My husband was looking at me today and asked how much weight I've lost. I haven't weighed myself since I was weighed at the clinic more than two weeks ago. I get weighed at my family doctor on Thursday afternoon, so I will report then. So as far as I know, I'm still at 60 pounds lost. He claims that I look like I have lost weight again...in my boobs! My mother-in-law actually said the same thing to me back at Christmas. Do I mind losing weight in my chest? Nope. When I was in high school, I was a B-cup. I've never been terribly big chested. Even being plus-sized, I was never bigger than a C. Not even when I was pregnant and later when I was nursing. And I'm definitely okay with that. My husband may not agree, but I'm okay with losing as much weight as possible in my chest!
I have noticed changes in my body that excite me. I can now comfortably wear my wedding band. In fact, it is getting loose on me. When I got married, I was 60 pounds bigger. In an attempt to not have to admit that I needed a bigger ring size than the samples, I ordered my ring a couple of sizes too small. I think it's a nine. I wore it on my wedding day, then took it off and only started wearing it again since Christmas. This is a big change because it easily slides on and off, and no longer cuts off my circulation.

I've read on a few blogs about people worrying about loose skin and thinking about surgery after they've finished losing weight. I respect anyone's decision to do what they need to in order to feel better about themselves. I've also thought about this and the jury's still out for me. I don't think I could make that decision until I'm in that place and have reached my weight-loss goal. That being said though, I loved my imperfect over weight body, so I may just love my imperfect health weight body too. Only time will tell.
