How can a week make a difference?

Don't know, but boy can it ever!

15 pounds ago, I was a size 14. I blogged last week about all the different sizes in my in my closet and drawers and how I decided to try some of my old (smaller) clothes on. And how they didn't fit and were still just as tight as ever! http://beautifulp31.blogspot.com/2009/05/one-size-fits-all.html

I mean puh-leeze, I've now lost 15 pounds, and I've been a real good girl!!!! Frustrated at this, I decided to put myself through the same torture again today, hoping for better results.

AND I GOT THEM!!!! Yes! I fit into my size 12's!!! And easily at that! So, good bye 14's, hello for a while 12's and I look forward to seeing you 10's!

Yippee aye Ayyyyyyyyy!

Weight loss success feels great. A smaller boo-hiney feels great. Fitting into size 12 feels great! Believing I'm beautiful no matter what the number, shape, or size....priceless!

Beautliful Blessings,


Later Edit: When I began this weight loss/health plan 6 weeks ago, my blood pressure was 125/85. Too high. I took it again today and it was 118/78! I'd say that's a great improvement. Amazing what just 15 pounds can do. Oh I feel good!

You turkey! You didn't tell me you had a weight loss blog too! (or maybe it's just that I wasn't paying attention...most likely that!) Anyway, SO proud of you! I know how hard this is, and you should celebrate! I can't wait to hit a 12- but I am happy to have my svelte 16 for now! Don't ever stop celebrating the little victories. I always remember that the little boy brought a small lunch to church, and had no idea that that lunch would feed 4 thousand! Small differences make ALL the difference! :) I'll be praying for you, sweet sister, and hopefully we'll meet less of each other in July!
