Yesterday I had dinner out at a work function. It was a banquet style dinner. The only thing I could eat was the chicken breast and the 4 stalks of asparagus served with the entree. So I could not eat the cream of mushroom soup, the rolls, the mashed potatoes, the apple crumble dessert with ice cream, the iced cupcake lollipops or the two kinds of cake (chocolate and vanilla). According to everyone at my table, it was all pretty tasty. Some questioned how I could not be tempted to indulge in the many desserts that were served. It was surprisingly easy. I drank a ton of water and just reminded myself how great I felt. No food could replace that feeling.
I saw many people that I have not seen in a few months and must have gotten at least (and I'm not even exaggerating) a dozen comments on my appearance. During the work day, I got an additional 6 comments from people who see me on a daily basis. I was wondering if my appearance changed dramatically over night. It is a big incentive to keep going when I get so many positive comments. Makes me want to reach my goal more than ever.
Today I went through the clearance racks at Old Navy. I found a score. A pair of shorts for under $6. Right now I have no shorts and my 16R jeans and capris are getting a bit baggy. Baggy but still comfortable. So I purchased the shorts in size 14R. A size I haven't seen since my hubby and I were first dating. I figured I'd fit into them in a few weeks. So I bring them home and try them on...and they fit perfectly. Man, I love that feeling!
