People are noticing...

People are actually noticing and commenting on my weight loss!

Do you have any idea how good this feels?

It feels AWESOME!!! Even before I got pregnant with DS2, I was losing, but no one was noticing. I don't do it for other people but man it feels good when they notice! It sure helps me put a swing in my step, that's for sure!!!

Seriously...I think the last time people noticed and commented was when I started this journey 6 (yes, that's right SIX) years ago. That's a long darn time! I made it down to 145 back then and got to lifetime with WW and then I got pregnant with DS1. I lost 45# that go round, and gained 55 when I was pregnant with him. Actually, if you want to get real technical I went from 145 up to 205, but the day I found out I was pregnant with him I weighed 150. I've never seen the 140s since then. But I will this time. I know I can do this and I know I WILL do this!!! I got down to 150.5 shortly after DS1 turned 1, then a bunch of stuff went on in my life (all good but very stressful at the time) and I never got back to that number before DS2 came along. I have now decided I am done having kids (we'll talk about it again when DS2 is 2 but for now, I am DONE!) and I want my body back. I want to look good. I want to run with my kids and play with them and take them swimming and feel good about doing all of it. I WILL do it this time--ALL THE WAY. My goal is 140#. I didn't weigh myself this morning b/c I forgot but I will tomorrow but things have been going well. I am just so psyched right now. I have this awesome feeling of accomplishment. And I feel so driven. It's an awesome feeling. And those compliments from other people sure do help!!!

I have to scoot for now...gotta get to bed. I have a LONG day tomorrow. I'll post WI results on Thursday!

Way to go on the compliments. Can't wait to see some pictures so I can compliment too.

As for kids, we have a couple of moments where we say 'yeah, I'd like another one.' but then I think about pregnancy and diapers and decide the two I have are just about perfect:)
