4 WOW's this week!

May 02, 2009

First, I finally started to lose again, and I'm down 58.5 pounds today!!  Yay me!

Second, I saw my best friend on Thursday night, who I hadn't seen for 11 weeks.  She looked after me for the 3 days after I was home from surgery, before my daughter came.  She phoned me the next day, and said that she was amazed at how I looked.  She said it was a good thing I hadn't changed my hair, or she wouldn't have even recognized me!  I asked her if she was serious, and she said "well put it this way, if you had come over here with long hair, I would have had to do a double take that's for sure".  I was really surprised, but it was a wonderful reaction from someone who knows me so well.  I guess when we see ourselves every day, we don't notice the changes as much as someone who hasn't seen us for almost 3 months.

Third, I got into my size 16 jeans!!!!  I couldn't believe it!  I was so excited!  I have 2 pairs that I've had for about 5 years, and luckily I saved them, but after this, I'll have to start buying.

Fourth, my BMI has gone down from 47.7 down to 37.7 with the 58.5 pound loss.  I am thrilled, because that will be my ultimate goal; getting down to a normal range in my BMI.  To be down 10 points, I am beyond happy!

I went to see my doctor this week, and he was really pleased that I have been getting out and socializing more.  After my recent depression, he was really glad to know that I have made friends (Kattzia and Gail B. thank you, thank you, thank you!!) who have dragged me out even when I didn't really feel like going, and then ended up having a wonderful time despite myself!  He wants me to do more of that, and to try and not miss any more of the support group meetings, because I enjoy them so much.

Hope everyone is enjoying this spring weather!
