants I wear all the time. I now have to pull the strings hard to get it close to being tight enough.  It's so nice to feel like I'm really making progress.  I can't wait until they are practically falling off me.

Inspired by this event, I decided to try on some of the clothes in my "skinnier" stash.  I specifically was looking for my size 16w olive cargo pants.  I managed to get them on, buttoned and zipped.  They were extremely tight, and I won't be wearing them for real yet. The fact that I even got them on, though, is wondrous.

Today, Wii Fit told me I was 229.9 pounds.  So exciting to be out of the 230s (I know it's barely, but I'll take it!) AND that means I only have 99 pounds to go until my goal of 131 pounds.  It's such a relief to not have a triple digit goal hanging over my head anymore.

As for the Beck Diet - Day 3 is all about eating while sitting down.  I was thinking about it today.  I do tend to eat my main meals while sitting down, but I'll grab snacks while I am up in the kitchen and eat them right then. I did it today, in fact, when I grabbed some apple chips out of the dehydrator.  When you sit down to eat, it means you are paying more attention to what you are eating.

I am so excited today - I just love the fact that it's starting to feel like it's really going to happen!

YAH for you Nessa - I weighed tonight and I have lost seven pounds so far - but I haven't been trying very long. I am starting a new diet plan called Thrive soon. I know lots of people who have had success with it. It is a lifestyle change!
