Although I'm hovering at around only 3 pounds lost (ticker can't be posted in this new layout without buggering up everything. I'm searching for a more ticker-friendly format...), I received a few compliments this weekend about the way I look! Namely when my mother-in-law pulled me aside and said "Have you lost a lot more weight?" *Blush*
OH, and went jeans shopping for the first time in a LONG time and am fitting into my University waist size! WOOOOOOO! ;)
Now, I'm not letting it go to my head, and I have taken a couple of extra steps to help me achieve my goal. I've given up desserts for lent. Candy, chocolate, pastries, ice-cream etc... They are all on my "DO NOT CONSUME" list until Easter (which, conveniently is only a handful of days before my birthday!). I've also re-established the "no eating after the kid is in bed" rule (which was implemented last year at this time - with great results). And am trying to AGAIN consume the appropriate amount of water during the day (that last one starts today).
So, hopefully, with my added diligence, the pounds will start to drop once again.
