NSV #4-#7

Had a coworker stop by my office today and said, “You’ve lost a lot of weight”. (Emphasis on a lot!) He said I looked really good and congratulated me on a good job.

Also, I’ve inspired my mom. She started on South Beach yesterday and now phones me at least 2-3 times a day ~ can I have this, can I have that, how do you do this, how do you do that……Well, you get the idea. I love you, Mom 🙂

I bought 2 pairs of size 10 Levi’s yesterday. Woo-hoo!!!

I’ve got definition in my arms. Me. The girl who can see herself the worst distorted way imaginable. I’ve got definition in my arms!

Three NSVs (aka Yay, Me!)

I went to the gym tonight ~ even though I didn’t want to. To be honest, I’d planned on it but by the end of the day I just didn’t want to go. But I dressed out and went anyway. 60 minutes on the ellipitical; 15 minutes on the bike.

I had an orientation with a prior employee today ~ she’d only left 6 months ago, so that would have been the last time she saw me. She didn’t recognize me. (That’s a good thing!)

I have a pair of pants I bought in December ~ they’re supposed to be fitted, a little snug in the butt ~ and they looked great. They’re too big now. I can still wear them, but they’re no longer fitted.

NSV #2

Well, NSV #2 since I started this blog. I fit into my size 12 jeans this morning! Woo-hoo. AND there is another jacket I’ve been dying to wear that hasn’t even fit me ~ it fits me now 🙂 I only wish it didn’t have the built in shoulder pads.


I have a coat that my mom gave me a few years ago that I was never able to fit into. I held onto it with the intention that one day, it would fit. Well, this morning……….it fit and I wore it to work. A great way to start my day.
