I discovered this month the benefit of well fitting clothing. I have not really lost any weight in 2 months. I hit just under 250 on September 6th. Today, I weighed in at 249.3. While I wish I had lost weight the past two months, I am thrilled that my number has not gone up. Life has become complicated lately. In October, I spent a week working the Eastern New Mexico State Fair (raising money for my band student's account). I also spent a week in training in Albuquerque. This meant eating out every meal. And no time to exercise---except for the night we all went dancing together!
Anyway, while in Albuquerque, I bought some XL Old Navy shirts. In the past two weeks, I have had more compliments and comments about my weight loss than I've had all year.
One of my favorite cheerleaders (who sees me regularly) sent me this note on Facebook:
Another, who I haven't since before the transformation began (she moved away), sent this after a posted a picture from Halloween:I didn't catch you after church yesterday...but I just had to tell you that you are looking sooooooooo good! I know the road is hard at times...but this is building such perseverance in you and the fact that you are sticking w/it and being faithful to the God who built your "temple"...I think He's so pleased Love ya!!
You look amazing!! What are you doing?Even my boss' mother-in-law (who attends my church) caught me coming in on Sunday and commented on my weight loss.
So the moral of the story is:When you have lost a bunch of weight--make sure you update your wardrobe!!
The first picture is a face comparison. Our church uses a networking software program called Church Community Builder (CCB). About a year or so ago, I added a picture. Last week, I decided it was time to update the picture on my profile.
The lighting is awful, but here's a comparison. The blue shirt is one of the Old Navy XL's I mentioned.
